Cardio Respiratory Fitness (CRF) is a strong predictor of mortality. Because of this the American Heart Association recommends that ideally all patients should have measured CRF with a maximal effort test on a regular basis. However, this is not practically possible. Seismocardiography (SCG) is a measure of the vibration produced by the beating heart, measured on the sternum. This study investigates the correlation between amplitudes in the SCG and VO2-max from 17 females and 9 males. All amplitudes investigated correlated significantly with VO2-max.
