How KAATSU Works

KAATSU Air Bands apply moderate compression in short durations on the upper arms or upper legs. The pneumatic bands are controlled by the main KAATSU unit. This temporary and rhythmic compression leads to the safe engorgement of the limbs with blood. This causes a cascade of natural beneficial physiological reactions in the body.

Dr. Yoshiaki Sato, inventor of KAATSU, is the pioneer of Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training. KAATSU was tested for a decade on 7000 cardiac patients at Tokyo University Hospital and was found to be safe when used appropriately. KAATSU equipment and protocols are the safest BFR methods available.  Learn More >>
