Course Description: Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) is a Powerful Tool for the Rehabilitation and Fitness Professional. With Over 160 Peer-reviewed Articles in the Scientific Literature the Efficacy Can Not Be Denied. By Applying a Tourniquetto Exercising Limbs You Can Improve Strength, Hypertrophy and Endurance Changes While Using a Very Light Load Within a Small Space Like an Athletic Training Room or Small Treatment Room. What is the buzz all about surrounding blood flow restriction training (BFR)? You should be asking yourself that as a health professional. With almost 200 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature the efficacy and safety cannot be denied. By applying a pneumatic tourniquet to exercising limbs you can: • Increase strength • Increase hypertrophy • Increase VO2 Max BFR is the act of safely restricting venous blood flow from a working muscle, but allowing arterial blood flow to that working muscle. This is done primarily with low intensity resistance training. Since the ability of that blood to escape is dramatically reduced, metabolic stress and cellular swelling are greatly increased. So what does this mean for you the health professional? • Drastically improve your patients' post-surgical recovery time • Treat muscle atrophy in both acute and chronic pain patients • Use as accessory work into your client programming for less stress on joints and tendons • Increase your endurance athlete’s VO2 Max with as little as 2x/week BFR training • Separate yourself from other clinicians by performing the latest, evidenced-based rehab/exercise program This course will cover: • The wide range of benefits of BFR training • Contraindications to BFR and when and where it should be applied • How to safely screen and assess your patient/client prior to BFR • How to safely apply BFR cuffs for the upper and lower extremity • Compare and contrast different uses of BFR from bed ridden to athletic performance training • Develop and devise a rehab program for your patients and clients Registration Fee: Licensed Provider course: $1,650.00 (Save $249) - (Course + Smart Cuff Clinical Set) Student Course: $1,500.00 (Save $399) - (Course + Smart Cuff Clinical Set) Course Objectives: By the end of the course, attendees will be able to: • Discuss the benefits of blood flow restriction (BFR) training • Discuss Indications and Contraindications of BFR Training • Demonstrate safe and effective placement of BFR cuffs • Compare and contrast different uses of BFR from bed ridden to athleticperformance training • Critically Analyze the utility of BFR in the rehabilitation setting • Develop and devise a training program for a potential patient or client
