Cross-sectional study with using e-Celsius ingestible capsules from bodycap

12.12.2018 09:30

The aim of the study: To characterise the core temperature response and power output profile of elite male and female cyclists during the 2016 UCI Road World Championships. With the pill of Bodycap you can determine the core temperature of the body.
The core temperature was recorded for cyclists during the Team Time Trial (TTT), the Individual Time Trial (ITT) and the Road Race (RR). Performance and heart rate were taken from individual cycling computers.
Core temperature was recorded using e-Celsius ingestible capsules and e-Viewer receivers (BodyCap, Caen, France). The capsule was provided to the cyclist the day before the race with instructions to swallow it immediately on waking. Data (precision 0.1C, 1 recording every 30 s) were stored within the capsule and downloaded immediately after the race. Power output and
heart rate were extracted from individual cycling computers after the events. data analyses Data were coded in Wizard (V.1.9.13, Evan Miller) for non-parametrical analyses. Average absolute power output and heart rate, as well as peak core temperature were extracted from each file.
