In April 2018 researchers from the USA published the results of their study which assessed the effect of blood flow restriction training in a 65-year-old male recreational boxer diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The training consisted of 5 x two-minute bouts of walking on a treadmill with lower extremity blood flow restriction cuffs interspersed with a minute’s rest, three times a week for six weeks, at 0 grade incline, and at a speed of 50 meters/min. At the end of this initial phase the individual then undertook the same exercise for a period of four weeks, but this time without the blood flow restriction cuffs. Every two weeks during the period of the study the individual underwent a Timed Up and Go Test, 6-Minute Walk Test, 30-Second Chair Stand Test, and completed the restless leg syndrome questionnaire. Results showed that all assessments improved during the 6-week training phase and then steadily declined during the second 4-week phase when the blood flow restriction cuffs were removed.
