Making Physiology Happen


HEK-PEAK Human Exercise Physiology Teaching Kit



iWorx HEK-PEAK includes all of the components necessary to measure oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production in resting and exercising subjects, as well as the measurement of blood pressure, cardiograms, myograms, encephalograms, reflex responses, spirometry and more. The HEK-PEAK includes teacher developed courseware for teaching the concepts of exercise physiology and human physiology.

The HEK-PEAK is suitable for recording and measuring:

  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
  • Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
  • Respiratory Exchange Ratio (RER)
  • Sedentary to light activity VO2 and VCO2
  • VO2 max
  • Anaerobic Threshold (AT)/ Ventilatory Threshold (VT)
  • as well as the measurement of blood pressure, cardiograms, myograms, encephalograms, reflex responses, heart rate, spirometry, and more.
