For who? Tactical athletes, physical therapists
For what? Recovery
Purple Heart recipient Joe Lowrey of Long Beach Wilson High School in Long Beach, California has been using KAATSU daily for nearly two years.
While serving with the 7th Special Forces Group on July 7th 2014, the U.S. Army Green Beret took a bullet to the head in 2014 (read his story here). The injury occurred during Lowrey’s third deployment as he was manning the gun turret on top of a truck during an intense firefight against Taliban insurgents.
After surprising his colleagues and the medical staff in hospitals in Afghanistan and Germany, then later the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. by surviving the traumatic brain injury, his ability to do simple movements – standing up, walking, using his left arm – was significantly hampered or impossible.
But after two years of twice daily KAATSU Cycles and KAATSU Constant (morning and night on both arms and legs), the retired Sergeant 1st Class has improved dramatically, both physically and cognitively.
“I started eating right, going keto, and getting good sleep,”
“I use all kinds of biohacks, but I always try to do KAATSU in the morning with my caregiver and before I go to bed at night. I jokingly tell my buddies that Dave Asbrey of Bulletproof took my name. I am the one who is bulletproof.”
