Conference paper


Among other details, ergometers should give vital information such as:
  • Is there coronary heart disease?

  • What safe activity range is left to the patient after a myocardial infarction?

  • What pathological diagnosis can be made under defined physical stress and could this reduce the economic occupation of the patient?
