Vienna Test System, a modern computer test system for measuring the psychic functions of athletes

We have increasingly modern measurement tools available to test the psychic functions of athletes, including the Vienna Test System. The question is, what mental functions can be measured with this system?

The long-term sustained attention shows how long an athlete can concentrate and what periods of time during a competition when their focus is sharp or their attention is decreasing.
The game intelligence, peripheral perception and exploration of spatial-visual memory support the selection of the right position for team sports. Often, a well-chosen position can improve an athlete’s performance in a fierce competitive situation.
The stress tolerance shows how well a competitor can perform under pressure, which is the basis for proper athletic performance. Based on the results obtained, it is also possible to set the individual optimal level of arousal.
These tests can be available from the age of 11, supporting the selection process. Another benefit is that athletes, parents and coaches can also get feedback on areas for development.
In addition, the Vienna Test System is suitable for further measurements from the age of 15, anticipációs képességeket including anticipation skills (reading of the game) and personality traits. As the athletes get older, we can get an increasingly complex picture of their mental capacity with the help of the Vienna Test System.

Lecture on the examination of the psychic functions of youth footballers at this year's Hungarian Sports Science Congress

As a psychologist, I have been working with the Vienna Test System for three years. In the course of my practical work, I have examined the mental functions of more than 300 athletes so far, giving feedback to athletes, parents and coaches alike. I recently reported on my Vienna Test System research with adolescent footballers at the Hungarian Sports Science Congress. Measurements are possible in Budapest and Szeged, among others, appointments can be made by calling + 36706329643.
