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

Availability: In stock

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.


The basis of occlusion training, is that we are aiming to minimise the venous outflow from a muscle, while also reducing the arterial inflow (shown in early studies by Takarada et al., 2000, and Takarada et al., 2002). Subsequently what happens is that we get changes in:


Muscle oxygenation


Fibre type recruitment


Metabolic accumulation


Growth hormone response


Stimulation of protein synthesis


Muscle growth inhibitors

Description

Details

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.

 

There are a number of features that allow the user flexibility and freedom to wear the Occlusion Cuffs in a number of ways during training. The J-clip feature allows the user to disconnect the pump and gauge during their training, while maintaining cuff pressure.

 

The gauge design allows it to be worn on shorts/trouser when training when training, although caution is recommended to minimise the risk of dislodging and damaging the gauge.

 

The string-tie feature allows the user to hold the pump and gauge system in place at the level of the cuff if desired, by tying them to the Occlusion Cuff.

 

The string-ties can also be used to prevent slippage of the cuff layers where necessary, although this can also be prevented by ensuring that the cuff layers are wrapped snugly around a limb before inflating.

 

STUDIES

The results indicated that low-intensity resistance exercise causes, in almost fully trained athletes, increases in muscle size, strength and endurance, when combined with vascular occlusion.
