Research Activities
Aquatic exercise for elderly and handicapped people (2000-):
Elderly and handicapped people can exercise more easily in water because of the effects of buoyancy. We are evaluating the long-term and acute effects of aquatic exercise for these individuals.

Development of exercise prescription for middle-aged and elderly people using hypoxic and hyperoxic conditions (2004-):
Currently, chambers filled with hypoxic or hyperoxic gas are available; therefore, we are trying to develop new exercise protocols using these conditions.

Future Plan
Exercise is one of the most effective ways to maintain human health. Our laboratory is working to develop new exercise prescriptions designed specifically for middle-aged and elderly people using hypoxic and hyperoxic conditions.
