Got a nice critical mail
In a summary :
who besides MOXY used NIRS and is there somebody reliable who did some research and did some publications.?
Absolutely great and good point.
I like to start with a summary here, as we show nonstop independent studeis supporting or not supporting our ideas.
Here so you have it short. Longer as a pdf below if you have time and please look at the publication date.
Many may be already soon a 1/4 century behind reality.
The use of NIRS in sports and exercise science has increased exponentially during
the past several years. Based on the available literature, there is sufficient data to
show that NIRS can be used as an objective measurement tool for evaluating localized
muscle oxidative metabolism and hemodynamics during both acute exercise
and following chronic training programs. Data is available to show that NIRS
can be used to differentiate physical fitness level, indirectly reflect blood flow
changes during acute exercise, and monitor changes in endurance exercise training
and during resistance workout exercises. More research is warranted to examine
the effects of differing training strategies such as tapering on muscle oxygenation
and tHb changes, the contribution of myoglobin to the NIRS signal, and
more precisely define the local region of interrogation by the NIRS probe.
I would like to acknowledge the financial support from the VP Research Office and the
Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick, and I thank my colleagues
Drs. Marco Ferrari and Yagesh Bhambhani for their constructive comments
during the preparation of this manuscript. I would also like to express my sincere
appreciation to my famiy for their support during the writing of this manuscript.
