How to apply , time and cost.
Here one of many mails I am getting now as the numbers of MOXY users and center using this new technology explodes here in Canada and Europe.

Juerg, hi, g'morning. Yes, thanks, very helpful starting direction. We'll need to play around to find the most efficient (time, cost, admin, etc) and recyclable (person to person) solution. Standing by on horse leg wrap?
If I do a NIRS test only for endurance it takes me 2 - 3 min to get ready with the client.
Than the test.
than looking at the data's another 3 min and the printout including zoning based on NIRS is ready to go. When the client comes of the bike all is done .
Cost a 3 m cover roll is about 15 $ it is 9.2 m long you need 20 cm strip so 46 strips are the result is 32 cts per test plus the bag 5 cents = and round up 50 cts per strip cost.
This is 1/2 lactate strip. so no result there and you not even start talking about VO2 mask and other option. So it is a non issue here at all, in fact there is nothing even close out there as affordable now than MOXY testing. True you can ask for the age take it off 220 and bill for the program.
True a functional TP test is cheaper as he only bikes and you calculate..
Cheers and happy thanks giving.
Juerg See below the technique we use since many years when we started with the great portamon.
Now half that size with MOXY, no long connection time need if you not look at it live on the PC but you still have it live on the Garmin watch.
1. Bag ( Dollar store) tape cover roll stretch any where or order over FaCT-Canada.
Now look what alternative you have with direct information ?????
Now look what you spent on indirect data collection. VO2 metabolic cart ???
Next best priced NIRS ???
Lactate testing ???
Seems to be me a no brainer in the money department but yes a major brainer in the physiological thinking department, as we have to " justify" our client, why he does not has to be punished with blood testing and finger poking and why he does not get a nose clamp to stop from natural breathing and his head is not clamped into a head strap. see picture.
