Assisted Air

A wearable device to prolong your anaerobic threshold during heavy exercise, allowing you to push harder & go faster for longer than before!

During exercise with adequate fuel and oxygen levels (aerobic respiration), muscle cells can contract repeatedly without fatigue. During anaerobic (or non-oxygen) conditions muscle cells must rely on other reactions that do not require oxygen to fuel muscle contraction - these other reactions cause a buildup of lactic acid, resulting in fatigue and performance drop off.

With these facts in mind, is it not unreasonable to hypothesise that a device that increases oxygen intake can prolong the transition from aerobic to a anaerobic respiration - allowing you to push your limit (anaerobic threshold) for longer with no fatigue?

Finding an answer is the purpose of this project.
Achieving super-human sprint distances is the goal...

This article says human blood leaving the lungs is already saturated with oxygen, and more oxygen in the air would not help: http://www.livescience.com/4080-suffocating-trends-oxygen-bars-drinks.html

What might help is a substance that augments or replaces hemoglobin in the blood. Such things have been researched a bit in recent years.
