Dr. Sato (the inventor of KAATSU) has a vision of helping people stay healthy for their entire lives. To that end, the KAATSU team has worked diligently on creating the technologies needed to make that a reality. The goal of making KAATSU usable by virtually anyone has been realized.
The KAATSU C3 is the latest generation of KAATSU products. It comes with a very detailed manual and clearly outlines the protocols one should use to . You do not have to have KAATSU administered to you by a licensed healthcare professional, like a physiotherapist, rehabilitation specialist, etc. Rather, KAATSU has been designed so people can use it in the comfort of their own homes, while traveling, or practically anywhere.
Before starting KAATSU or any other fitness or exercise program, one should always consult their physician or primary healthcare provider to ensure KAATSU is a good fit.
