Completion of the installation at the Olympic Training Center
Hypoxico announces the completion of the installation at the Altitude Hotel in the Olympic Training Center in Pajulahti, Finland.
The Hypoxico system provides sterile hypoxic air for ventilation of the rooms and allows simulating altitude in any room individually according to training protocol. Every room has two monitoring systems that allows controlling oxygen and carbon dioxide levels and measuring temperature and humidity.
Hypoxico altitude training systems for dormitories and altitude hotels are ideal for the elite athlete looking to boost performance with a “sleep-high, train-low” training regimen or the mountaineer looking to maximize exposure to high altitude for purposes of pre-acclimatization.
Sleeping at altitude has been used to improve performance in terms of overall power and endurance and overall well being.
Below are some sleeping at altitude studies
- Effect of moderate-altitude acclimatization with low-altitude training on performance (LEVINE AND GUNDERSEN - 1997)
- Altitude training improves sea level performance in male and female elite runners
