  What is Isotonic?
Isotonic is a word, and that's all, to a lot of people.
The fluid pressure of food or Isotonic solutions across semi-permeable membranes, such as the walls of the small intestine, is generally referred to as having a particular osmolarity or tonicity.
Isotonic products are formulated with the proper balance of fructose, d-glucose, citric acid, potassium bicarbonate and other key ingredients to assure that they are isotonic when properly prepared.

 Isotonic - Memory Foam
Isotonic's ultra dense Visco-Elastic Foam is this material: a revolutionary heat and pressure sensitive substance that forms a soft yet precise mold around your body, while offering firm support at a deeper level.
Isotonic material is Visco-Elastic and made up of billions of spherical shaped, open cells that are temperature and weight sensitive, allowing it to become softer in warmer areas (where your body is making the most contact with the surface) and remain firmer in cooler areas (where less body contact is being made).
Isotonic material has a pure density of 4.0 lb/ft. Isotonic is trusted, "preferred" and carried by the largest retail chains and mail order catalog companies in the world.

 Isotonic exercise presented in Science section
In exercise science isotonic contraction is a contraction in which the tension remains constant as the muscle shortens or lengthens.
The key to isotonic exercise is that although the weight is constant the speed of movement associated with the exercise is variable.
Although the reliability of isotonic exercise is generally good, controlling the inertial forces that develop with different lifting techniques make it inappropriate for the study of musculoskeletal performance in humans (Sapega 1990).

 Isotonic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An isotonic cellular environment occurs when an equal solute concentration exists inside and outside the cell.
An isotonic solution has an equal amount of dissolved solute in it compared to the things around it.
Typically in humans and most other mammals, the isotonic solution is 0.9 weight percent (9 g/L) salt in aqueous solution, this is also known as saline, which is generally administered via an intra-venous drip.

 Isotonic Delivery System
Solutions of food that enter the small intestine for absorption and utilization are made isotonic in the stomach by the body.
Often the longer it takes for the tablet or capsule, to disintegrate, the nutrients to dissolve and equilibrate to the proper state (isotonic) to leave the stomach.
When the sensors in the G-I tract detect that the ingested solution is isotonic, the valve at the lower end of the stomach remains open and the solution goes immediately into the small intestine and absorption is completed.

 Crank Sports e-Fuel - The First Liquid Concentrate Isotonic Sports Drink
Depending on the concentration, an ingested fluid can be either hypertonic (more concentrated than your body fluids), isotonic (equal in concentration to your body fluids) or hypotonic (less concentrated than your body fluids).
Isotonic solutions can also provide rapid hydration, and they have the potential advantage of bringing significant energy and electrolyte replacement benefits into the cellular system.
Equally as important is the rate at which energy is delivered to your body, and e-Fuel's sustained energy formula is designed to avoid blood sugar fluctuations that lead to the dreaded "bonk".

 Isotonic solutions, Module 10   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Pharmaceutical solutions that are meant for application to delicate membranes of the body should be adjusted to approximately the same tonicity as that of the body fluids.
Isotonic solutions cause no swelling or contraction of the tissues with which they come in contact, and produce no discomfort when instilled in the eye, nasal tract, or other body tissues.
Hence, the preparation is not isotonic, it is hypotonic.

Isotonic muscle contraction causes a rise in the heart rate and a marked increase in stroke volume that results in an increase in cardiac output and a net decrease in peripheral resistance (due to vasodilatation of contracted muscles).
As with the isotonic dynamic exercise, the intensity, frequency, and duration of isometric static exercise must be established for each patient individually, according to the results of the prior medical evaluation (see Medical evaluation).
As a preliminary exercise prior to isotonic or isometric training, PROM should be performed during the first warm-up and the last cool-down phases.

 Isotonic Nebulized Magnesium Sulfate for Asthma
According to Richard Beasley, MD, “isotonic nebulized magnesium sulfate has a number of possible mechanisms of action in addition to its established role as a smooth muscle relaxant.
The study by Dr. Beasley and his colleagues included 52 adult patients with severe asthma who were randomized to receive 2.5 mg of nebulized albuterol mixed with either 2.5 mL isotonic nebulized magnesium sulfate or isotonic nebulized saline; the drugs were administered at three 30-minute intervals.

 Text Site | Out There | Food Technology | Isotonic Drinks
Isotonic drinks are used by endurance athletes to help them replace some of the water they lose by sweating both during and after an event.
Isotonic drinks are often preferred to water by athletes because they contain a small amount of carbohydrate (less than 8%) and sodium.
You don’t have to be sponsored by a major sports manufacturer to be able to afford isotonic drinks – in fact you can can make your own very easily:

A solution, such as Uriage Thermal Water is isotonic if its osmotic pressure, related to its molecular concentration, is the same as that of plasma.
The cells shrink, because water flows out into the more concentrated solution (phenomenon of plasmolysis).
An isotonic solution sets up an "osmotic pressure" equilibrium within cells such as the plasma, which surrounds the red blood cells.

 Comparison to Isotonic Foam
First and foremost, I felt that this new memory foam is as good, and perhaps better, in quality than the Isotonic.
It is a bit springier feeling than the Isotonic, which I like, and my testers also did prefer our new memory foam as well - and they had all loved Isotonic previously.
So while I was reluctant to switch memory foams after having had good experiences with the Isotonic, I really feel that my Healthy Foundations line is the most comfortable topper pad and pillow line I've ever carried.
