How It Works
Blood Flow Moderation
KAATSU safely reduces venous flow, leading blood to pool in your limbs longer than normal.
During KAATSU capillaries lengthen and expand to help improve circulation and vasuclar elasticity.
Nitric Oxide Production
KAATSU leads to production of VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) and nitric oxide in the body.
Nitric oxide allows blood vessels to constrict and relax, and also regulates the inflammatory cells in the blood vessel walls.
Lactic acid builds up in the muscle causing the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone
Growth hormone is secreted in large amounts activating the body's metabolism.
See It In Action
The KAATSU equipment applies moderate compression on the upper arms and upper legs. The pneumatic KAATSU Air Bands serve the opposite function of a tourniquet (i.e., it helps blood in the limbs, not out of the limbs). This engorges the limbs with blood that leads to a cascade of safe and natural physiological reactions in the body.
