Abstract
No previous scientific investigation has studied the influence of either increasing or decreasing levels of body weight (BW) support on oxygen consumption (VO2) while running in reduced BW conditions via a differential air pressure (DAP) treadmill. Moran et al. found rate of perceived exertion to be higher at the same BW conditions when moving from high BW support to low BW support but did not quantify the findings with VO2.
