  • Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of microbubble bathing of lower extremities on peripheral circulation. Methods: Data were obtained in six healthy subjects under three exposure conditions of footbathing (for a duration of 10 min at a water temperature of 33±1 °C) with microbubbles, macrobubbles, and control or no bubbles. Skin blood flow (measured from right foot) and skin temperature (measured at both hands and left foot) were recorded continuously for a… CONTINUE READING
