During Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) therapy, we use a FDA class 1 medical device on the upper portion of the arm or leg. The device partially constricts blood flow which produces a response from the body that is much like weight training but with significantly less load.
Performing high repetitions of a particular exercise while wearing the Personalize Tourniquet System (PFS) and using light weights allows the patient to receive the strengthening benefits of heavy lifting without overly stressing the joint and tissues healing from injury or surgery.
BFR therapy can be helpful for patients healing from injuries such as ACL reconstruction, knee and hip replacement, rotator cuff tears, and more.
