Considerations Before Attachment ⬇
  1. Before using Fit Cuffs please consider any relevant safety concerns at this sub-page BFR & Safety Concerns. ⇩
  2. Obtain an appropriate and individualized pressure (mmHg) by the “Calculate Pressure” module at training.fitcuffs.com OR set the pressure as a percentage (40-80%) relative to Limb Occlusion Pressure/Arterial Occlusion Pressure (LOP/AOP) ⇩

2A Calculate Pressure – Set the pressure (mmHg) by the “Calculate Pressure” module:
To use the Calculate Pressure module, you must measure the corresponding circumference of your upper arm or upper thigh, and please remember to do the measurement in a relaxed resting state. Go to the Fit Cuffs Training App at training.fitcuffs.com and use the “Calculate Pressure” module, to acquire a personalized pressure (mmHg) recommendation. We advise You to update the pressure (mmHg) as often as possible. The Calculate Pressure module is a convenient and valid alternative to set the pressures relative to (LOP/AOP) – See Web App Explained for additional information concerning the app.


2B Limb Occlusion Pressure – Set the Pressure (mmHg) relative to LOP via the Bluetooth Device or handheld doppler:
In clinical practice or for individuals with relative contraindications, it is advised to set the pressure relative to LOP. For more information and guides concerning the Bluetooth Device and LOP, please see Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP) by Bluetooth

General Instructions For Attachment & Deflation Of The Cuffs ⬇
  1. Before attachment – Ensure that the cuff is empty (completely deflated). – Please remember to deflate the cuffs after every training session to attain a proper fit of the cuffs! The Fit Manometer (pressure gauge) will deflate the cuffs by turning the valve counter-clockwise. ⇩
  2. Attachment – Slide the cuff through the nylon loop and make sure the metal female connector is facing downwards. For fast and convenient attachments, be aware of the left and right versions of your cuffs which is relevant for the Complete & Performance models. Please check the videos here on this page to distinguish “left” & “right” versions. ⇩
  3. The tension of the cuff – Make sure to have a semi-snug attachment, so that 2-3 fingers can easily pass underneath the cuff. Loose-fitting cuffs will require higher pressure to restrict blood flow and may slide during exercise. A tight-fitting cuff will inhibit muscle contractions and result in excessive pressure fluctuations during muscle contractions. ⇩
  4. Inflation – Close the valve on the Fit Manometer (pressure gauge) by turning it clockwise and attache the male connector to the female connector on the cuff. You will hear a distinct “click” when the Fit Manometer has been connected successfully. ⇩
  5. Pressure calibration – For a proper fit and to avoid pressure drop during exercise you should “calibrate” the pressure (mmHg) within the cuffs. This is done by contracting the corresponding muscles several times while the Fit Manometer (pressure gauge) is still attached – see the video above “Attachment – Inflation & Pressure Calibration”. The goal pressure should be measured in a complete resting state, by placing the weight on the opposite leg or resting the corresponding arm, respectively. “Please remember to Pressure Calibrate Before Training To Avoid Pressure Drop During Exercise!”

Remember to utilize the custom fit for the Leg Cuffs V3, as it can be slightly adjusted to the shape of the thigh
Troubleshooting – Struggling With Decreasing Pressures (Low mmHg) During Exercise ⬇
Focus me with the TAB key
  1. If You’re struggling with pressure leak during exercise, please consider the various reasons for this issue and not an actual “air-leak”: ⇩
  2. When initiating inflation of the cuff the vasculature underneath the cuff will be forced downstream. This effect will only exacerbate when contracting the corresponding muscles reducing the circumference of the limb and thereby a drop in pressure (mmHg). ⇩
  3. The nylon material is semi-elastic and the initial slack of the velcro attachment will lengthen during the first muscle contractions. So, the overall circumference of the cuff will expand initially creating a pressure drop because of this small but significant elongation. ⇩
  4. Sufficient “calibration” is simply imperative to attenuate pressure drop as described above. Contract the relevant muscles several times while the Fit Manometer is still attached and remember to repeat this procedure accordingly. It might take about 1-2 minutes to get the pressure stable before exercising. ⇩
  5. Please also consider, that even though the calibration phase has been done accordingly, You might experience a pressure drop if the cuff moves during exercise. In most cases, this can be attenuated if You remember to completely deflate the cuffs before attachment to attain a proper fit. ⇩
  6. If the initial pressure calibration has been implemented accordingly but pressure drops during exercise, reassess the pressure during training immediately after the first set or interval.
