High Altitude & Sport

High altitude sport and physical activity performed both in Mining sites sport infrastructures and astronomy centers are usually executed in a similar way that at sea level, this kind of activities are often monitored by people without a clear and informed guidance on prescription in terms of intensity, duration and training frequency considering that a percentage of mining workers are in cardiovascular risk. On the other hand, there is an important number of sportsmen who perform at high altitude without any previous training and acclimatization.

 

MedAlt proposes the prescription of individualized exercise considering cardiovascular risk evaluation and initial physical condition, in such a way that this practice can be protective and not harmful to their health. MedAlt also will design different training hypoxia protocols in order to improve competitive performance on high altitude and sea levels (which are world trendy these days) optimizing sports achievement to the limit and allow them to stand out in national and international high competitions.
