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 AirBands are designed to reduce venous flow (blood flow back to the torso).The AirBands 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 Kaatsu BFR AirBands is also much different than a blood pressure cuff or a Non Kaatsu BFR band (i.e., it avoids arterial flow occlusion).
Kaatsu BFR Patented AirBands very importantly allow 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
Kaatsu BFR AirBands 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 3.0, KAATSU C4, KAATSU B2).
- Maximum BFR Safety
Kaatsu BFR AirBands can be immediately deflated by either pushing buttons on the monitoring units, depressing the value on the connectors, or releasing the Velcro on the AirBands.
- Safe For All Ages
Kaatsu BFR AirBands and Devices including the whole Kaatsu Method 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 Kaatsu BFR function make it the safest BFR bands on the market without any risk of Occlusion (stop the blood flow).
