- SAFETY COMES FIRST -
B STRONG IS DESIGNED
"NOT TO OCCLUDE BLOOD FLOW"
B STRONG - THE SAFEST BFR SYSTEM OF ITS KIND
The B Strong Training SystemTM was created with safety and efficacy in mind by Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen, Sports Doctor, Exercise Physiology and Trainer for Sport Performance. B StrongTM is specifically designed NOT TO OCCLUDE (stop) blood flow to the limb, making it the safest BFR system of its kind and can be used anytime, anywhere by anyone to optimize overall fitness.
As this doppler ultra sound video shows, the B Strong Training SystemTM uses uniquely designed bands that maintain arterial inflow when safety rules, cautions, and guidelines are followed. On the other hand, blood pressure cuffs and surgical tourniquets, which have sometimes been used for BFR training, occlude blood flow to the limbs. Avoiding occlusion of arterial inflow to a limb mitigates against the root cause of serious complications.
Patent Pending Design of B Strong's Band
B Strong's unique patent pending design is intended to slow down the blood flow and never to occlude blood flow. This is achieved thru:
flexible, elastic and inflatable material used in the inside of the band
accurate pneumatic mechanism of the band with ability to measure exact pressure inside the band
air pocket design which always allowing blood to flow between each air pocket when band is inflated
With B Strong's unique patent pending design, and proper bands placement - B Strong BFR training can be performed safely.
We do not recommend a pregnant woman start B Strong TrainingTM sessions during her pregnancy. Seek the advice of your doctor if you have other concerns about B Strong Training SystemTM during or after pregnancy.
