... K5, wear it!
K4 b², the first “breath by breath” portable metabolic system with integrated GPS
K4, the first portable metabolic system (VO2, VCO2) with dynamic mixing chamber
K2, the first portable metabolic system for field testing (VO2 only)
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 28 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, user replaceable
Integrated camera-mount-screw-thread for easy mounting on several supports
USB port for both PC communication, real-time testing and data download
New adjustable harness design (2 sizes: adult and pediatric) for great comfort and ergonomy
Accuracy & Reliability
Patented dual gas sampling system (IntelliMET®) able to provide both micro-dynamic mixing chamber and breath by breath gas exchange measurements
Highly-linear and rapid response O2 (GFC) and CO2 (NDIR) sensors
4th generation opto-electronic reader and high performance turbine flowmeter (0.08-16 l/s Flow Range)
Rapid automatic verification “CHECK” of main hardware components
Simplified calibration procedures directly managed by the unit (gas calibration, delay calibration, CO2 real zero with scrubber, flowmeter)
