Safely Enjoy the Benefits of BFR
The B Strong training system uses uniquely designed bands that maintain arterial inflow when safety rules, cautions and app guidelines are followed. By contrast, blood pressure cuffs and surgical tourniquets, which are sometimes used for BFR training, occlude blood flow to the limbs. Avoiding occlusion of arterial inflow to a limb mitigates the root cause of serious complications.
