Abstract : The increasing prevalence of chronic non-communicable diseases contribute to earlier disability and frailty onset over the course of life in industrialized western countries. This process applies also to diseases of the cardiovascular system. To counteract and to increase the healthy span of life, the preservation or improvement of physical fitness components (endurance capacity, muscle strength, and neuromuscular function) are thought to be essential elements. The COmPLETE project first time comprehensively measures these functional components in a stratified healthy population sample between 20 and 100 years (COmPLETE-Health) and calculate the difference in adaptive capacity to patients with heart failure (COmPLETE-Heart).
