Independent study at the Medical Prevention Centre Hamburg, 2010

In 2010, Professor Christoph M. Bamberger and his team from the Medical Prevention Centre in Hamburg set out to establish whether HYPOXI® really is more effective at targeted 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

At the conclusion of 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 in weight loss 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 scientific method for fat reduction on problem zones.

Independent study using MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

In a controlled study conducted by Landeskrankenanstalten Salzburg, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was used to measure and visually demonstrate the fat reduction achieved with HYPOXI® training.

The test was conducted over a two week period, over which time the subjects carried out eight HYPOXI® training sessions in the L250. 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.

It is apparent from these MR images 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.

Landmark study Into the effects of HYPOXI® training, 1998

Vacunaut®

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

The study comprised of 530 women between the ages of 25 to 55, and 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.

L250

From these results it is evident that those who participated in HYPOXI® training were able to concentrate their circumference loss to the specific problem area of the body, in contrast to conventional exercise.

To summarise:

  • those participants who undertook training with Vacunaut® achieved up to 3 and a half times greater circumference loss around the stomach area than the controlled sample who undertook conventional exercise; and
  • those participants who undertook training in the L250 achieved on average a 3 times higher loss of circumference in the area of the lower body than the controlled sample who undertook conventional exercise.

This study was the first to demonstrate HYPOXI’s ability to achieve targeted fat loss results for clients.
