Hypoxico introduces its newest Altitude Generator SCU-270R designed for converting small rooms into simulated altitude environment or for the use with respiratory masks. This plug-and-play unit is easy to move around and it can be connected to a standard electrical outlet. Different voltages are available. This Altitude Generator can accommodate up to 4 breathing masks at the same time and can provide hypoxic or hyperoxic flow as well as ambient air for placebo effect. Great for research applications...

Training masks do not simulate altitude


Training masks do not simulate altitude

“ELEVATION” MASKS VS. HYPOXICO ALTITUDE TRAINING MASK SYSTEM There are many confusing training masks on the market for athletes. Some are advertised as “altitude” masks and some as “elevation” masks. But do they increase your red blood cell count like you are expecting them to? IN SHORT, THEY WILL NOT. Training at a high altitude is associated with two key environmental factors. First, a reduced partial pressure of oxygen (hypobaria). The second is a reduced...

Hypoxico sponsors Leadville trail 100 mile run


Hypoxico sponsors Leadville trail 100 mile run

For the last several years, the days and weeks after the Leadville 100 mile ride and runs are some of the busiest of the year for us at Hypoxico. Not only are we in communication with our clients who’ve taken on the challenges, but we also receive dozens of calls and emails from people who didn’t use our equipment or sufficiently acclimatize to altitude and who are thus disappointedly looking for solutions for another future attempt. Racing at 10,000 feet above sea-level is a hugely demanding...

Hypoxico altitude to oxygen chart


This oxygen chart extrapolates the effective amount of oxygen percentages to real altitude. At real altitude, the barometric pressure of the atmosphere is significantly less than that of sea-level environments. The result is that oxygen molecules in the air are further apart, reducing the oxygen content of each breath incrementally as one goes up in altitude. The reduction of oxygen availability in the air thus reduces the oxygen saturation in the blood and brains of unacclimatized people introduced...

Interesting article: Hypoxia increases muscle hypertrophy induced by resistance training


The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Mie University Graduate School of Medicine, Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, Japan, published an interesting article on how Hypoxia increases muscle hypertrophy induced by resistance training. PURPOSE: Recent studies have shown that low-intensity resistance training with vascular occlusion (kaatsu training) induces muscle hypertrophy. A local hypoxic environment facilitates muscle hypertrophy during kaatsu training. We postulated that muscle hypertrophy...

Altitude acclimatization by sleeping in a head tent


Altitude acclimatization by sleeping in a head tent

Here's our good friend and partner Adrian Ballinger preparing for his oxygen-less attempt on ‪Everest‬ from the Northside (Tibet) with Cory Richards. Adrian has already summited Everest 6x but this will be his first without the use of supplemental O2. Using the Head Tent has allowed Adrian to maintain his aggressive pre-acclimatization schedule without having to infringe on his partner's sleep. Adrian's company Alpenglow Expeditions leads ‪‎RapidAscent‬ expeditions around the world -...
