    High-Altitude Research Study (Denver, CO area)

    Male subjects needed for research on how breathing training affects performance at high altitude.

    This is a study for US Special Forces, so at this time we are recruiting male subjects who are:
    - 18-45 years old, not overweight, non-smokers
    - Healthy, not on any regular medications, able to ride a stationary bike for up to 2 hours
    - Not suffering from migraine headaches, anemia, or sickle cell disease
    - Willing to not go to the mountains (higher altitudes) for the duration of the study (6 weeks)
    - Able to commit up to 6 hours per week for exercise and breathing training for 4 weeks

    We will measure your VO2max (peak oxygen uptake) twice at Denver altitude and twice at 16,000 feet.

    - You will receive these results once the study has been completed

    The total time commitment is for up to 48 hours over the course of 6-8 weeks.

    Part of the study will be at a simulated altitude of 16,000 feet in a hypobaric chamber.

    Please call 303-724-1675 for more information
