Introducing the K5
K5, the 4th generation of the most popular family of wearable metabolic systems, is a device designed for the measurement of metabolic parameters (VO2, VCO2, Ventilation, HR, energy expenditure, and more...) either in the field or in laboratory.
More than 27 years and 2000 units sold worldwide have been passed since COSMED introduced the first generation of compact metabolic systems. The result of such an experience has been carefully implemented in a complete new piece of technology incorporating latest design in terms of mechanics, electronics and software providing researchers, sport professionals and clinical users new limits in exploring human exercise physiology.
Design & Wearability
Rugged (IP54) weather sealed body
Single-body device (battery inside) reduces weight (<800 g) and simplifies set-up operations
3.5” LCD with resistive touch-screen
Li-ion “smart battery”, 4h life, replaceable
Integrated camera-mount-screw-thread for easy mounting on several supports
USB-device port for both PC communication, real-time testing and data download
New adjustable harness design (2 sizes: adult and pediatric) provides great comfort and ergonomy during any test
Accuracy & Reliability
IntelliMET® (Patent), first metabolic system with dual gas sampling technology (mix chamber and breath by breath), user selectable
Highly-linear and rapid response O2 (GFC) and CO2 (NDIR) sensors
Automatic verification of all main hardware components (sensor status, response time, humidity, pneumatics, etc.) accessible with a single keyboard button
Simplified calibration procedure with automatic gas and delay calibration
Standard Bluetooth 2.1 for wireless data transmission to PC (range 10m line of sight)
Optional Long Range Bluetooth 2.1 for wireless data transmission to PC (extended range up to >1000m)
Integrated ANT+ engine for seamless integration with wireless sport sensors (up to 8 channels). HR profile available as standard. Additional profiles are optional (bike power meters, foot speed and distance sensors, etc). For full list of compatible products: click here
Bluetooth 4.0 (Low Energy) for integration with other wireless devices such as SpO2, ECG monitors, etc.
Navigation & Motion
Integrated 10 Hz Differential GPS (SBAS), with an accuracy of 2.5m in position and 0.1m/s in speed. Accurate measurement of altitude and grade by using the internal barometric pressure sensor coupled with GPS readings.
3D Accelerometer ±8 g range. Provides information concerning cadence, etc.
3D Gyroscope (±2000°/s range) improves accuracy of the accelerometer and provides trunk position.
3D Magnetometer/Compass (±1000µT range) provides direction.
