Please remember to deflate the Leg Cuffs Completely while still attached!

Considerations before attachment

Always start by using the App “Fit Cuffs Training” to find your “Calculated Pressure” as an alternative to set the pressure relative to Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP) – See our page LOP by Bluetooth for more information.You are recommended to update the pressure (mmHg) as often as possible. When you measure the circumference of your upper arm or upper thigh, remember to measure directly on the skin in a relaxed condition and before exercising.

General instructions for attachment

1. Before inflation, ensure that all cuffs must be completely empty – deflated. NOTE – It is important to deflate the cuffs after every use for optimal fitting for the subsequent training!

2. Slide the cuff through the nylon loop and make sure the valve is facing downwards.

3. Tension the cuff and secure the strap for a semi-snug application, they should fit tight so that 2-3 fingers can pass underneatht the cuff.

A loose cuff will require higher pressure to restrict blood flow and may slide during exercise. A too tight cuff wont allow for muscle expansion during exercise.

Inflation of the cuffs

For a proper fit and to avoid pressure drop during exercise, remember to contract the relevant muscles several times while the Fit Manometer is still attached. The goal pressure should be measured in a complete resting state, by placing the weight on the opposite leg or resting the arm, respectively.
