Altitude training and Intermittent Hypoxic
Training (IHT) have been used by athletes for
over 40 years to gain exceptional stamina and
endurance for their sporting events.
Traditional altitude training requires a move to
a high altitude camp for 2-10 weeks but the
beneficial effects only last for 2 weeks after the
athlete returns to sea level. The costs for this
type of training are high and the effects only
temporary. Altitude tents are sealed
enclosures with reduced oxygen levels equal
to 10,000 ft where athletes sleep 8-12 hours a
night for 30 days. They cost $7000 to buy or
$400 per month to rent.
AltoLab is a revolutionary new IHT device
that is the simplest and most effective altitude
simulator on the market today.
AltoLab is a small, plastic, rebreather device
that lowers your body's oxygen to levels found
at high altitudes. It is used for only a few
minutes at a time by alternating breathing
between fresh air and the AltoLab unit.

how it improves athletic performance and
stamina at sea level and how it helps
acclimate mountaineers and skiers living at
sea level who are planning adventures for
Clinical research at Ohio State University
shows that AltoLab is clearly the most
portable and most effective Live High, Train
Low altitude simulator on the market today.
