Equipment Evaluation and Research Services

Equipment Evaluation

Beautiful Southwest Montana is not only a great location for a variety of training but also an outstanding research laboratory. The Peak team has helped test and provided evaluation for a number of companies and products including Polaris Defense, Revision Eye wear, Mizuno cold weather apparel, and fellow Montana small business Cold Avenger. The location of our headquarters along with the Peak team’s experience provides the ideal environment for realistic, high-altitude, testing of the gear people count on when it matters most. Historically, our client base has been military special operations and tactical law enforcement and our Equipment Evaluation clients will get real-time feedback from potential customers in their target markets. That alone is an invaluable development tool and gives our training service clients the ability to try new equipment before they make large purchases.

Research and Development Support

Not only do we get to train the best to be better but we have also enjoyed opportunities to help develop better products and practices. Our Research and Development Support Division supports various research projects including Dr. Robert Roach’s high altitude research for the University of Colorado, the U.S. Navy Weapons Support Center (Crane), and the Colorado Altitude Training’s hypoxic rooms. Dr. Robert Roach, PhD, the Altitude Research Center’s Associate Director and Director of Research, and Dr. Susan Borjesson are The Peak’s exercise physiologists. They conduct, in conjunction with the Peak’s staff, research projects in high altitude physiology, nutrition, and exercise performance. Two research projects that are ongoing and The Peak is very involved with are the National Center for Health Care Informatics – Next Generation Personnel Recovery Simulator Project and the Montana Overland Research Foundation’s (MORF) human performance project.

A unique Peak Inc. product is the High Altitude Profiling program. Dr. Susan Borjesson, an exercise physiologist specializing in high altitude physiology developed the Individual Altitude Profile. This profile is completed during operational training at moderately high altitude and measures each individual’s ability to perform in high and very high altitude environments. Data collection involves simple non-invasive oxygen saturation measurement as well as blood lactate measurement collected through a series of capillary blood samples. This profile was developed based upon statistical analysis of a database created from multiple individuals with various high altitude efficacies. This allows for the measurement of an athletes' unique response to altitude (i.e. SpO2% relative to altitude and heart rate, blood lactate levels, and the presence/absence of Acute Mountain Syndrome during specific high altitude tasks) and the ability to acclimate in the high altitude environment. The Individual Altitude Profile utilized by military Special Operations teams as well as recreational climbers, to help identify high altitude performance as well as to develop a science-based acclimatization training strategy unique to each individuals’ physiological system.
