Making Physiology Happen


HEK-TA-300 Human Exercise Physiology Teaching Kit


The HEK-TA-300 has been replaced with the HEK-PEAK.

iWorx HEK-TA-300 with the GA-300 Gas Analyzer 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-TA-300 includes teacher developed courseware for teaching the concepts of exercise physiology and human physiology.

The HEK-TA-300 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
  • as well as the measurement of blood pressure, cardiograms, myograms, encephalograms, reflex responses, heart rate, spirometry, and more.
