For exercise research, we developed enclosed treadmill and VO2/VCO2
metabolic computer for measuring oxygen consumption and CO2 production
during exercise of rats or mice. Each animal compartment has its individual
exercise belt and its speed is precisely controlled. To entice animal to run
each lane is equipped with special electric shocker. Alternative air puff or
cold water stimulus are also available. Multiple animals can be exercised and
measured at the same time. Belts inclination is variable to adjust animal work.
