• The Model EC-1600 Cateye Ergociser™ function that we have explained up to this point is only the
beginning. Let us move on to an
explanation of other functions.
The six programs of operation
1. Aerobic power
measurement
(physical fitness test)
2. Automatic training
(training at a constant pulse rate)
3. Isopower training
(training at a constant
energy expenditure)
4. Interval training
(exercise + relief periods)
5. Hill profile training
( training by cycling up
mountains )
6. Manual training
(training at any desired
pedal resistance)
• Over a period of 10 minutes, you
will encounter three different levels of pedal resistance. Your pulse
will change in response to the different levels of resistance, and this
change in pulse will be used to calculate your overall fitness level,
also expressed is MOU (VO 2
max). MOU stands for maximum
oxygen uptake. The higher your
overall fitness level, the greater
your endurance.
• You set the pulse rate at which
you want to exercise and the
Model EC-1600 automatically adjusts pedal resistance to maintain
that pulse rate. This is an ideal basic form of aerobic training.
• The work rate or the figure for energy expenditure (watts) shown
on the screen of the Model EC1600 is calculated from pedal resistance (kg·m) and cadence
(rpm).
• By switching back and forth between exercise and relief periods
of varying length, interval training
gives you the kind of program that
professionals use to build their
stamina and energy.
• Pedal resistance changes over
time to simulate the effect of cycling in the mountains. All
changes in pedal resistance are
shown on the screen.
• You choose the pedal resistance
(torque: kg·m), and it stays constant regardless of your pulse rate
or pedal cadence. This is the most
traditional way in which stationary bicycles have been used.
• As you repeat the exercise at a
certain pulse rate and make
progress in your fitness level, you
will be able to create a greater
work intensity under the same
pulse rate. Further, you will be
able to try exercising at a higher
target pulse rate.
• In isopower training, you set the
desired work intensity in watts.
The Model EC-1600 automatically adjusts the pedal resistance
(kg·m) depending on your pedal
cadence (rpm), so as to keep a
constant work rate in watts.
• On the model EC-1600, 3 patterns of
interval training programs are preset
for developing dashing power, speed,
or your stamina respectively, PLUS
one customized pattern for you to input your personal program.
• Your MOU value is compared
with the MOU values of other
people who are the same age and
sex as you. You are given a physical strength number from 1 to 5
depending on how you rank.
PULSE RATE
• These results should give you a
good idea of your own fitness level
and help you to determine what
sort of training program will be
the most effective for you. For information on how to choose a
training program, refer to "Your
strength level and training index"
on page 22~25 in the Operation
section on this booklet.
• This type of training is also called
constant load, and is often used in
cardio-vascular rehabilitation.
Control range:
cadence: ----- 40~100 rpm
wattage: ------ 25~200 watts
Note: If you set your target wattage as under 50 watts, control
limit of cadence (rpm) becomes under 100 rpm.
WORK RATE
TORQUE
TLD-1: dash strength training
(sprint power)
15 seconds exercise followed by a 45 second relief.
TLD-2: speed training
(anaerobic power)
30 seconds of exercise followed by a 60 second relief.
TLD-3: stamina training
(aerobic power)
60 seconds of exercise followed by a 30 second relief.
TLD-4: customized pattern
• Choose one of the above patterns, and
adjust the level of intensity by specifying pedal resistance (torque: kg·m).
• During the exercise period (increased
load portion of interval), you should
pedal with your greatest effort, then
you should pedal slower and lighter
during relief period (lower load portion of interval).
• In the TLD-3 stamina training program, it is advisable to pedal fast
enough in the exercise period to
keep your pulse rate at 60~80% of
the maximum pulse rate for your
age. (Refer to page 22~23)
Upper Pulse Limit Alarm
• For your safety, the upper pulse limit alarm is provided in all the programs of the EC-1600. If your pulse rate exceeds this limit, the buzzer
beeps and the pedal resistance automatically drops to the minimum of
0.5 kg·m.
• If this alarm is activated, the program is suspended at that point and enters the cool down phase, except in "Manual training" program in which
you can continue the exercise using
button to set the desired
torque again.

