A German university has developed an altitude training device based on technologies that stem from heart-lung machines and blood enrichment with oxygen. It is suitable for personal use, fitness studios or therapy centres.
The invention has the potential to provide enrichment for every athlete; each training session being individually adapted. The positive effect of repeated short-term oxygen deficiency on the human body has been presumed for a long time, and extensive research has been conducted on this topic. Its therapeutic effects are also being increasingly investigated. Thus, it is also expected to have a positive impact especially on chronic pulmonary diseases (e.g. COPD- chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and on cardiac system disorders (e.g. arterial hypertension).
The university offers a license agreement as well as a technical cooperation agreement. Basically the university is looking for a company to further develop the device and to produce it. A most suitable partner would be active in medical engineering.
