We describe a new support structure for respiratory gas valves for use in exercise studies. Use of this structure largely avoids problems of large inertial reactions and feelings of confinement on the part of the subject which have characterized previous systems. The support mechanism consists of a spring-reacted, pivoted boom carried on the end of a counterbalanced swinging beam. This device was designed for use on an adjustable slope motor-driven treadmill, but may be adapted to a variety of other experimental arrangements.
