|Official Title:||The Efficacy of Adjustable Lower Abdominal Compression in Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension|
|Study Start Date :||October 2010|
|Primary Completion Date :||August 2012|
|Study Completion Date :||August 2012|
Experimental: Abdominal binder
Standing with abdominal compression using elastic vs. non-elastic abdominal binders.
Other: Abdominal binder
External abdominal compression sequentially applied at 20 mmHg for 3 minutes, maximal tolerable level for 1.5 minutes and comfortable level for 2 minutes.
Placebo Comparator: No abdominal binder
Standing without abdominal compression
Other: No abdominal binder
Standing without abdominal binder for 3 minutes
- Difference between averaged standing blood pressure with and without binders [ Time Frame: 3-7 minutes ]A 1-minute averaged blood pressure is measured at 3 minutes of standing without abdominal binder and at 3, 4.5 and 6.5 minutes of standing with abdominal binders. All measurements are obtained during a single session.
- Difference in orthostatic symptom score with and without binders [ Time Frame: 3-7 minutes ]Orthostatic symptoms are measured at 3 minutes of standing without abdominal binder, and at 3, 4.5 and 6.5 minutes of standing with abdominal binders. All measurements are obtained during a single session.
