This year's University of Tasmania Northern open day at Newnham will give aspiring exercise science students a chance to see the equipment in action on Saturday.
Open day attendees will get a chance to observe the cardiac diagnostic test, named the Bruce test, conducted on both a treadmill and exercise bike in a heat chamber.
In other news:
The test measures a person's VO2 levels to determine their aerobic fitness and capacity.
Second-year exercise and sport science student and open day ambassador Kiani Allen said for aspiring students to see what they could be learning at UTAS was interesting.
"You actually get and be a part of and participate in what you could be doing in the future if you did this degree," she said.
"Once we graduate and we go out into the field we'll most likely be working with this kind of equipment."
As well as live-demonstrations conducted by students, the walkthrough will include a Zwift bike riding virtual reality station.
