Subjects are divided into two groups, (1) Control (Ctrl) and (2) Smart Exercise (SE) group. Ctrl group are instructed to maintain their daily life. SE participants are instructed to do exercise with smart exercise system twice per week for 12 weeks. The physical fitness tests and questionnaire of both group are performed before and after the 12-week exercise program.
The smart exercise system contain an upper extremity cycle ergometer (UEE) and a lower extremity cycle ergometer (LEE). SE group are instructed to do once session of UEE and once session of LEE per week, 30 minute per session, lasting for 12 weeks. Before each exercise, the physiological parameter are measured to ensure safety. During exercise, heart rate of user and revolutions per minute (RPM) of the ergometer is detected per second. After each session of exercise, the rating of perceived exertion (RPE) of user is also inquired and recorded.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
