DON'T STOP THE FLOW
(B)STRONG BELTS AND APP ARE DESIGNED TO AVOID TOTAL OCCLUSION
This sequence of images and videos demonstrates that the (B)STRONG BeltsTM maintain some arterial inflow when safety rules, cautions, and app guidelines are followed. On the other hand, blood pressure cuffs and surgical tourniquets, which have sometimes been used for BFR training, occlude at pressures just higher than the person’s systolic blood pressure. Avoiding occlusion of arterial inflow to a limb mitigates against the root cause of serious complications.
- Existing untreated deep vein thrombosis (DVT’s).
- Any on-going medical emergency
- Belt placement on a limb with lymphedema
- If unsure, seek advice of your medical practitioner
We do not recommend a pregnant woman start (B)STRONG TrainingTM sessions during her pregnancy. Seek the advice of your doctor if you have other concerns about (B)STRONG Training during or after pregnancy.
