Oxygen is essential to life. Without proper oxygen utilization our health can suffer, our immune system can become compromised, our performance decreases and recovery time takes longer.
The Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning™ (CVAC™) pod is neither hyperbaric nor true hypobaric but, rather, the world’s only multi-baric system. It is a unique and effective conditioning program that uses precise and continuous air pressure changes to better utilize the oxygen you breathe, improve your body’s energy systems, and increase circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid for faster removal of cell waste and toxins.
People of all ages and levels of conditioning consistently report benefits that include:
While you are comfortably seated in the CVAC multi-baric pod the air pressure will continually change, 200-400 times, during a 20-minute session. These air pressure changes act like a ‘pump’ stimulating every part of your body, from brain to toes, enhancing fluid flow through tissues, lymphatic and blood vessels by continually dilating and constricting cells.
Better fluid flow reduces inflammation, removes cellular waste and toxins, and increases oxygen absorption for faster recovery from many issues your body deals with.
The CVAC multi-baric pod strengthens your circulatory system in much the same way weight training strengthens your muscles and bones. The process is all natural and purely achieved through continuous, dynamic changes in the density of fresh, purified air moving in and out of the pod.
The intervals with which the air pressure changes are custom tailored to your body’s specific needs and improve the three areas vital to performance: power, endurance, and recovery. The CVAC process is completely safe as there are no chemicals, the percentage of oxygen you breathe remains the same at all times, and there is nothing that would adversely affect your health nor, for competitive athletes, ban you from your sport.
In 1984 Carl Linton, a respiratory therapist, was asked to take over research associated with the work of Dr. S. Tromp into the effects of “serial short stays at simulated altitude.” Carl was skeptical when he was told that the Tromp method was a “cure” for asthma. He found himself challenged to either verify or disprove the statement.
Carl spent the next five years and over 10,000 hours on what was essentially the first theoretical research done on the effects of short stays at simulated altitude. This altitude simulator provided a suitable model for testing his theories.
From it came the first commercial use of the CVAC process for thoroughbred race horses!
The results proved so effective (one horse, retired due to injury, went through 120 sessions and made a comeback breaking the track’s record time) that the next step was to design a system people would be able to use.
An early “beer can” design led to a more streamlined prototype in 2000.
Then came the design of the current production model.
Which was much roomier and less claustrophobic.
And the number of places you’ll find them is growing!
