2. Using the KAATSU Cycle 2.0 – Turning On and Off

For who? Tactical athletes, physical therapists, KAATSU Specialists
For what? Recovery

KAATSU was invented by Dr. Yoshiaki Sato of Tokyo, Japan in a flash of inspiration in 1966.

After decades of self-experimentation, testing at the University of Tokyo Hospital, and vetting by hundreds of physicians, academic researchers and scientists in Japan and China, KAATSU was introduced in the United States in 2014. KAATSU the Original BFR has since expanded to 48 countries around the world with many users expected to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games – thereby, bringing back a Japanese invention to Tokyo where it all began.

The KAATSU Cycle 2.0 is the most recent culmination of over 50 years of expertise of Dr. Sato, his medical and scientific colleagues and collaborators, and thousands of coaches, therapists and trainers worldwide.

It can fit in the palm of your hand or in your pocket, but it also has a clip so you can use it in the gym or while walking, running, spinning, skating, stretching or doing any number of movements from yoga to physical therapy.

To turn on and off the KAATSU Cycle 2.0, press the ON/OFF button on a Long Hold (3 seconds).
