EXER

Prime Contractor UniversitÓ di Udine

EXER (prime contractor UniversitÓ di Udine - Prof. P.Di Prampero / Prof. G.Antonutto) permits to test the biomechanical characteristics of muscle function throughout the whole range of exercise intensities, from low aerobic to maximal explosive ones. Following the specifications of the prime contractor DTM designed and built the new ergometer. The first EXER prototype (designed and built by UniversitÓ di Udine) has been developed in order to test the effects of micro-gravity on the astronauts muscles (MIR and EuroMIR missions). In the foreground of the picture below you can see the prototype of the carbon fibre bicycle developed for the Italian Olympic Team, winner of four World Championships in the category of 100 km trial competition
