We recently had the pleasure of installing 5 x Monark 828E cycle ergometers for patient testing and rehabilitation at the Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital. The hospital provides specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology and respiratory medicine. It is the largest single site specialist heart and chest hospital in the country.
The physiotherapy department at the hospital provides therapies to help speed up patient recovery. This can be from surgery, heart and lung conditions, as well as, rehabilitation following heart attack.
The five Monark 828E cycle ergometers for rehabilitation are for use in their physiotherapy and exercise physiology services.

Cycle Ergometers for Rehabilitation
The Monark Ergomedic 828E cycle ergometer is the world’s most popular fitness testing bike for basic testing. It is ideal for use in physiotherapy and rehabilitation as it has a very sturdy and stable frame. It also features a quality digital readout. This displays speed, pedal revolutions and distance. It also shows time, calorie consumptions and power in watts. Furthermore, if the patient wears a chest belt, heart rate will also be displayed.
The accompanying aerobic test software allows for executing and analysing aerobic tests. These help to calculate VO2max at Åstrand, WHO or YMCA submaximal exercise test. Furthermore, using the bike for cardiac rehabilitation can help to improve peripheral muscle strength, functional capacity and perception of dyspnea when used postoperatively.
The installation by the HaB Direct team of the new Monark cycle ergometers is now complete.
” I would like to thank you [Jordan] and your extended team, especially Pete (engineer) who assisted in the smooth transition of the ergometer purchasing. I understand that these type of transactions can be a drawn out affair, but your replies, patience, professionalism and courteous manner were excellent. I would like to send my gratitude to Pete, his hard labour last week (17th February) cannot be faulted. Pete could not do enough on the day and went above and beyond what was expected.”Adrian Roose, Exercise Physiologist
