A Conversion of Load Intensity from a Bicycle Ergometer to a Treadmill
In the field of stress testing to evaluate the general physical condition and working capacity of a subject (normal or patient) and in the field of training and conditioning normal persons and athletes and reconditioning patients in the process of rehabilitation, we use mostly two kinds of ergometers — treadmills and bicycle ergometers. Each group of ergometers has its own characteristics and advantages which influence investigators and practitioners in their choice of equipment.
