Your Bruce treadmill calculator maxes out at age 60 which does not seem correct

Most machines do not allow increase in the slope by 2%, it is only by 5%.

BRUCE TEST SHOULD BE ADJUSTED.
MORE EFFORT REQUIRED FROM PERSON OF 68 INCH HEIGHT THAN PERSON OF 74 INCH HEIGHT. HOW DO MEDICS ACCOUNT FOR THIS?
