How KAATSU Works

 Special air bands are worn on the upper legs and arms to safely modify blood flow. Two compressors inflate the air bands and once optimal pressure settings have been established, light training produces an engorgement of blood in the arms/legs and a variety of positive physiological effects in a short period of time, such as:

  • Disruption of homeostasis

  • Increase of nitric oxide in blood vessels, increasing their elasticity

  • Fast and slow twitch muscles are toned simultaneously

  • Lactic acid increases, stimulating receptors in the muscle and leading to elevated levels of growth hormone.

Safe, accelerated muscle development during rehabilitation; imagine what KAATSU could mean for your athletes.
