About the Project
Specifically, to investigate the immediate and chronic effects of blood flow restriction on the inflammatory responses to high volumes of exercise training evident in elite level athletes, as well as the chronic low grade inflammation present in older and chronically ill populations such as peripheral vascular disease patients. Both acute exercise studies and chronic training interventions will be performed to assess different muscular and physiological adaptations in response to KAATSU.
Concurrently, physiological indicators related to the prescription of safe KAATSU procedures will also be considered to ensure the highest safety possible and to safeguard the physical integrity of the athletes/patients while determining an effective occlusion dose. Once a safe and effective dose has been established and specific physiological mechanisms are better understood, subsequent studies will focus on patient populations with special focus on its analgesic potential and its effectiveness to reduce pain, serving as a possible pain-modulation tool in individuals with chronic/acute pain. This research supported by an experienced team is envisaged to provide excellent training opportunities and to generate a significant number of outcomes to be added to the body of research and specifically the physiological mechanisms behind KAATSU.
