The perfect Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing solution for swimming.

CORTEX enables you to conduct innovative tests of performance physiology in water using METASWIM which was explicitly developed for swimmers.

Swimmers now benefit from efficient performance diagnostics too. Not only in endurance sport such as running, biathlon or bicycling, top trainers and sports scientists rely on the detailed results of mobile Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) systems to precisely determine an athlete’s performance and to set up individually optimised training schedules.

Especially designed snorkels enable it.

Thanks to specifically designed snorkels for back- stroke and free-style, physical fitness and performance can be examined there where the athlete is in his or her element: in the flow channel, in the pool or in open water. High wearing comfort, spray water protection and active saliva removal ensure the athlete’s mobility and correct measuring results. During the perfor- mance test, the proven CORTEX telemetric device sends precise data wirelessly to the MetaSoft® Studio software and this way guarantees an exact analysis of physical parameters. Even the heart rate can be measured reliably during workout.

Whatever it is that drives your test persons:
Extend their limits using our spiroergometric solutions.

As is true for any technical application, limits to medical measuring technology will arise again and again. The challenges might be special environmental conditions such as extreme temperature, dust or humidity. Special locations such as ice deserts, out- er space stations and maybe also sitting in a Formula 1 racing car may set limits to standard solutions.

But why stop here? It is exactly these challenges that motivate us, CORTEX, to overcome technical limits. Universities, research institutions and scientists need individual solutions that function well even under exceptional environmental conditions. New fields of research often require adjustment and upgrading of research equipment.




If you reach your limits and have special wishes and ideas, we would be happy to help you find a solution. Together we will work at extending your limits.
