This study is aimed to explore the heart rate variability (HRV) response during short-term exercise by stair stepper and to compare the finding between young healthy male and female subjects. The responses were statistically analyzed by applying independent-samples t-test statistical method. The calculation of coefficient of variation (CoV (%)) and the slope of the linear regression are used to assess the steadiness of the HRV. Furthermore, the results also demonstrated that female subjects had greater significant p-value of RMSSD feature, and significance p-value of an LF feature is greater in males. Thus, the ongoing results demonstrated that males have the sympathetic drive and females have predominant parasympatheticdrive during a short-term exercise on stair stepper. Thus, the experiment results indicate the suitability of developing rehabilitation devices in the field of Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) research, control system and rehabilitation engineering, which may help to isolate males and females.
