“Please remember to Pressure Calibrate Before Training To Avoid Pressure Drop During Exercise!”
Considerations before attachment
Always start by using the web app at training.fitcuffs.com 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 – See our page Web App Explained for more information. 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 & Inflation of the cuffs
1. Before inflation, ensure that all cuffs must be completely empty – deflated. – This is very 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 underneath 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.
For a proper fit and to avoid pressure drop during exercise you should “calibrate the pressure”, by contracting the relevant muscles several times while the Fit Manometer is still attached. Please repeat this pressure calibration to avoid pressure drop during exercise. The goal pressure should be measured in a complete resting state, by placing the weight on the opposite leg or resting the arm, respectively. For customers who have purchased Complete & Performance models, be aware of left and right version of your cuffs. Please check the videos on this page for you to distinguish left and right versions for fast and convenient attachments.
Remember to utilize the custom fit for the Leg Cuffs V3 as they can be slightly adjusted to the shape of the thigh
Velcro strap placement for cone / tapered and straight thighs
