AIM Spectroscopic measurement using near-infrared spectroscopy and red laser lights was performed to investigate the blood volume (total haemoglobin; THb) and oxygen saturation (oxygenated haemoglobin saturation; StO2) of the human Achilles tendon during single and repetitive isometric contractions. METHODS Twelve men performed isometric plantar flexion exercises at intensities of 10% (3 min), 30% (2 min), 50% (1 min) and 70% (30 s) of the maximum voluntary contraction (MVC).
