Occlusion Cuff
Excl. Tax: €130.00 Incl. Tax: €159.90

Availability: In stock

The Occlusion Cuff Elite is used my most elite sporting organisations internationally e.g England Rugby, All Blacks Rugby, Arsenal FC, Manchester City FC, English Institute Of Sport, Sydney Giants etc. It is often used for periods of deloading, in rehabilitation post surgery, to prevent muscle atrophy and also to cause hypertrophy in joint compromised athletes.


Cuff dimensions are 100 x 8 cm with a 40cm extension. The design allows the Occlusion Cuffs to be used with even the largest limb sizes, while also fitting comfortably on lighter athletes.


Blood Flow Occlusion for Injury Rehabilitation
 
One of the most optimal situations to use blood flow occlusion training is early stage rehab. This where a patient/ athlete is in a phase of injury rehabilitation where they cannot perform exercises of above 60% 1rm.


Blood flow occlusion training allows patients/ athletes to perform low load resistance training allowing them to avoid as much strength loss and muscle atrophy in the early phases of rehabilitation.

Studies have shown benefits post such injuries as ACL Reconstruction, Knee Arthroscopy, osteochondral fracture as well as other lower limb injuries.

How does it work:

Blood flow restriction/ occlusion training is a training method involving the use of cuffs or wraps placed around a limb during exercise, to maintain arterial inflow to the muscle while preventing/ reducing venous return.

 

The primary mechanisms by which Occlusion Training improves strength and hypertrophy include an increase in growth hormone concentration (Patterson, Leggate, Nimmo, & Ferguson, 2013; Takarada et al., 2000) and an accumulation of metabolites due to the anaerobic conditions created in the muscle (Loenneke, Fahs, Rossow, Abe, & Bemben, 2012). Alongside the hypoxic conditions created by Occlusion Training it also increases fast twitch fibre recruitment and motor unit firing rate due to the lack of available oxygen for the slow twitch fibres and the need to compensate for the deficit in force (Loenneke et al., 2010; Moritani et al., 1992).

 

The Occlusion Cuff Elite:

 

The Occlusion Cuff Elite consists of 2 inflatable cuffs and a gauge to allow individualised pressures to be achieved. After inflating the gauge can then be removed to allow more freedom of movement to perform exercises. The cuffs have been developed to enable them to be used on both the upper and lower limbs. 


Blood Flow Occlusion for Injury Rehabilitation
 
One of the most optimal situations to use blood flow occlusion training is early stage rehab. This enable the athlete to work at levels of 20% of their 1RM and achieve similar gains to heavy resistance training (Madarame et al., 2008; Yamanaka, Farley, & Caputo, 2012) . Occlusion Cuff adaptions also occur at a relatively faster rate than traditional resistance training (Abe et al., 2005; Cook, Kilduff, & Beaven, 2014)

Risks?

There is no evidence to suggest that Occlusion training poses any risks to healthy participants who. In fact the physiological responses to BFR training are very similar to those seen in regular physical activity.

 

Studies have shown benefits post such injuries as ACL Reconstruction, Knee Arthroscopy, osteochondral fracture as well as other lower limb injuries.
