Yes and this may interests all Fit Mate users.
If you run your own test ideas with your own protocol you run the equipment on manual.
Remember , that you have some time restriction on the manual mode as well as you can collect 2000 breath. So an average of 40 breath you will have a time limit of 50 min and in a normal step test during a classical lactate test with 3 minutes steps you will have unlikely a time problem. If you run a FaCT CLR as you plan you best restart the Fit Mate at the same time you take the first time your blood ( end of the step test.
Easy to do as you push okay for the stop , 1 for confirm and than go back to the start . It will take you 30 seconds and you are okay again. Yes stop the person for this 30 seconds complete and watch what the Heart rate is doing .
Than go to the 50 % performance of the last step always in the first step and watch the HR trend.
I will soon show you the new protocol on here as well and how you run the second part in a full FaCT CLR.
You will run it different than the old version you had from 15 years back as you have with the Fit Mate and the Physio flow much nicer live info on the recovery and can now easy control the second part with very little guess work but actually a "protocol " .
This will allow much more people to use the ideas and test it out now.
Performance in manual mode.
Use on the top of the screen you have running during a test the word load ( no 3 ) and you punch in at every new step the load you have in wattage or speed and than you can move it on your lap top later and use the Fit Mate excel sheet for any graphic you like to produce.
You even can take the Physio Flow datas and move it in the Fit Mate excel sheet and you can graph for example Stroke volume with VO2 datas or respiratory frequency with SV or even better TV and SV. There are very interesting trends you will see in each individual client you have.
I work on the case study we did with Graham and Duncan and Frank and I am in the last stages for many graphs and it is very interesting to see the lactate trend comparing with other ( respiratory and cardiac trends )
Please come back on here as well as many Fit Mate users and Physio Flow users can benefit from this open discussion.
