(2009) Accuracy of the Velotron Ergometer
and SRM Power Meter.
Muscle function which includes MVC (males 28.9 [+ or -] 5.4, females 25.9 [+ or -] 4.8), work done using Mosso's ergograph (males 2792 [+ or -] 1445, female 2402 [+ or -] 896) and bicycle ergometer
(male 3584 [+ or -] 1345, female 2948 [+ or -] 1156) were significantly higher in males when compared to females (P < 0.05).
Registration of ergometer
kinematics parameters in contact-stroke -momentum by Dartfish software, reveals the duration of contact time and impulse preceding detachment and entry flight path upward (Iagar, 2010).
The tests were performed on a mechanical cycle ergometer
(Monark[R] 828E; Valburg, Sweden).
The knee swinging ergometer
model is introduced to allow stroke patient perform continuous FES-induced knee exercise as well as to avoid early muscle fatique.
RESULT: The results clearly showed more energy expenditure per unit time in case of step test, when compared to cycle ergometer
. As weight increases energy expenditure per unit time increases remarkably in the case of step-test, but in cycle ergometer
there was very slight increase.
On each ergometer
, subjects performed a continuous incremental test to volitional exhaustion.
The test is practical, not time-consuming and independent of special equipment like cycle ergometer
, treadmill or dry air source.
After consultation with a machinist at our medical center, all of the above design criteria were met and the calf ergometer
was designed and constructed.
VICIOUS CYCLE: The Ergometer
will provide a tough workout
Assessment of myocardial functional parameters by echocardiography, quality of life using the SF-36 questionnaire and functional capacity using cycle ergometer
testing was performed.
In this study, researchers used an arm ergometer
, a tabletop device akin to bicycle pedals operated with the arms rather than the legs.
