Via www.sportkeuring.be, sports people can check whether a sporting medical check-up is required (on the basis of the chosen sport, age, personal and family history) and what the check-up involves.
Possible elements include a case-history review, clinical examination, resting electrocardiogram and evaluation of the SCORE risk. The selection robot generates a recommendation of whether or not to have a check-up, on the basis of a comprehensive literature study.
sportkeuring.be offers (the parents of) sports people a clear tool for checking whether a sporting medical check-up could be worthwhile and the choice robot provides an effective answer in the quest for information about its use and practicality.
Sports people who are not members of a club but have doubts about their medical suitability for a particular sport, can ask a doctor for a sporting medical check-up. Sports federations can recommend the sporting medical check-up to their members, or even make this compulsory. The examination will not be reimbursed by the NIHDI (National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance). More information on the website.
