FAQ

During Eccentric or negative ergometry you have to resist against a workload produced by a motor instead of an electromagnet, see article prof. Folgering: Effects of positive and negative exercise on ventilatory CO2 sensitivity.
During heartrate controlled cycling or running, you can determine a maximum heartrate limit. When this limit is reached, the ergometer/treadmill will adjust the workload/speed so the heartrate will stay more or less stable. You can perform a HR controlled test with the standard controller. You can program HR controlled protocols with the controller of the Valiant, Corival, Angio and Excalibur (more heartrate limits in one protocol (per step)), and the LEM (multi control) software module.
The 0-Watt start-up system is an option for the Corival and Excalibur ergometers. It offers the opportunity to start the ergometer at a preset pedal speed (30-80 rpm). The number of revolutions is increased from 0 to the desired rpm by means of a motor drive. With this option there is no energy-loss for the test subject due to the start-up phase. The motor has to be built-in in the ergometer during manufacturing. Example: before starting the test the ergometer must be set at the lowest workload (7 watt), or a protocol must be selected with a first step of 7 Watt (max 10 Watt). When pushing the 0-watt button, the number of revolutions is increased to the required pedal speed. Release the button and the ergometer will have a workload of 7 watt. The test subject does not have to overcome the initial resistance of the braking mechanism and can start the test with the lowest workload at the required rpm in the normal rpm-independent mode.
