Health Status and Cardiovascular Stress of Veteran Soccer Players
Health Status and Cardiovascular Stress of Veteran Soccer Players

This study shall provide missing descriptive data on health status of veteran players and potential preventive effects of soccer at an age of 40 to 60 years. The investigation represents a cross-sectional examination of cardiovascular parameters and metabolic stress induced by training and competition. Additionally, orthopedic and other medical risks are to be revealed, and options should be developed to minimize these risks, e.g. by preventive measures included in training or rule modifications.

Facing the demographic trends in Western societies there is an expected increase in interest in soccer for males between 40 and 60 years. Positive effects of such an activity on health can be suspected based on some studies and analogous conclusions. However, no sufficient database is available yet. Moreover, the range of cardiovascular risk factors or pre-existing diseases for this specific population is not known.
