WHAT IS IT?
The KAATSU Cycle Mode is an automated, repeated pressure sequence that allows users to customize both the duration and precise amount of pressure. In this mode, the pneumatic bands apply repeated and progressive periods of compression and decompression on your arms or legs. This distinct, patented feature of KAATSU maximizes safety and effectiveness for all users and purposes, even during passive use.
WHEN TO USE IT?
KAATSU Cycle Mode can be used during exercise, household activities, or at rest anywhere, anytime. The Cycle Mode is beneficial during warm-ups, recovery from vigorous exercise, rehabilitation of injuries, and for all aspects of athletic performance.
WHAT IS IT?
The KAATSU Constant Mode utilizes sustained pressure in the KAATSU Air Bands that can be set to either preset or customized pressure levels. The KAATSU Constant Mode pioneered BFR training where sustained pressure is applied to the arms or legs leads to systemic effects throughout the body. KAATSU was tested on 7,000+ cardiac rehab patients under the guidance of cardiologists at the University of Tokyo Hospitals over a 10-year period that identified the importance of safely modifying venous blood flow and not occluding arterial blood flow.
WHEN TO USE IT?
The KAATSU Constant Mode is typically used for intense workouts, more complex athletic movements, or as a part of a rehabilitation regime including aqua therapy.
Muscle fatigue, inflammation, and soreness can set in whether you just finished a hard workout or got off a long flight. Recovery is a crucial component of any active lifestyle and using KAATSU to enhance blood flow can help your body feel its best in a shorter period of time.
Whether you undergo surgery, are recovering from an injury, face physical limitations, or experience minor aches and pains, the rehabilitation process can be slow and frustrating. Incorporating KAATSU's noninvasive protocols into your rehabilitation regime reduces muscle atrophy and ensures rapid recovery.
Improve your strength, speed, stamina, and mobility as KAATSU safely moderates blood circulation in order to make your muscles think they're working harder than they actually are, with lighter resistance. KAATSU enhances performance levels and improves overall fitness with less impact on the body.
