Blood Flow Restriction

BFR is a type of exercise with natural and safe manipulation of the body's circulation system. While exercising with the device on, blood exiting your arms and legs is safely slowed down. This reduction in blood flow reduces available oxygen allowing your muscles to fatigue faster with less work.

When the muscle fatigues, a signal is sent to your brain, which results in a natural Human Growth Hormone (HGH) release that is up to 25 times greater than HGH release from regular exercise. These hormones send a signal back to your muscles to stimulate them. This results in strength and muscle gained in a much shorter amount of time.

In the rehabilitation setting, this is especially helpful for people who are unable to perform weight training with heavier weights, since you can accomplish the goal of getting stronger with much less weight.
