Paper Abstract

This study has been focused to find the importance of the consumption of oxygen for a muscle that works supporting the weight of the human body. The oxygen uptake at rest level is a data know, but by near-IR spectroscopy can be assessed the oxygen uptake used for a muscle. The energy required by the human body is partially used to produce the energy that help to move the human structure. The oxygen required by the muscles to produce the energy to support the human body has been defined as weight oxygen consumption. The purpose of this study was to assess by near-IR spectroscopy the amount of relative oxygenation/deoxygenation that a muscle requires at rest level and a middle-term rest level.
