Higher fat oxidation during treadmill walking versus cycle ergometry in active women at equal RPE: a pilot study.

Muscle degrades fat and carbohydrate (CHO) during exercise to meet the demand for ATP. Factors including exercise intensity/duration and fitness level are recognized as primary determinants of the relative contribution of these macronutrients to substrate metabolism, although exercise mode has also been identified. The aim of this study was to...

How important is hydrotherapy? Effects of dynamic action of hot spring water as a rehabilitative treatment for burn patients in Switzerland.

Burn rehabilitation using hydrotherapy can have multiple benefits for the burn patient. The therapy uses specific mineral enriched hot spring water and water jets with varied hydro-pressure to combat hypertrophy, inflammatory reaction signs, abnormal pigmentation, and, more specifically, redness and scarring. Standard operating procedures for burn rehabilitation have been developed...

[The application of a pulsed low-frequency electrostatic field for the prevention of premature ageing].

This paper demonstrates the effectiveness of the application of a pulsed low-frequency electrostatic field (PLFESF) in order to prevent premature ageing. The study involved 50 subjects. PLFESF therapy was conducted using the DEEP OSCILLATION-200 apparatus with the applicator moved 9.5 cm along the massage lines in the dorsal collar region...
