mnl 8/26/08 2 Naturally, human physiology is quite complex and can require complicated studies in a process that pursues knowledge about the human system. Even more challenging can be the pursuit of this knowledge when human and machine are interacting. Nevertheless, Freshman Engineering Student , Amy decides to experiment with a treadmill, using herself as the subject. Amy and the treadmill constitute a human-machine system, a physiological response of which is Amy’s heart rate. Be careful Amy!

A: Speed in miles per hour B: Incline in degrees Response Y: Amy’s heart rate (bpm) at 15 minutes. Amy generally sets speed around 3 mph and incline around 30 degrees. But 1. Amy wants to predict her heart rate throughout the speed range 2 to 4 mph and incline range 15 to 45 degrees. And 2. She wants to find an abundance of settings that will have a response of 140 beats per min.

I: A=2, B=15 II: A=2, B=45 III: A=4, B=15 IV: A=4, B=45 She runs these combinations in random order and takes a ½ hour break between each measurement. She tries to hold, other things as constant as possible (e.g. no candy). Notation: A - is 2 mph A + is 4 mph B - is 15 degrees B + is 45 degrees
