Breaking News: Co-founder and CEO of KAATSU won the coveted SCAR Buckle for being the fastest male swimmer. How? KAATSU Training.

What is KAATSU®?

  • Invented in Japan, engineered and designed in California, KAATSU® is the pioneer in the emerging Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) market that automatically and safely optimizes blood circulation for health, fitness, rehabilitation, and recovery.
  • KAATSU® is a small automated compressor and pneumatic, stretchable bands which are placed around your arms or legs.
  • The bands inflate and deflate in a patented sequence based on algorithms that boost circulation, improve hormonal balance, and develop muscle tone in a time-effective manner with a minimum of effort.
  • KAATSU® equipment and proprietary protocols offer unparalleled performance, precision, and safety for users of all ages, fitness levels, and walks of life - and can be used anywhere anytime to help you Recover Faster, Rehab Stronger and Perform Better.
  • KAATSU® can be performed anywhere anytime by anyone.

KAATSU® was scheduled to be exhibited and demonstrated at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic & Paralympic Games and the 2021 Department of Defense Warrior Games, but the pandemic precluded these demonstrations. KAATSU will continue to assist our wounded, ill, or injured teammates in the U.S. military with our partner, Operation Healing Forces.
