For the first time ever, researchers used VO2 Master to collect and measure MET data from outrigger canoe paddlers. Working with 60 participants ranging from recreational to competitive paddlers, researchers at The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa gathered in-depth insights into the volume of calories or energy expenditure burned during these sessions. Lead Researcher Simone Schmid explained that "Establishing the corresponding METs will be instrumental in demonstrating the scientific benefits of paddling, including for paddlers who have physical disabilities."

The VO2 Master Story

VO2 Master started as a conversation between a young computer programmer and a physician with a passion for coaching endurance athletes, using physiologic testing to help them reach new heights. Peter was hungry for more of a challenge than the University Computing Science Department could offer. Andrew was frustrated with cumbersome equipment, and the poor user-interface of the table top VO2 monitors he had been using for over 7 years. Together, they dreamed of an assessment tool that could truly capture an athlete’s physiologic responses to real world situations. The goal was to close the massive gap between the static University based labs and the athletic experience on the road, the trails, the track, and beyond. The concept of the first portable, wireless, VO2 monitoring device the world had ever seen was born.

We are now set to start a sports testing revolution that will see athletes and coaches have the ability to visualize oxygen consumption data on their smartphone or tablet, using a patented technology that has eliminated the need for tubes, wires and expensive equipment previously confined to the laboratory. Athletes are now able to step out of the lab, and back onto the field, or ice surface, or into the trails, or onto the road, while still providing lab-grade data to their coaches.

The revolution of sports performance testing has begun.

The VM Pro sends live data directly to any iOS or Android portable device, for real-time analysis. The app also allows for the collection of data from other Bluetooth enabled devices and for downloading of data to third-party analytical software platforms.rms.pensive equipment previously confined to the laboratory.
