- Pulse will indicate if there is a malfunction of the cardiovascular system;
- Balance reflects the ratio of your ability to mobilize under stress and recover from;
- Load will tell you how effectively the body's protective functions are supported;
- Blood circulation index shows where you are at the moment and what measures should be taken to improve performance.
