Energy Expenditure: Exercise Testing

Treadmill testing equipment measures volume of oxygen consumption and volume of carbon dioxide output by placing a mouthpiece or face mask over the mouth during exercise.  VO2 sub-max with ECG and VO2 max with ECG are used to determine maximum heart rate, power output, caloric expenditure, and estimation of lactate threshold.  Staff can devise specific testing methods to meet protocol needs.
