Exercise has been proven to be very helpful for maintaining and promoting human health. However, recent research showed that too much or inappropriate exercise may hurt human health. In order to maintain and promote human health, appropriate amount of exercise should be performed according to physical condition and appropriate exercise prescription. This paper proposes an integrated system for body shape analysis (BSA) and physical fitness test (PFT) - HIMS, which consists of 5 data acquisition modules for analyzing physiological status, an exercise load control module, a data processing module and a main control module. The data acquisition modules are integrated to carry out the tests required for exercise prescription in a systematic way. The parameters obtained from the tests include cardio-respiratory endurance, muscle strength, muscle endurance, agility, power, blood pressure at rest, blood pressure at recovery, body fat and body weight. So we can measure 7 kinds of parameters fast and conveniently on one system
