Stronger client outcomes
Used by health and performance professionals, AirBands leverages the benefits of blood flow restriction (BFR) to reduce the time and intensity required to build muscle and increase strength.
Fully wireless, automated BFR Cuffs, AirBands can help professionals to accelerate training results and manage loads.
Why BFR training?
Blood flow restriction is an effective training methodology that can help individuals build muscle and increase strength, using little or no resistance.
It involves placing a tourniquet around the limb during exercise to restrict the blood flow from the working muscle. This causes a localized hypoxic environment, leading to faster muscle fatigue which results in a multitude of beneficial physiological adaptations.
What does the research say
Research has shown when combined with appropriate training programs, blood flow restriction can:
- Reduce atrophy and muscle loss after long periods of immobilisation
- Improve muscle strength with as little as 30% load
- Enhance aerobic capacity
- Increase muscle hypertrophy with as little as 30% load
- Increase the production of muscle protein synthesis
