Pedal ergometer (MR_PEDALO) for a defined stress examination of the lower leg muscles

The device will be operated by a modular composed measuring station combined with a dynamic nuclear spin tomograph, a software to analyse the measurement of the blood cir-culation, the measuring apparatus of the device and a software to analyse the muscle acit-vity. With the aid of the pedal ergometer the force, path and time measurement of the al-ternating foot flexion and extension can be realized. The result is an increased blood circula-tion which is stress induced. With the power and the path the work can be calculated and automatically correlated with the blood flow measurement of the nuclear spin tomograph.

For the first time it is possible to carry out a standarized stress examination of single parts of the lower leg muscles.
