Paper Abstract

There are many dynamic tests in the last years where an exercise using a specific muscle is assessed by near-IR spectroscopy. It is not possible to find studies of static positions of the human body where one part of it is changing alternately to the normal position. The result gives the deoxygenation and blood volume signals in the same way as when a muscle is exercised. The important differences are in the turn on-off time when the arm changes the position, the effect of training after six days doing the same test, and the difference in the calibration signals before and after each test.
