Table 1 Results of measurements of forearm circumference and reactive hyperemic oxygenation response of the IMM and IMM + TRN groups before and after immobilization.

From: Low-volume muscular endurance and strength training during 3-week forearm immobilization was effective in preventing functional deterioration

  Group Pre Post
Circumference (cm) IMM 24.7 ± 1.6 24.7 ± 1.6
  IMM+TRN 24.8 ± 1.4 25.1 ± 1.7
Oxy-Hb peak value (%) IMM 161.3 ± 17.0 149.6 ± 13.9
  IMM+TRN 149.8 ± 9.5 135.6 ± 18.7
Oxy-Hb ΔT (sec) IMM 64.3 ± 38.7 75.3 ± 28.1
  IMM+TRN 55.1 ± 22.9 83.5 ± 27.0
Total Hb peak value (%) IMM 0.072 ± 0.014 0.060 ± 0.019
  IMM+TRN 0.084 ± 0.007 0.063 ± 0.038
Total Hb ΔT (sec) IMM 45.3 ± 20.2 55.6 ± 38.1
  IMM+TRN 31.4 ± 15.2 48.7 ± 21.7
  1. oxy-Hb peak value, the peak value of oxygenated hemoglobin in the recovery phase after ischemia; oxy-Hb ΔT, the time from the end point of ischemia to oxy-Hb peak value; totalHb peak value, the peak value of total hemoglobin in the recovery phase after ischemia; totalHb ΔT, the time from the end point of ischemia to totalHb peak value. No significant group × time interaction was seen in the forearm circumference and reactive hyperemic oxygenation response either in IMM or IMM+TRN group. Values are mean ± SD.
