Geratherm Respiratory® made in Germany
The Ergostik delivers reliable results for a wide range of performance
The Ergostik is a powerful cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) device used in a wide variety of fields, from simple fitness testing and sports medicine to cardio-respiratory differential diagnosis of dyspnea and perioperative diagnostics. The powerful BLUE CHERRY® diagnostic platform facilitates evaluation with flexible reports and useful diagnostic tools.
Ergospirometry - cardio-pulmonary differential diagnostics
The cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) enhances the classic stress test by measuring ventilation and metabolic parameters. Because this combination provides a more complete picture of the cardio-respiratory system, it increases the diagnostic value significantly, especially when it comes to systemic diseases or comorbidities. However, it also offers other clinically relevant information, such as VO2max and the anaerobic threshold, which are useful in diagnostics from preoperative assessment to performance diagnostic analysis.
Light-weight flow sensor
Once again patient comfort was paramount during the design process of the Ergostik with its light and robust flow sensor, the Ergoflow: The face mask has less weight, improving patient comfort during the test procedure. As well as being one of the lightest flow sensors available the Ergoflow has no moving parts and no electronics making it incredibly robust and less prone to damage suffered by many flow sensors.
Intelligent determination of thresholds
The powerful BLUE CHERRY® software suite for pulmonary function diagnostic assists in the calculation of the aerobic/anaerobic thresholds VT1 and VT2. An algorithm and a large number of stored models help to reliably determine the individual threshold values. The thresholds and defined cut offs, such as the cut off for oxygen uptake, are important prognostic and diagnostic values. In addition, the thresholds enable the creation of targeted training plans for each patient (before and after a medical intervention). Individual training plans can be modified and new plans created something that is particularly useful for athletes in training allowing the creation of multiple endurance and strength training plans for each individual.
