Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Healthy Muscle [ Time Frame: upto 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 140
Study Start Date: October 2004
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy
    Muscle properties
Detailed Description:

The researcher can monitor muscle physiology, for example during exercise or in response to external factors such as shock by Diffuse Optical spectroscopy technique.

The Diffuse Optical spectroscopy technique can determine significant changes in muscle, muscle structure, muscle tissues metabolism and hemodynamics.
