BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are NOT wraps or braces designed to simply lessen joint strain.
King Brand Healthcare Products® are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). For rapid healing of Tendonitis and Tendinosis, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the tendon, which are required for the body to heal itself. Since Tendonitis causes your tendon to become inflammed, blood flow to the area is impaired. When blood flow is impaired, healing takes much longer. Physical activity brings blood flow to the area, which speeds healing, but activity is typically the cause of Tendonitis and can lead to further tendon damage. You want to heal the tendon but you also want to rest the tendon to avoid re-injury. Using BFST® is the ultimate solution. You can rest your tendon and speed up the healing process at the same time. Regular BFST® treatments while at rest will stimulate blood flow to your injury and help heal your Tendonitis.
Keep using BFST® even after you think you have healed. The healing process takes much longer than most people realize. Even after you "feel better" your tissue may only be 30-40% healed. If you want your tissue to heal completely, you need to rest and use BFST®. Use BFST® for months even after you've healed to maintain the healing that has taken place. Once you get back to doing the activities that you did before becoming injured, use BFST® before the activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system and will prevent against re-injury.
