O2 Chart

This handy O2 chart extrapolates the effective amount of oxygen to actual altitude. At real altitude, the barometric pressure of the atmosphere is considerably lower than that of sea level. The result is that oxygen molecules in the air are further apart, so that the oxygen content is lowered step by step with each breath as one goes higher. The reduction at that time of the available oxygen in the air at height also reduces the oxygen saturation in the blood. This is the reason why people who travel from sea level often behave properly in the first week

Advantages of a pre-acclimatization program.

Whether it is a mountaineering expedition or just a relaxing skiing holiday, many people rise to great heights every year. We spend a lot of time and money planning the perfect trip. Nobody wants to ruin that trip due to altitude sickness. That's why many people turn to Altitude Dream for the benefits of our pre-acclimatization program. Mountaineers must acclimatize for weeks in the base camp to get used to the severe hypoxic conditions. Even with this time investment, and regardless of one's physical condition, the risk of acute altitude sickness (AMS) is always present. The

Kilian Jornet Training Acclimitize

Kilian Jornet & Emelie Forsberg test our 'Fast Acclimatize' method

Two of the world's best mountain athletes of this generation, Kilian Jornet and Emelie Forsberg, tried to quickly climb Cho Oyu in the Himalayas. Cho Oyu with its summit of 26,906 '(8,188m) is the sixth highest mountain in the world and a favorite of many seasoned alpinists. Although they have an incredibly natural talent, Kilian and Emelie live at sea level in Norway and do not have the altitude exposure needed to acclimatize for Himalayan expeditions. In addition to climbing, Kilian and Emelie are world-class trail runners and ski mountaineers who travel regularly

High Tech altitude room helps prepare Olympic athletes for Tokyo

The advancement in sports science and technology helps athletes around the world. Training at a simulated height or in a climate room was unthinkable 20 years ago. The ability to simulate altitude and / or climate in your own environment gives athletes a clear advantage over the competition. When the US Olympic Committee asked in 2014 to install a world class elevation room, we knew exactly what they needed to train above the rest. What does High-Tech mean? The USOC wanted a High Tech training solution

How much noise does a height generator make?

A height generator always makes noise. Nevertheless, the differences in noise level between manufacturers are particularly large. The Everest Summit 2 Altitude Dream height generator is designed and produced in the US according to strict medical specifications. This height generator is the only one with no less than 6 ATF cells and is therefore the quietest height generator on the market. The noise level of our height generator is only 58 decibels. What does 58 decibels mean? Decibels are rather difficult to interpret. Because how much sound is 58 decibels? Most companies use situations to compare decibels.

Mathieu-Van-der-Poel

Mathieu Van der Poel in Belgium on 'height internship' for WC

Van der Poel is the rider that the peloton should take into account during the World Championship on the road in Yorkshire. De Brabander won the Amstel Gold Race this season and a few smaller classics. In order to optimally prepare for the World Cup in England, a 'height tent' will be sleeping in the coming period. From 7 September he will ride the Tour of Britain eight-day stage race, before that he will go on a height internship in Belgium. "We had two options: either an internship abroad, or an internship in Belgium, with Mathieu
