This paper investigates the designs and applications of a virtual reality exercise bike system utilizing active power control. An impedance control which employs a state filter to simplify certain circuits such as torque sensors, is presented for executing functions required by these machines. This approach can be used to improve the indoor exercise experience and assist in physical rehabilitation. Moreover, this method, as opposed to passive techniques, gives patients more options in their endeavors to recover. An experimental setup is given to evaluate control performance in real time and also to demonstrate some practical uses.
