Study Summary

This trial looks at the effects of autoregulated & non-autoregulated blood flow restriction arm curls on arterial stiffness in 20 adults. Tests & exercise will be done to compare physiological changes.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for physically active women aged 18-40 with regular menstrual cycles, who have been weight stable. It's not suitable for those with a history of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, extreme obesity (BMI>40), diabetes, recent surgery, sleep apnea, liver or kidney disease, claustrophobia or if pregnant/nursing.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests how bicep curls with different levels of blood flow restriction affect arterial stiffness in healthy adults. Participants will try three types of arm exercises: without restriction (control), autoregulated and non-autoregulated BFR using the Delfi Personal Tourniquet Systems.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects are not listed for this exercise-based intervention, participants may experience discomfort from the tourniquet system or muscle fatigue due to the exercise protocol.

Trial Design

3Treatment groups
Active Control
Group I: Autoregulated blood flow restrictionActive Control1 Intervention
Autoregulated BFR expands as the muscle progresses into the stretch-shortening cycle.
Group II: Non-autoregulated blood flow restrictionActive Control1 Intervention
Non-autoregulated BFR does not expand as the muscle progresses into the stretch-shortening cycle.
Group III: No blood flow restrictionActive Control1 Intervention
This group serves as the control group for this study
