"Er ist der Begrunder der modernen Sport- und Arbeitsphysiologie" (This is the beginning of modern sport and work physiology). [Hirsch]. "In the 1920's, H.W. Knipping and Brauer introduced ergospirometry, which allowed for the testing of performance, instead of just taking all measurements at rest. This was possible due to the development of an ergometer by C. Speck. According to Hollmann and Valentin ergospirometric methods have a certain importance today in research, diagnosis, therapy, rehabilitation, training and sport. Medical special disciplines such as sports medicine, pulmonology, cardiology, occupational medicine, social medicine and physiology of performance and also the fields of biomechanics, clinical pharmacology and biochemistry make use of ergospirometry and owe much new knowledge to it. (p.169). This concept of measuring lung capacities during physical activity was a huge breakthrough in the scientific world, and it is still used today. It allows exercise physiologists to measure oxygen consumption and energy expenditure during exercise, and therefore gain much information about the fitness and health levels of the individuals performing the tests."
