Testing and measurement are the means of collecting information upon which subsequent performance evaluations and decisions are made. In the analysis, we need to bear in mind the factors that may influence the results. Enter the wheel "Diameter" centimetres , "rpm" and then select the 'Calculate' button.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity of the predicted VO2 max from the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram, using the cycle ergometer as the sole exercise mode and following the recommended submaximal test protocol. In addition, two sets of age correction factors were compared for accuracy. Although virtually identical SEE and r were found when applying the von Dobeln age correction factors, a significantly lower predicted mean was found p less than.
These results suggest that the Astrand age correction factors should be used in conjunction with the Astrand-Ryhming nomogram, especially when classifying subjects into various fitness classifications.

Astrand 6-minute Cycle Test
It is low risk, easily administrated and requires neither advanced laboratory equipment nor expertise knowledge in work physiology. The test is suitable in situations when a maximal test is not feasible, for example in health evaluations. The objective of the 6-minute submaximal cycle test is to monitor the VO 2 max, which is beneficial for athletes as well as for medical rehabilitation as patients do not need to perform at maximum capacity. Based around the same principle and with modern technology, Monark Exercise is one of the leading manufacturers of ergometers for testing and training. The bikes can handle extreme loads and are the obvious choice amongst athletes with tough demands on their training and for researchers in sports medicine. For medical use, the product range is especially beneficial as it can be controlled by different ECG systems. The Astrand Test is a submaximal cycle ergometer aerobic fitness test best suited in rehabilitation and health purposes.
