Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Lower body negative pressure (LBNP) treadmill exercise was developed for health maintenance during periods of microgravity. It involves exercising on a treadmill within a waist-high pressure chamber connected to a pump. LBNP treadmill exercise generates a pressure differential between the upper and lower body increasing ground reaction forces (GRFs). This study compared the physiological, perceptual and affective responses in women during 30 min of self-regulated treadmill walking with and without LBNP.
