The Science of CVAC
We believe that improved physical conditioning supports all of the body’s natural energy systems. CVAC Systems, Inc. is interested in supporting the exploration of the varied expressions of the body’s response to the whole-body adaptive conditioning provided by the CVAC Process.

A validation study performed at the University of Hawaii showed that it is potentially the challenge created through the delivery of the patterned low-barometric pressures of the CVAC Process that allows the body to become more efficient at utilizing available oxygen; thus improving the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.

A blinded, placebo-controlled study showed the CVAC Process mirrored the effects of high-intensity exercise on glycolytic energy production in non-diabetic middle-aged men at risk for metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. The men in the study participated in less than three hours of exercise per week.

Results in another published study on the CVAC Process showed pain relief in a population diagnosed with a chronic painful adipose (fat) disorder and showed benefits consistent with some known benefits of exercise; namely the benefit of lymphatic mobilization. The participants in the study were also unable to tolerate traditional exercise due to their diagnoses.In lymphatic mobilization, plasma proteins and other metabolic waste products are removed. Effective lymphatic mobilization decreases the incidence of inflammation and has a positive impact on the body’s immune system, endocrine balance, delivery of nutrients and improved breathing. Moreover, the CVAC Process exposures were well-tolerated by most of the participants.

We believe that improved physical conditioning supports all of the body’s natural energy systems. CVAC Systems, Inc. is interested in supporting the exploration of the varied expressions of the body’s response to the whole-body adaptive conditioning provided by the CVAC Process. We are specifically interested in showing improvement in condition in those with a history of diabetic peripheral neuropathy, those with a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), those with a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and concussion.
