Abstract

The shortened W170 test [7] is a modified W170 test procedure saving considerable time by using a rapid and almost continuous load increase of 5 W/10s without having significant influence on the test criteria [1–3]. This time-saving method has special significance for large-scale testing in industrial medicine, for example, in the investigation of working capacity in accordance with the German recommendations “G 26, G 30, and G 31” of the Industrial Injuries Insurance Companies [4].
