Heart attack: The simple move that could protect you against the deadly condition


    Methods to record vascular function and arterial stiffness, which were measured before and after 12 weeks, included pulse wave analysis and flow-mediated dilation.

    Arteries in both the lower leg and upper arm were shown to have increased blood flow and dilation when stimulated, along with decreased stiffness.

    Improvements in blood pressure, arterial stiffness and vascular function were also noted in the arteries of the body parts directly and not directly involved in passive stretching of the lower limbs.

    After 12 weeks of training, blood pressure was decreased, arterial stiffness was reduces and vascular function was increased.
