The Chester Aerobic Tests Software contains the Step Test Calculator which predicts aerobic fitness in 4 simple steps.
The software currently runs on PC only and is not suitable for Mac users unless running Windows 7 or later. This software is for one user licence and comes as a download. We also offer a Portable USB Stick Licence that works on any computer you plug it into, ideal for Doctors Surgeries or Occupational Health Sites. If needed for a larger organisation, please get in touch for a site-wide license quote (30+ users).
If you are looking to test many people then this software is great. The calculator takes heart rate data at set intervals. Once the software has enough data it provides an immediate Vo2 result. The Chester Step Test Protocol provides a reliable assessment of aerobic capacity. Developed by Professor Kevin Sykes in 1998, the Chester Step Test protocol is a sub-maximal, multistage, aerobic capacity test. The test requires a step, heart rate watch and a test calculator.
This makes the test suitable for assessments where space and time may be tight. The test is also suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness. The benefit of the Chester Step Test software is that it makes getting results from the test quick and easy. Used by the Fire & Rescue service and Police Forces worldwide, the test is also used by the fitness industry, occupational health and education.
The Chester Step Test uses a variety of step heights which include: 15cm, 20cm, 25cm and 30cm.
This accommodates a broad range of ages and abilities and shows no gender-bias. It is the most portable aerobic step test and only requires a step (of relevant height), a heart rate watch, a method to track data such as this software or a data sheet pad.
