Blood Flow Restriction

How It Works

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Rehabilitation is a new training strategy that utilizes a specialized tourniquet system to limit blood flow to the muscle. Research has shown that this technique allows patients to achieve greater gains in muscle strength and hypertrophy while lifting significantly less weight, reducing the overall stress on the limb. Proven to be completely safe in clinical practice, BFR can stimulate muscle growth in populations ranging from the elderly, to the elite athlete, to those with chronic musculoskeletal conditions and can reduce muscle atrophy in the post-surgical patient.
Compared to traditional low-load strengthening, Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation is more effective with less side effects, helping people to get back to doing what they love, faster.
