Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Healthy Volunteers 1

The study population consists of adult, healthy volunteers randomized into two identical groups.

Intervention: ankle first

Procedure: Ankle first
  1. Brachial blood pressure on both the left and right (BBP-LR) sides is measured, as well as at the left and right ankles (BPA-LR).
  2. A 15 minute walking test (WT) is performed.
  3. BBP-LR and BPA-LR are re-measured.
  4. 2 hours of rest.
  5. BBP-LR and the blood pressure at the left and right big toes (BPT-LR) are measured.
  6. WT is reperformed.
  7. BBP-LR and BPT-LR are re-measured.
Experimental: Healthy Volunteers 2

The study population consists of adult, healthy volunteers randomized into two identical groups.

Intervention: toe first

Procedure: Toe first
  1. Brachial blood pressure on both the left and right (BBP-LR) sides is measured, as well as at the left and right big toes (BPT-LR).
  2. A 15 minute walking test (WT) is performed.
  3. BBP-LR and BPT-LR are re-measured.
  4. 2 hours of rest.
  5. BBP-LR and the blood pressure at the left and right ankles (BPA-LR) are measured.
  6. WT is reperformed.
  7. BBP-LR and BPA-LR are re-measured.

Detailed Description:

Our secondary objectives are:

  • to evaluate the concordance between left- and right-side measures: systolic pressure indices measured at the toe after a walking test (healthy volunteers)
  • to evaluate the concordance between left- and right-side measures: systolic pressure indices measured at the ankle after a walking test (healthy volunteers)
  • to evaluate the concordance of the variation in systolic pressure indices measured at the toe and ankle during the recuperation phase after a walking test (5 and 10 minutes after end of walking test) in healthy volunteers
