Child screening

At Gymnasia Sports Performance and Rehabilitation Institute (SPRI), we're passionate about helping children grow up healthy, strong, and confident. We understand that every child is unique, and that's why we've designed a comprehensive program that can be tailored to your child's specific needs and goals.
1. Initial Physical therapist consultation and Medical History Assessment
Our program begins with an in-depth consultation with our in-house pediatric physical therapist. This initial meeting will involve a thorough review of your child's personal and family medical history, a general physical examination, and a discussion about any health concerns you might have. We'll also discuss your child's lifestyle, dietary habits, and current physical activity levels to get a complete picture of their health.

2. Fitness Assessment Tests
Based on the initial consultation, we will conduct a series of fitness assessment tests suitable for your child's age and development:
  • For children aged 6 and above, we offer the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and balance test to assess their movement quality, balance, flexibility, joint range of motion and coordination.
  • We conduct a cardiorespiratory fitness test (20-meter shuttle run) to measure the health of your child's heart and lungs during exercise.
  • The Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) will help us identify any potential health issues before starting an exercise program.
  • Body Composition Analysis will provide a measurement of your child's height, weight, and BMI. For older children (typically ages 12 and up), we can also measure body fat percentage.
  • For those interested in a specific sport, we can conduct sport-specific skill tests.

3. Electrocardiogram (ECG) Screening
For children aged 10 and above, especially those involved in strenuous or competitive sports, we offer ECG screenings. This test helps detect any underlying heart conditions that might not be apparent during rest. If your child has a personal or family history of heart conditions, an ECG may be recommended at a younger age.
At Gymnasia SPRI, our goal is to ensure that your child can safely participate in sports and physical activities, improve their athletic performance, and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. We believe in working closely with parents and children, providing guidance, support, and education every step of the way. We look forward to welcoming your family to Gymnasia SPRI and supporting your child's journey towards health and fitness.
