It is possible to estimate the calories burned in stair-treadmill by using the MET data (Metabolic Equivalent of Task).
But weight is required in order to calculate calories burned.
I use Met Calculations for the following activity: stair-treadmill ergometer, general (MET= 9).
Calories are per 1 hour of activity(same for male or female).
(man/woman) weighing 50 kg = 450 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 55 kg = 540 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 60 kg = 540 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 65 kg = 585 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 70 kg = 630 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 75 kg = 675 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 80 kg = 720 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 85 kg = 765 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 90 kg = 810 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 95 kg = 855 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 100 kg = 900 calories.
