PEAR Sports and KAATSU Global partnered to develop KAATSUfit, the first smartphone app for KAATSU the Original BFR.
Developed by PEAR, the new app provides short videos that explain KAATSU and demonstrate effective multi-function movements and exercises for users of all ages and abilities.
PEAR Sports, the leader in smart digital coaching technology, will continue to develop instructional content for KAATSU users that is of interest to those undergoing physical therapy in the clinic or at home. The same is true for those who are uninjured, healthy and are on the go. KAATSUfit is available for download on both iOS and Android from their respective app stores.
Steven Munatones of KAATSU Global, explains,
“PEAR has created a best-in-class coaching app to make KAATSU’s patented products more understandable for everyone seeking improvements in their fitness and performance as well as those who wish to reduce the time to recover from injuries.
The app will make it more convenient and easier to effectively use KAATSU products and to incorporate the unique benefits of the KAATSU Cycle and KAATSU Constant modes.
Over the course of many years, we have worked with Olympic and professional athletes, paraplegics, and the U.S. military – all have benefited from the original BFR system. Now anyone can easily understand what to do with KAATSUfit.”
KAATSUfit focuses on getting users properly set up and safely and effectively using KAATSU equipment like the KAATSU C3 and KAATSU Cycle 2.0. The app includes demonstrations and exercises featuring Cory Keirn, Doctor of Physical Therapy and a former trainer with Major League Baseball, and Tina Newman, a KAATSU Ambassador and aesthetician, who used the program to reduce the pain of arthritis, tighten loose skin, and become exceptionally fit at 56 years of age. The demonstrations incorporate a variety of fitness equipment, like TRX® straps. The modalities range from easy to difficult, including movements for those with limited mobility and strength, to exercises used by Olympic, professional and tactical athletes.
Newman explained what has happened to her,
“Simply said, KAATSU has healed and helped my body. The ways in which its healed by forearms, wrists, and hands has truly been miraculous and life-changing. At 56, I’m able to continue waxing and doing facial treatments with ease, comfort, and no pain. I used to lay in bed at night with throbbing forearms asking my husband Tim to please rub with strong pressure for any kind of relief.
Separately from the pain relief, there has been the increased in muscular strength and tone as well as enjoying my skin tightening all over my body. This was most surprising to me, especially being an aesthetician in the skin care business for over 30 years. I experienced weight loss after losing my father and husband – a good 15-20 pounds. In our 50’s, it is very difficult to firm and tighten our skin back up due to the lack of collagen, and lack of female hormones.
Lastly, but still so very important to me, is the emotional experience of calmness that has from all the anxiety that I suffered from while Tim was dying and after he passed. I was diagnosed with PTSD and it was terrible. KAATSU has calmed my racing heart and brain and I believe has helped my sleep patterns as well.”
Waynne Dartnall, President of PEAR Sports, added,
“We are thrilled to continue work with the KAATSU team to develop future innovative digital solutions, including AI guided programming that will direct users to the personalized content they specifically need. We’re also looking to jointly develop new content and add even more use cases, especially for chronic care conditions.”
