15 SELF-TESTING RECORDS: CONSIDERATIONS FOR COMPARISONS

To be able to make reliable comparisons between the results of different self-tests, you should always perform them under the same conditions in terms of local fatigue (ideally none), skin shape and room temperature and humidity. All these elements can affect the results of the tests, becoming more relevant as the edge on which you perform them gets smaller. Therefore, we suggest:

  • avoiding any activity related to climbing during the 24-48 hours prior to self-testing, preventing any level of local fatigue and your skin to wear away;
  • checking the room environment conditions (temperature and humidity) to be able to interpret the results in relation to the context. For example, if you obtain the same values as in the previous self-test, but under worst temperature and humidity conditions (hotter and moister), this may clearly show an improvement at the physical level, even if the indicators have remained unchanged. This is why the App offers you the possibility to enter this data during self-testing, displaying it later in the self-testing records.
