The maximal oxygen uptake (V̇O 2 peak) test is an approved pre-operative examination tool, in a clinical setting: Both V̇O 2 peak and anaerobic threshold indicate a patient's physiological tolerance for major surgery and post-operative mortality, with cycle ergometry being routinely used for V̇O 2 peak tests in clinical settings, in many European countries. Nevertheless, the opportunities to assess populations with restricted mobility of the lower limbs are limited, as alternative methods (such as an arm-crank test protocol) to assess V̇O …
