What to expect:

  1. Bring a swimsuit and a towel.  Change in the privacy of our dressing room located inside the lab.
  2. Don’t eat anything 2 hours prior.  Eating a big meal within 2 hours before the test may affect your results by up to 1 1/2%, but no more. Therefore, we advise you not to eat within two hours before the test. Working out and drinking water is okay.
  3. You should try to use the restroom and take a shower if possible. Also, please do not have large amounts of makeup or hair gel on when taking the test.
  4. Submerge yourself in water.  You will totally submerge yourself in water for only a few seconds. Simply count from one to five while underwater. You are in complete control.

The water is heated to between 89° and 94°, depending on the season. The water is also chemically treated for cleanliness to meet all local swimming pool and hot tub requirements of the local health department. We also replace the water every night.  We have a private dressing room onboard and for your comfort the lab is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter.

A trained technician will be with you every second of the test. You will have privacy and confidentiality during the entire test, which takes approximately 10 minutes.
