6. Preparing to Use the KAATSU Cycle 2.0 – Placing the KAATSU Air Bands on Your Legs

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

The proper placement of the KAATSU Air Bands is absolutely critical to the safety and efficacy of the KAATSU equipment. There is only one proper position for the KAATSU Air Bands on your lower body.

Place the KAATSU Air Bands over your pants or shorts.

The KAATSU Air Bands on your legs should be placed should be placed above your quadriceps (i.e., front of your leg) and hamstrings (i.e., back of your legs), high up on your legs at an angle near your groin.

Even if you rehabilitating from a knee surgery, or broke your toe or tibia, or want to develop your calf muscles, you still place the KAATSU Air Bands in the same position:

  • above your quadriceps
  • above your hamstrings
  • high up on your legs at an angle (that follows a bikini or briefs line)
  • near your groin

The effects of KAATSU are systemic. That is, there are only two places where you should position the KAATSU Air Bands: on your upper arms and upper legs. Any other location is wrong and can lead to problems.

The pneumatic KAATSU Air Bands must be connected to the KAATSU Cycle 2.0 device with the translucent connector tubes.
