SCIENTISTS CONFIRM THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HYPOXI-Method

HYPOXI became a registered Patent on  October 3rd 1997 (Patent Number E.P 0906774131); marking a new era in the health and weight loss industry. HYPOXI is still the first and only device that utilises vacuum technology and exercise in order to achieve effective targeted fat burning results!

Don’t just believe our word for it, here are a few excerpts of studies based on the benefits of HYPOXI:

Professor Christoph M. Bamberger and his team from the Medical Prevention Centre in Hamburg conducted a study on whether HYPOXI is really more effective at targeting fat and cellulite reduction than a regular workout.

PARAMETERS OF THE STUDY

Twenty women and sixteen men were enrolled in the study. All candidates were placed on the same nutritional programme.

The candidates were then split into groups:

WOMEN

Group A: Undertook Hypoxi S120 training 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time

Group B: Undertook exercise on a stationary bike 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time

MEN

Group A: Undertook Hypoxi Vacunaut training 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time

Group B: Undertook exercise on a treadmill 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS

Ending the 4 weeks, all candidates were subjected to rigorous measurement and analysis. Professor Bamberger and his team made the following findings:

WOMEN

Reduction in circumference (HIPS, BUTTOCKS AND THIGHS):

The total circumference lost by the HYPOXI group (an average of 13.1cm) was significantly more than for the participants in the control group (an average of 4.8cm)

Reduction in circumference (THIGH):

The circumference lost by the HYPOXI group from each thigh (an average of 2.9cm) was very significantly larger than for the participants in the control group (an average of just 0.7cm)

Reduction in circumference (ABS & HIPS):

The circumference lost by the HYPOXI group from the abdomen and hips (an average of 7.4cm) was very significantly larger than for the participants in the control group (an average of just 2.7cm)

MEN

Reduction in circumference (ABS & HIPS):

The circumference lost by the HYPOXI group from the abdomen and hips (an average of 9.4cm) was very significantly larger than for the participants in the control group (an average of just 2.9cm)

Professor Bamberger concluded that while both conventional exercise and HYPOXI can result can weight loss results over 4 weeks; the effects are better with HYPOXI. He said:

“with regard to fat in the targeted zones, HYPOXI is significantly superior to a conventional workout. HYPOXI is a scientifically method for fat reduction on problem zones.”

In a controlled study conducted Landeskrankenanstalten Salzburg, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was utilised in order to measure and visually demonstrate the fat reduction achieved through HYPOXI training.

This test was conducted over a two week period, in which the subjects carried out eight HYPOXI training sessions in the L250 machine. In order to reliably measure the fat reduction over this time, an MRI was taken prior and then subsequent to the completion of the HYPOXI treatments.

The MR images found that the thickness of the fat surrounding the subject’s lower body noticeably reduced on the completion of the HYPOXI L250 training sessions.

These magnetic resonance images coupled with the table of average results below, confirm that the circumference loss achieved with HYPOXI is not attributed to fluid loss, but rather the result of real fat degradation.

In 1998, a scientific trial was conducted to compare the results in targeted fat loss and cellulite reduction from HYPOXI training against those achieved with conventional exercise.

This study was comprised of 530 women between the ages of 25 to 55, with the average weight of the candidates was 65kg. The group was split in two, with half undertaking conventional exercise on a reclined bike, and the other half using HYPOXI. Both groups had to follow the same calorie controlled diet. The group was monitored for a period of six months.

The results made it evident that those who participated in HYPOXI training were able to target fat loss on their circumference more effectively in comparison to conventional exercise.

To summarise:

Participants who trained with Vacunaut were seen to achieve up to 3 and a half times increased circumference loss around the stomach area compared to the controlled sample who undertook conventional exercise; and

participants who trained using the L250 saw on average 3 times greater loss of circumference in the area of the lower body than the controlled sample with conventional exercising methods.

This study was the first study that demonstrated the ability HYPOXI has in achieving targeted fat loss results.
