Oxygen consumption in industrial tasks assisted by an upper limb exoskeleton

July 3, 2020 Authors: David Martínez Pascual Tutor/s: Nicolás M. García Aracil Summary “In view of the results obtained, oxygen consumption would indicate a decrease in fatigue under the task performed with the exoskeleton. Likewise, the results obtained for ventilation, tidal volume and… Read the story

Selective respiratory parameters and training of female tennis players

June 22, 2020 Authors: Pacholek, Jakub Advisor: Kočíb, Tomáš Summary “The respiratory parameters of our twin players were average compared to the general population and below average compared to elite players. Laboratory and field results showed different results of VO2max.” Complete Article: the story
