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.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through the entire injured area while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed tendon can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for the tendon to heal properly and quickly.
The BFST® Wrap is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on, sit back and relax. Often people notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the affected area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects last up to 4 hours, which means long after your 20 minute treatment is over, the blood keeps flowing and your Tendonitis keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer it lasts and the healthier your tendon gets.
The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits. The reminder of the injury is incredibly important too, because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® device is designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect the affected area from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. Simply disconnect the controller and power adaptor from the wrap and gently tighten the straps. Patients enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® wraps provide and appreciate that they are healing - patients like wearing them, they know it's helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
