Fitness generally refers to physical and mental well-being. It's about a condition that makes us so efficient in everyday life that we can withstand stress (see Wikipedia definition).


An important indicator of a person's fitness is their resting heart rate. Resting heart rate is the frequency of the heartbeat when the body is at rest.

Adults have an average resting heart rate of 60 to 80 heart beats per minute (BPM). Semi-professional athletes have values of 60, while top athletes have values around 40 BPM. As you get older, your resting heart rate increases again. For seniors it is between 80 and 85 BPM. Newborns, on the other hand, have values around 130 BPM, teenagers around 85 beats per minute.

The biozoom scanner enables the measurement of the resting heart rate.

For a correct measurement, it is necessary that it is not carried out immediately after physical exertion and that the test subject has rested before the measurement.

The resting heart rate is influenced by many factors. These include, for example, age, gender, ambient temperature, time of day, fitness, caffeine consumption, alcohol.


The accuracy of the pulse measurement was tested by Prof. Dr. Loew validated in a scientific study. Prof. Loew is professor of psychosomatic medicine at the University Hospital Regensburg and chief physician of the psychosomatic department there as well as chief physician at the Donaustauf Clinic.
