Abstract:

A method for measuring changes in the maximum speed of walking on a treadmill is described. The method involves the use of a titration schedule in which the subject is forced to monitor continuously his estimate of maximum capability and to adjust the velocity of the treadmill in accordance with this estimate. The results show the method to be a stable technique for measuring performance decrement as a function of continued heavy muscular work. Author
