The Pression Wave was put through its paces with 14 healthy adults. They were asked to climb a step mill wearing a 50lb weighted vest in high-intensity intervals until they reached fatigue.
- 14 Healthy Adults
- Participants wear a 50lb weighted vest for the duration of the study
Complete a stair climbing, high intensity interval exercise using a StepMill in 5-minute intervals of stair climbing separated by two minutes of standing rest
- Interval exercise is repeated until the participant requests to terminate the exercise or for a maximum of 10 intervals
Evaluation of the benefits of Pression compression technology during exercise and recovery, comparing physiological metrics when participants performed exercise with and without compression technology
- Blood lactate
- Blood flow volume
Case Study Results
Outcome #1: Period of Exertion Improvement
Participants were able to endure the intense step mill exercise 14% longer while using Pression compression technology than without it.
Outcome #2: Reduced Blood Lactate Levels
