• Track your fitness

    Track your fitness

    How can you know if the amount of physical activity you do is sufficient to maintain your fitness? In other words, is it possible to keep records of your activities and your health? The answer is "YES", thanks to a computer programme (TIPPS) developed by experts at the Sports Medicine Research Laboratory of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH). This is an electronic sports diary freely accessible via the Internet, for both beginners and elite athletes. It enables your uploading of daily physical activity data, as well as data on pain, injury and illness.

  • More than a sports diary

    More than a sports diary

    TIPPS allows you to generate statistics on your activity over time (e.g. the number of hours of training session per week, kilometers traveled by walking or running, etc.) and to track your illnesses, pain and possible injuries. In addition, you can monitor your body mass index (BMI) with the TIPPS if you regularly upload your weight and your height.

    TIPPS is different from other "commercial" electronic sports diaries as it allows you to upload a multitude of different sports, i.e. not based solely on endurance sports. In addition, the intensity of the sessions, any pain experienced and any sports injury sustained can be uploaded for each session, leading to a risk factor analysis for health.

  • Uploading a session

  • Signal an injury, pain or illness

    Signal an injury, pain or illness

    Signaling injuries and pains in your personal calendar are of great importance while planning your training sessions.  In the new version of TIPPS, signaling an injury or pain has been simplified and has been based on the OSICS 10.1 (Orchard Sports Injury Classification System).

    Access the injury or pain page, by right-clicking on the calendar ("New injury"/"New pain") or by signaling a pain during the upload of your training or competition session. 

    - Click on the location of your injury or pain on the figure.
    - Click on the injury mechanism on the parent menu.
    - You can detail the information of your injury, if known, in the specific and details tabs. 
    - Check the injury date and estimate a return date. 
    - Check or inform the context, sport and mecanism of the injury.
    - Click "Save & close" or "Save & New" if you had a 2nd injury on the same day.

  • Monitoring of physical activity

    Monitoring of physical activity

    On the calendar page to the bottom right of the screen you will find a chart of your number of hours of physical activity per week, the last 7 weeks being displayed. Further information on activity volumes, load, distances will be visible in "Statistics".

  • Follow your body mass index (BMI)

    Follow your body mass index (BMI)

    You can monitor your body mass index. Beforehand, you must obviously upload your weight several times, for example once a week (preferably in the morning on an empty stomach and after a bowel movement). Click the "Body measurements" tab in "Health". You will find charts showing the evolution of your weight and your BMI.

  • Health-Index


    The Health-Index is calculated based on your activities during the last 7 days and enables you to check whether you have reached the minimum of the international recommendations for physical activity. All activities that last 10 minutes or less, as well as those with an intensity inferior to 3 will not be taken into consideration for the calculation of the Health-Index. Your load will thus be calculated by the product of the intensity and total duration of the activity. You should reach at least 150 minutes of physical activities with moderate intensity, or 75 minutes with vigorous intensity, or a mix of both, per week.

  • Risk indicators

    Risk indicators

    Risk indicators take into account all the details you encode to warn the athlete in case of high injury risks. There are 7 different indicators, that indicate through green, yellow or red dots if you are exposed to higher risk of sustaining an injury: 

    - Consecutive sessions at high intensity

    - Consecutive days without rest

    - Repetitive pains

    - Current injury length

    - Recurrent injury

    - Participation in a competition while being injured

    - Concussion 


  • Coaches: Follow your athletes

    Coaches: Follow your athletes

    Coaches, sports instructors, physiotherapists and doctors have the possibility to follow (more information) their team and/or athletes. They can coordinate training and intensity personally and monitor their athletes.

    It is possible to create own groups, custom reports, have individual and global looks on the training program, rating of perceived exertion and possible injuries, pains or illnesses of their athletes.