Purpose of Exercise
Glossary of Terms
• Have you ever been out of breath after climbing a flight of stairs or
after a brisk walk? When we are walking, running and even sleeping,
our body is taking in oxygen and generating energy. Oxygen taken in
by the lungs is sent to the entire body via the circulatory system. If the
function of the circulatory system , i.e. aerobic power, is insufficient,
we may experience being "out of breath" or experience yet other
physical problems.
• Maximum Heart Rate
The heart rate increases according to the intensity of exercise, there is
however a limit. The maximum heart rate that a person can sustain is
called the "maximum heart rate". Generally the heart rate declines as we
get older, this differs however between individuals, and is largely due to
how much one exercises.
• We therefore perform "sports for the heart" (aerobic exercise), which
causes the heart to work a little more a few times a week, thus increasing the oxygen supply to the body via the circulatory system. The purpose of exercise with the Ergociser is to improve both your physical
strength and the functioning of the circulatory system: to improve our
aerobic power.
• Difference Between the Heart Rate and Pulse Rate
Exercise Plan
2)Transmit a sensor light to an earlobe or finger tip, and measure the
pulse count via the subtle changes of the sensor light transmission
caused by the heart beat.
The heart rate is the rate of the heart beat per minute measured by an
electrocardiograph. On the other hand, the pulse rate is measured as follows.
1)By palpating an artery near the skin surface, such as the carotid artery,
measure the pulse count of a blood vessel.
• To effectively perform "sports for the heart" and to improve your
aerobic power, it is necessary to exercise according to your age and
physical fitness. If exercise exceeds your physical fitness level you only
injure your body. On the other hand, if the exercise is insufficient, a
positive effect cannot be expected.
Although the measurement principle and method are different, both the
heart and pulse rates have the same value per minute, and are therefore
regarded as synonymous.
• The Ergociser EC-1600 has 6 types of computer-controlled programs.
One program is the "Aerobic Power Measurement Program". This test
program evaluates your physical fitness level, while the other 5 programs are for actual exercise.
Since earlobes move very little during exercise and are not influenced
very much by physical movement, it is appropriate to use an earlobe to
measure the pulse rate during exercise. The Ergociser EC-1600 therefore
measures the pulse rate by detecting changes in the circulation of the earlobe.
• The "Aerobic Power Measurement Program" evaluates your physical
fitness level so that you can determine the training index and begin
exercise based on the measured result. After exercising for a while
(about 3 months), you become aware of the effect on your body. Test
your physical fitness level again and gradually set a higher training index, thus maintaining and improving your physical fitness level. A special feature of the Ergociser™ EC-1600 is that it combines testing with
exercise.
• Pulse Limit
As a standard maximum heart rate, "220–Age", "204–0.69 x Age", etc.
are used. With the Ergociser EC-1600, a somewhat lower value is used:
"200–Age". This pulse limit allows a person to safely exercise.
• Target Pulse Rate
The pulse rate to maintain during exercise as a target is called the "target
pulse rate". In the "Auto training" program, this pulse rate is automatically maintained. However, even with other programs, always be conscious of your target pulse rate during exercise. Refer to the illustration
on the left.
Aerobic Power Measurement
Exercise Planning
• Exercise Level Based on the Pulse Rate
Exercise
Exercise Frequency and Time
• At least 15 minutes are required for one exercise period, however if
possible a 20 ~ 30 minute period is even better.
• To maintain your present condition, exercise at lease twice a week, 3
times a week would improve your condition even more. The ideal however is to exercise every day or 5 ~ 6 times a week.
22
Note : You could also make up your
target pulse rate more simply by
deducting your age from a certain
figure. For a beginner, for instance, it is recommendable to
start with [160–age (approx.
30~50% depending on your age)],
and gradually proceed to higher
level such as [180–age (approx.
50~70%)]. It would be ideal to
aim at [190–age] eventually.
The pulse rate increases according to the intensity of the exercise. In
other words, the pulse rate during exercise is a barometer for the exercise
level. The exercise level can be determined in percentages by the following formula.
Exercise Level (%) =
Pulse rate during exercise – Pulse rate at rest
x 100
Maximum heart rate – Pulse rate at rest
Therefore, if you want to discern the target of the exercise level from the
pulse rate (target pulse rate), you can calculate as follows.
Target pulse rate = (maximum heart rate – pulse rate at rest)
Exercise Level (%)
x
+ pulse rate at rest
100

