Personalized Blood Flow Restriction
Typically to see improvement in strength and muscle gains, resistance training at >65% of your one-rep max is needed. With PBFR exercise, similar gains are possible at loads as low as 20% of your one-rep max. If you are unable to lift heavy weights or if pain is limiting your ability to perform certain exercises, PBFR could be very helpful.
Personalized Blood Flow Restriction (PBFR) therapy is a form of training that uses a specialized tourniquet system, the Delfi PTS for BFR. The Delfi PTS for BFR is a listed device with the FDA that incorporates safety features including a built-in Doppler system. This system is applied to the upper arm or leg and is adjusted for each individual. With a personalized tourniquet pressure applied, exercises can be performed at lighter loads that creates a significant strength and hypertrophy effect.
