The Bruce Protocol Test is used by athletes to analyse their performance by comparing present results to past ones. The test is commonly used by coaches and athletes for checking the general level of endurance. It is also used as a non-invasive test method by doctors. It helps to determine any abnormalities that may be present in the heart muscles electrical 'firing patterns'.
The Bruce Protocol Test is conducted on a treadmill. The test begins by running at an incline or gradient of 10%, and speed of 2.74 km/hr. The incline and speed of the treadmill is gradually increased every three minutes. Generally the incline is increased by 2% at each interval.
Here at Glasgow Occupational Health our highly trained technicians utilise the best high performance state of the art treadmills in conjunction with Labtech Heart Monitoring equipment. Each report can, if requested, be reported by our cardiologist.
