Measurement of power in mechanically braked cycle ergometers for performance evaluation

Abstract

Since the Industrial Revolution, the measurement of human work has been of great interest. Initially, this interest revolved around determining pay-related performance of miners or navvies digging canals, on the railways and roads. Tate (1870) defines a unit of work as ‘the labour requisite to raise one pound through one foot of space’, and his texts give examples based around manual labour.
