COSMED is proud to introduce the K5, the 4th generation of the most popular wearable metabolic system, a breakthrough in the field of exercise physiology and human performance assessment. The K5 is the most innovative and versatile metabolic system ever created. The K5 reaps the benefits of more than 25 years of experience with metabolic systems. The extensive list of new and unique characteristics of the K5 expands the scope of metabolic testing from clinical exercise testing to performance assessment.
Accuracy and reliability. The K5 uses the latest technology, including COSMED's 4th generation opto-electronic reader and proven and reliable highly linear and rapid response O2 (GFC) and CO2 (NDIR) sensors.
Intelligent Metabolic Sampling Technology. IntelliMET™ (US Patent 9581539) measures gas exchange either with micro-dynamic mixing chamber or breath by breath techniques. Users can select between the two modes depending on the protocol type, research field or other factors.
Wireless connectivity. The K5 offers efficient wireless data transmission (both standard Bluetooth and long range Bluetooth) and seamless integration with other devices (i.e., wireless wrist-worn pulse oximeter).
Metabolic cart test mode. The K5 features include a standard USB port and medical grade AC/DC power plug. These features turn the device into a conventional metabolic cart (PC-controlled via software).
Advanced wearability. The single-body design (battery inside) reduces weight, simplifies subject setup and improves ergonomics. The new harness (2 sizes) is comfortable and offers freedom of movement during testing. Alternatively, the K5 can be mounted on supports through the integrated tripod mount (1/4”-20 UNC).
Rugged device designed according to IP54 standard. All plugs, connectors and caps are protected by seals and are water, moisture and dust resistant. Resistive touch-screen technology allows use either with gloves or wet fingers.
User-accessbile slots. Users can easily access and replace the O2 sensor, Li-ion battery and SD-card (for extra storage capacity).
Intuitive device user interface. The K5 display assures simplified navigation and quick access to all commands and features. The status bar provides information regarding time, date, battery status, Bluetooth, GPS and notification icons (QC messages, warnings, etc). Also included is the ability to switch between data, graphs, GPS etc, during real-time measurements.
Metabolic + Kinematic. Synchronize data with integrated 10 Hz GPS and altimeter.
ANT+ certified. The K5 can be integrated with the world’s largest sport sensors network (up to 5 profiles available for 250+ compatible products). Up to 8 wireless devices can be contemporarily connected with the K5.
