8th HRV Symposium Took Place Online
HRV Symposium 2020, organized virtually this year, brought together almost 300 participants and 22 working groups to discuss the latest research topics on heart rate variability.
With almost 300 participants, the HRV online congress lead by congress president Professor Hottenrott from the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany was a great success. In three sessions, 22 working groups presented their results on methods and applications of heart rate variability (HRV) in training and coaching, in stress and pain therapy, in occupational and intensive care medicine as well as in cardiology.
From the sports science point of view, highlights included new findings on the intra-individual variation of heart rate variability over the natural menstrual cycle, the application of the Orthostatic Test in elite endurance athletes and the possible use of the non-linear parameter DFA-1 alpha for threshold determination of endurance performance. In this context, the non-linear dynamics of heart rate regulation to guide and control exercise training was discussed.
