ErgometerThe bicycle ergometer was designed for use in experiments M171 and M093 and for use in optional exercise by the crewmen. The ergometer allows a crewman to exercise in zero-gravity using either his hands or his feet. It provides a precisely calibrated and, if needed, a programmable standard of work rate for the crewman. The ergometer operates in any of three selectable modes. The set heart rate mode varies the ergometer work rate, as necessary, to achieve and maintain a preselected heart rate. The sequenced heart rate mode is similar to the set heart rate mode except that the heart rate is programmable through five preset levels with a period of time for each level. The set work rate mode delivers a preset work load to the subject.
