Validity and Reliability of the VM Pro

Introduction

This study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of the VM Pro when compared to a VacuMed metabolic simulator. The VacuMed simulator has been validated with the industry-standard Douglas bag method and has been used to validate popular VO2 analyzers such as the Cosmed K5. The simulator’s design is based on concepts discussed by Huszczuk and Wasserman.
