Specific exercises pertaining to the type of sport are then selected which exactly meet a person’s deficits. Networking of experts One of the major strengths of Ortema is the high level of integrated business areas. Highly qualified specialists, including ortho- paedic technicians, surgical truss makers, sport scientists, physiotherapists and ergo- therapists, work together hand in hand. This is further facilitated by their close involvement in medical treatment and the geographical proximity to the Orthopaedic Clinic Mark- gröningen. This cooperation encourages the transfer of knowledge between these spe- cialists, the doctors in the clinic, as well as athletes from different sports. Thus, Ortema can provide comprehen- sive solutions in the field of prevention – even after the event. Performance diagnosis A recent Ortema business field is medi- cal fitness and includes some interesting of- fers for motorsport enthusiasts. Not only for professionals, but in particular for amateurs. Planning is the basis of success – and this also applies to training in motorsports. But, how to develop a sensible course of training when the initial situation is not yet defined? This is where the so-called performance diagnosis comes into play. Using numerous indicators, the Ortema experts determine the individual training condition of the per- son. This is based on a health profile result- ing from extensive evaluation by a specialist in sport medicine and personal consulta- tion. Spiroergonometry provides information on the so-called anearobic threshold.
