Physiology

The physiological equipment of the department Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy consists of

  • A Portable Cortex system for breath-by-breath cardiopulmonary exercise testing, including VO2 max.
  • A pocket-spiro MPM100 for a simple noninvasive device for the measurement of Maximum Inspiratory and Expiratory mouth pressure (MIP/MEP).
  • An eBike cycle ergometer to test VO2max, anaerobic capacity and power.
  • A treadmill (HP Cosmos) to evaluate exercise capacity.
  • Oxygen to see: a diagnostic device for non-invasive determination of oxygen supply in micro-circulation of blood perfused tissues.
  • A Holter ECG-monitoring device (Schiller MT200) to monitor ECG in rest and during exercise, with the capacity to evaluate heart rate variability (HRV).
  • Uroflow EMG (Laborie):  The latest in a line of reliable, standalone, cost-effective and easy to use measurement of urinary flow.

We also have a range of other testing equipment including Polar heart monitors, blood pressure monitors, lactate measurements,  hand grip dynamometers, algometers and range of body composition equipment including skinfold callipers and a bio-electrical impedance.
