informed consent. Intermittent Hypoxia Intervention Normobaric hypoxia condition was applied by exposing subjects to 5 cycles of 10% O 2 for 5 minutes followed by room air for 5 minutes. Subjects will inspire hypoxic air through an air-cushioned disposable face mask or room air directed by a 3-way valve

Total body fat (TBF) and lean body mass (LBM) excluding bone were measured via whole-body dual X-ray absorptiometry scan (Lunar Prodigy Advance; GE Healthcare, Madison, WI). Metabolic and Respiratory Measurements Participants were fitted with an oronasal mask (model 7450; Hans Rudolph, Shawnee, KS) with

-clip) combination has been the dominant setup. Its main advantage has been superior leak-proof operation, but this constrained breathing mode may be stressful to some. Breathing masks avoid that distress but cannot always guarantee proper seal. Current masks are better form-fitting and more leak-proof than earlier

) preconditioning phase. In the first trial, pure oxygen was administered to group I1 (FiO 2  = 1.0), whereas group I0 breathed chamber air equal to 3500 m (nonhyperoxic). Both groups breathed through a mask. During the final minute of the preconditioning phase, capillary blood (t2) was collected and analyzed

Masks analysis of insoles was performed by dividing the plantar surface into 7 anatomical regions including heel, midfoot, medial forefoot, central forefoot, lateral forefoot, great toe, and lesser toes. 25 The effect of midsole material on plantar pressure was quantified using

Indeed, while equipment or consumables, protocols (see below), and reference values ( 9 ) should be age and weight appropriate, there is a lack of robust reference values

Capillary blood (t2) was collected and analyzed again during the last minute of the preconditioning phase. Immediately after the 5-minute preconditioning phase, subjects
