Medical screening

If you participate in the HandbikeBattle it is important that you train and participate responsibly. In order to reduce any health risks, a medical screening (inspection) is mandatory.

Sportvitalit
In connection with GDPR legislation, we organise the registration and exchange of medical data in accordance with the rules in force. We work together with Sportvitalitfor this. They have experience with the organisation of medical examinations for sports medical advisory centres.

Sportvitalit has built a system for us. The participants and the screening physicians receive login credentials and instructions for this via e-mail.

The participants enter their own data via Sportvitalit. The screening physicians check all data and they also enter the data of the medical screening (the medical passport) and the exercise test. Eventually, a final report rolls out, which states whether the participant has been approved to participate in the HandbikeBattle.

Screening of team participants
The medical screening and the inspection for the classification of the team participants are arranged by the test customers and contacts of the teams. The participant fills in (medical) information (formerly Lausanne declaration) online (via Sportvitalit) and the screening doctor checks this and complements this. When completing Sportvitalit, use the instructions for participants: print out the document and keep it handy.

We also made an instruction for the screening doctors to fill out Sportvitalit. They may also use the manual and the brief description of the screening process.

Screening of individual participants
The medical screening and the inspection for the classification of the individual participants shall take place shortly after registration on 1-1-2021.
The participant receives login credentials for Sportvitalit via e-mail and fills in the (medical) information (formerly Lausanne statement) online. When completing Sportvitalit, use the instructions for participants: print out the document and keep it handy.
At the end of the questionnaire in Sportvitalit you can indicate where the medical screening should take place. There are a number of locations scattered across the country where this is possible. The details will be released by itself if you have been raffled and have completed your medical records. You make an appointment for the screening.

The screening doctor checks your Sportvitalit file and further complements it. We also made an instruction for the screening doctors to fill out Sportvitalit. They may also use the manual and the brief description of the screening process.
The screening doctor uses the medical decision tree. If you did an effort test after July 1, 2018, it is still valid for the HandbikeBattle of 2021. You have to take the report of that to medical screening. If you already have a valid report of an effort test, you still need to go to medical screening!

The entire procedure for the registration and medical screening of individual participants is described in a separate document.

Contact medical team HandbikeBattle and screening doctors
There is close contact between the medical team of the HandbikeBattle (the medical guidance during the competition)and the screening doctors. The screening doctor signs responsible participation in the HandbikeBattle. If in doubt, a medical team doctor will make contact with the screening doctor.
