FitQuest is unsuitable for users with any of the following contraindicators:
- Implanted Devices (e.g. pacemakers, defibrillators, prosthetics, etc).
- Health Conditions (e.g. heart problems, respiratory issues, conditions aggravated by exercise, etc)
If you have any conditions such as: heart problems, pregnancy, respiratory issues or any other conditions that may be aggravated by exercise DO NOT use FitQuest without first consulting your doctor.
Always seek professional and medical advice before undertaking any changes to your fitness regime, training or diet. We also ask that you follow all instructions given by the device, whether written or verbal.
The information we provide (in our results, applications and reports for example) is intended as a guide only (not a clinical assessment). Targets are based on averages for individuals matching your age range and gender. You should always discuss personalised targets with your doctor, trainer and dietician.
FitQuest is unsuitable for users with implanted devices fitted (e.g. pacemakers, defibrillators, prosthetics, etc).
Aside from the physical nature of the measurement process, FitQuest's electrical signals may adversely interfere with implanted devices causing damage/harm to the device.
Implanted devices may also interfere with FitQuest's ability to measure you accurately.
FitQuest is unsuitable for pregnant users.
The Fitness Assessment is contraindicated due to the physical nature of the measurement process.
Body Composition, whilst safe for pregnant users, is also contraindicated as the results would be invalid and inaccurate.
FitQuest uses BIA technology when estimating body composition. This process passes a small electrical signal through the body at varying frequencies and measures the electrical properties at those frequencies (resistance, reactance and phase angle). Different tissue types within the body have differing electrical characteristics and this allows the level of fat/muscle/hydration to be estimated from the electrical measurement.
The electrical signal passed is extremely small and completely safe for humans (including unborns). However, pregnancy changes the electrical characteristics of the body and the assumptions upon which the fat/muscle/hydration estimates are predicated (only minimal research has been conducted on such changes).
These changes mean FitQuest is unable to estimate meaningful results from the electrical measurements obtained from pregnant users. We expect the error levels in the results would most likely increase as the pregnancy progresses and the fetus develops. Therefore, any trends would likely reflect the increased error levels rather than reflecting any changes in body composition accurately. The only valid measurement would be the weight of mother and baby.
FitQuest is unsuitable for users with any health conditions; particularly those with heart problems, respiratory issues or conditions aggravated by exercise.
Users recovering from illness or surgery should also not use FitQuest.
