ECG Electro Cardiogram Exhibition by Hands On!

ECG

Put yourself to the test in this revealing look at fitness.

Visitors test their cardio fitness in a stair-stepping activity to gain a first-hand understanding of the connection between heart rate and activity level. Visitors first measure their resting heart rate. In an unusual twist on this experience, the read-out monitor includes an anatomically accurate, life-size simulation of a beating heart that pumps in time with the visitor's measured heartbeat, also shown in an ECG readout. Visitors then step up and down a set of stairs and measure their heart rate again. This time, the virtual heart beats at a quicker pace. This highly visual interpretation of cardio fitness helps the visitor make connections between effort and the internal workings of the body.
