The effect of pitched and vertical ladder ergometer climbing on cardiorespiratory and psychophysical variables. (2017)
Journal Article
BARRON, P.-J., BURGESS, K., COOPER, K. and STEWART, A.D. 2018. The effect of pitched and vertical ladder ergometer climbing on cardiorespiratory and psychophysical variables. Applied ergonomics [online], 66, pages 172-176. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apergo.2017.09.001

This study aimed to assess whether modifying the pitch of a 75° ladder ergometer to vertical had a cardiorespiratory or psychophysical effect on climbing. Nine male participants climbed a ladder ergometer at 75° and subsequently at 90°, adjusted for...

The physiological effect of a 'climb assist' device on vertical ladder climbing. (2016)
Journal Article
BARRON, P.J., BURGESS, K., COOPER, K. and STEWART, A.D. 2017. The physiological effect of a 'climb assist' device on vertical ladder climbing. Ergonomics [online], 60(7), pages 1008-1013. Available from: http://doi.org/10.1080/00140139.2016.1244290

Climb assist systems claim to reduce strain when climbing ladders; however, no research has yet substantiated this. The purpose of this study was to assess the physiological and psychophysical effects of climb assist on 30 m ladder climbing at a mini...
