Newtest Powertimer Update
news written at August 2, 2006

You can also download this press release in PDF form at

Newtest Powertimer 300 series testing system is updated with the PowertimerPC software, USB-to-serial adapter kit and a modified connection unit (product code 301200.00).The Powertimer system has utilized the Palm PDAs (models m105 and Zire) during its lifetime. The Palm PDAs have proven to be very difficult to install and especially, the Palm Zire has been of very poor quality compromising the Powertimer system. Therefore, we have decided to replace the Palm with PC based software. The Powertimer will be available with the updated features starting 1.8.2006. The system may also be updated with update kit for those customers who already have the Powertimer 300 series system.

We have chosen a commercial kit for the connection of the Powertimer to PC. The kit is manufactured by Eminent.

Please contact your local supplier for further information. If you have trouble locating your distributor/supplier for further information please contact Newtest Oy.

The update is available for distribution August 1, 2006.

Running Based Anaerobic Sprint Test (RAST) can be used successfully to replace the Wingate test!
news written at May 17, 2004

A study made at the University of Athens (Athens, Greece) compared three different anaerobic power and capacity tests (Critical Velocity field test, Wingate test and RAST).

The results showed that the Critical Velocity field test did not correlate significantly with Wingate test peak power, mean power nor the fatigue index. Furthermore, the absent of significant correlation was also noticed between Critical Velocity field test and RAST peak powerand average power. The study confirmed significant correlation between RAST and Wingate in peak power and mean power.

The study concluded that RAST can be used successfully as a replacement to the Wingate test as an estimate of the anaerobic power and capacity.