Your strength level and training index (2)
Physical Fitness Level
and Training Index
The "Aerobic power measurement" program evaluates your physical fitness
level according to 5 levels, it also evaluates your maximum oxygen uptake
with an estimated value. Based on the result, you can choose your own training index (program type and exercise intensity) from the following.
• Exercise for at least a 15 minute period. If possible a 20 ~ 30 minute period
is even better. Since warm up takes 3 minutes, set your exercise time to
"actual exercise time + 3 minutes".
• Depending on the physical fitness level and purpose, some people may
exercise at a higher pulse limit than the value calculated by age. In such
instances, set the pulse limit slightly higher, being conscious of your own
physical condition.
1 Automatic Training
• In this program, the exercise intensity is set by the target pulse rate (beats
per minute: bpm). Select your target pulse rate from the following table,
based on your age and physical fitness level (PFL) from 1 to 5.
• If you select the stamina aerobic power development pattern (TLD 3),
maintain your pulse rate in the 60 ~ 80% range of the illustration on page 22.
• If the target you select is difficult, reduce the target pulse rate by 10 bpm.
You need not work hard from the beginning, continuing is most important.
TLD 1
• This table is arranged so that even people who have not exercised so much
can benefit. The targets in this table may be too easy for people who exercise often. If you have confidence, increase your target in 10 bpm units,
referring to the target zone in the illustration on page 22.
• Exercise for at least a 15 minute period. If possible a 20 ~ 30 minute period
is even better.
• If overweight control (calorie combustion) is the purpose of the exercise,
set the target pulse rate lower so that you can easily exercise even while
watching TV, but extend your exercise time longer, exceeding 30 minutes.

• MOU is widely used as an index for total physical endurance. MOU indicates the
amount of oxygen one can intake at the limit of their physical work capacity. In
the Ergociser™ EC-1600, MOU is calculated based on the maximum physical
work capacity (PWC max.) explained below, assuming that
1 litre of oxygen corresponds to 5.0 Kcal, and
the human body efficiency rate for a bicycle exercise is 23%

• In the Ergociser™ EC-1600 "Aerobic power measurement" program the
weight of the pedals are changed at 3 levels, and the pulse rate at the end
point of each level is measured. Based on the result, the relationship between the work rate (wattage) and the pulse rate is analyzed by linear
regression. Extend the regression line until reaching the maximum heart
rate (=204–0.69 x age) which is estimated by age. The work rate (wattage)
of this point becomes the maximum physical work capacity.
• PWC max. safely estimates how much exercise is possible at the limit of
physical work capacity, that is, at maximum heart rate without performing actual exercise.

To record your conditions to the
data card, scratch off the appropriate silver part on the back of the
card with a coin etc. This removal
allows the photo scanner in the control unit to detect the position of the
exposed part. Now let's make your
"Data Card."
EXAMPLES OF DATA CARD PROGRAMMING
• Treat the card with care. Do not bend or damp the card.
• Scratch only the necessary part of the silver ink. Otherwise the sensor
will not read out the data.
• Wipe the residue of the scratched silver ink off the card before inserting
the card into the control unit.
• The blank space on the card can be utilized as memo space to enter the
programmed data, user's name etc.
• If you have scratched incorrect data, use "white out" to cover the hole.
If the light doesn't go through the hole that you have covered up, the
card can be used normally.
Note: If "ERROR" appears on the LCD when you insert the card,
check whether any incorrect or unnecessary point has been
scratched out.

when you set exercise conditions and once per second when you are
exercising. Since the contents of the LCD differs according to setting
exercise conditions and during exercise, the content of data output
also differs.

Using chestbelt heart rate sensor
Wireless chestbelt sensor picks up your heart rate
In place of the earlobe pulse sensor, the EC-1600 can also receive
your pulse signal transmitted from a particular type of wireless
chestbelt sensor. The "Wireless Pulse Sensor Kit" (an optional item)
is recommended for the customers who may feel inconvenience in
picking up the pulse rate from the earlobe.

Function of wireless chestbelt sensor
PEDAL
TORQUE
The wireless chestbelt sensor is a simplified and compact electrocardiograph as widely used in hospitals on the same principle. At hospitals, electrodes are attached to several parts of the body, and a cardiogram is determined on the basis of potential differences among those
electrodes. The chestbelt sensor picks up the heart rate more simply
through potential difference between two electrodes built-in there
and in contact with the body.
The pulse data are transmitted to the control unit by radio wave, thus
eliminating inconveniences of handling the sensor cable and offering
concentrated intense training.
