Differences in strength of correlation between task simulations are discussed with respect to differences observed in force distributions about the handle for the three tasks.

Use our guide to conducting, recording, and interpreting fitness tests. In sports and particularly exercise testing, the rating of perceived exertion RPEas measured by the Borg rating of perceived exertion scale RPE scale[1] [2] [3] is a frequently used quantitative measure of perceived exertion during physical activity. The scale of perceived exertion is how hard you feel your body is working, and so is a subjective measure.


The scale is commonly used for measuring angina pain and breathlessness dyspneamusculoskeletal pain and other kinds of somatic symptoms. The first and most common scale is the graded RPE-scale Borg, It can be used to measure taste and smell, loudness and noise, brightness and other sensations, but also moods and emotions e.

There are over fitness testsso it’s not easy to choose the best one. The Borg RPE scale is a numerical scale that ranges from 6 to 20, [7] where 6 means “no exertion at all” and scals means “maximal exertion.

There is another very similar RPE scale also developed by Borg, with the ratings betweenand the CR centiMax scalea more finely-graded scale.

There are several versions of this sccale. Med Sci Sports Exerc. The gripping of tools is required by many industrial operations, and an important aspect of exposure assessment is determining the grip force output of operators. Pearson correlations conducted on an individual basis were greatest for the screwdriver task, r approximately 0. A component that appears to integrate many variables during whole-body exercise is the rating of perceived exertion RPE [15].

Rating of Fatigue — a scale for measuring fatigue other athlete questionnaires about the Likert Scale Popular Content Comments. Borg scale ratings reported following each trial were compared with mean, peak, and integrated grip forces for the respective trials.

See also novel variations of this scale using hand signals. This is also called the Borg CR10 Scale. The CR scale is best suited when there is an overriding sensation arising either from a specific area of the body, for example, muscle pain, ache or fatigue in the quadriceps or from pulmonary responses.

The sensitivity and reproducibility of the results are broadly very borf, although the Borg may outperform the Likert scale in some cases.


Borg CR scale as a new approach to monitoring office exercise training.

This is especially used in clinical diagnosis of breathlessness and dyspnea, chest pain, angina and musculo-skeletal pain. Testing Extra There are over fitness testsso it’s not easy to choose the best one.

The Borg Angina Scale is not a separate scale. It is commonly used in some research studies for that purpose, but may also be used in training programs to describe the intensity of training sessions. ABOUT contact author info advertising. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

You should consider the validity, reliability, costs and ease of use of each test.
