Abstract

Cardiovascular assessment and fitness training are often overlooked in physical rehabilitation. is often overlooked. Many current rehabilitation exercise devices do not allow for the recording and exportation of variables related to cardiovascular fitness.meaningful fashion. Therefore, the purpose of this work was to design, prototype, and validate a Data Logger that measures, records, and exports time, heart rate, and speed data with the commercially available rehabilitation device called the ICARE. Validation involved using the Data Logger device in parallel with Gold Standard devices currently used in research environments for measuring heart rate (TrueOne® 2400 metabolic cart with Polar heart rate monitoring chest strap) and speed (the ICARE's console). Ten healthy individuals without known disability impacting walking or ability to use the ICARE, free from significant conditions impacting walking and exercise participated by training exercised on the ICARE while heart rate and ICARE speed were measured. It was found that the Data Logger can be used to accurately measure, record, and export heart rate (Linear Regression: P < 0.001; R2 = 0.892) and speed (Linear Regression: P < 0.001; R2 = 0.997) data when used with the ICARE.
