KAATSU BFR Bands Design
KAATSU the Original Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) is generically described by Japanese physicians as Blood Flow Modification due to a variety of factors including the specific design and engineering of the KAATSU Air Bands.
After 35 years of Research Kaatsu is the World Leader in Blood Flow Restriction Training and is the Only Original BFR device on the market that is following Dr. Sato’s 35 years Research for Safety.
- Stretchable Material for BFR
The Bands are designed to reduce venous flow (blood flow back to the torso).The Bands do not occlude arterial flow (blood flow to the limbs). This is very different from blood pressure cuffs that are specifically designed to occlude (cut off) blood flow to the limbs.
- Patented BFR Width
The Width of the Bands is also much different than a blood pressure cuff (i.e., it avoids arterial flow occlusion). The Bands very importantly allows for ease of movement of the limbs (for walking, running, cycling, calisthenics, physical therapy, swimming, throwing, pulling, pushing or any specific movements required in sports or fitness).
- Unique BFR Function
The Bands include baffles and a stretchable air bladder that inflates uniformly and towards the limb, precisely controlled by the KAATSU monitoring units (e.g., KAATSU Master 2.0, KAATSU Nano, KAATSU Wearables).
- Maximum BFR Safety
The Bands can be immediately deflated by either pushing buttons on the monitoring units, depressing the value on the connectors, or releasing the Velcro on the Bands.
- Safe For All Ages
The Bands and the Devices are specifically designed and engineered to follow the 35 year research of Dr. Sato and the Japanese team.
Users of all ages can use it with maximum safety. The Patented Width, the Stretchable Material, 35 years of Research and the unique BFR function make it the safest BFR bands on the market without any risk of Occlusion (stop the blood flow).
KAATSU Airbands are only available for existing KAATSU users with a Kaatsu device.
