HOW TO HEAL: Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy


Healing Time with BFST

The safest, most effective way to recover from most injuries is to use the body's natural healing process. However, simply letting your body heal on its own can take months, and leaves you vulnerable to re-injury. You can accelerate this process however by improving your blood flow, which will drasticly reduce the treatment time and risk of re-injury.

Many people perform physical activity to try and increase their circulation. However, this can be very dangerous as it opens you up to chronic re-injury. In order to recover, you need to be both at rest and increasing blood flow.

The best way to improve circulation while keeping you safe from re-injury is to use a Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™(BFST®) device. These devices are worn like wraps about the injured body part, and use EMR technology to increase circulation even at rest. BFST® wraps are able to reduce overall recovery time, enabling you to heal from your injury faster and more effeciently.

Healing Time with BFST

You are injured when the tissue in your body is damaged. Your body has the ability to heal itself, and if given time will fix the wound on its own. The body requires rest and cannot be stressed while it is in the process of recovery. However, most people do not have the time in their busy schedules to rest and let themselves heal for long periods of time.

The solution to this problem is to increase the flow of blood to the injured area. Blood carries essential nutrients and oxygen to tissue that gives it the energy to repair damage. By improving circulation, you can bring more mending power to the injured area, decreasing the total treatment time.

Normally to increase your blood flow you need to exercise or other physical activity regularly. For someone who has been recently injured, though, this is dangerous! Re-injury is a very real problem, and if you re-injure yourself you are sent back to where you started.

Using a BFST®, however, has no risk of re-injury compared to physical activity and exercises. BFST® can be used as a safe, effective means of improving circulation, with no effort required. You can stay completely at rest while using the wrap.

Each BFST® is enclosed in a soft Neoprene wrap, designed for a comfortable treatment experience. During treatments, the BFST® has a feeling of warmth; a feeling many enjoy while at the same time treating their injury in the best way possible. The shape of the wrap is far from generic; each wrap is crafted with a specific body part in mind for the best fit possible. The flexible design of BFST® wraps allows you to move the treatment area and not be inhibited by the wrap, so the things you want to do don't have to be put on hold during treatment.

While some people may feel a warm sensation using the wrap, BFST® is not a heating pad, but something much better. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ medical devices emit penetrating stimulating energy into your injured tissue. The energy reaches deep under the skin to stimulate bloodflow at the source instead of just the surface like hot pads do. BFST® medical devices provide the superior healing power of Energy Web® technology, without getting hot like heating pads do.

Electromagnetic radiation

Electromagnetic fields (and EMR) even at low frequency are cited in various studies (see Bioinitiative, for example) as harmful to the human body (a carcinogenic, etc.). Since the BFST wraps involved electromagnetic energy, how are they safe? I'm sincerely interested in your products. Thanks.

Re: Electromagnetic radiation

Hi there, Thanks for your enquiry Jay. We have lots of information about the BFST on our Forum (and our website - how it works, information about the technology, its safety and efficacy, our belief in producing the highest quality products possible, as well as the fact that the BFST is an FDA and Health Canada registered Medical Device (meaning the device has undergone tonnes of R&D, is safe to use and that we can substantiate our claims). You can absolutely rest assured that the BFST is completely safe :)

The below information has been copied from elsewhere on the Forum, but I think you'll find it of interest as it gives a good insight into what the BFST device is and what you can feel. Also take a look at the link underneath, as this should further help put your mind at rest about any health and safety concerns.

"The BFST is a diathermic device that stimulates sub-dermal tissue. It will stimulate blood flow deep within the soft tissue, providing nutrient-rich blood and optimized blood flow to the area being treated. This energy does not penetrate to your bones. Diathermy is well recognized and accepted by the medical community as an effective means of promoting sub-dermal blood flow in order to speed up healing and recovery times.

The BFST product uses proprietary technology and is an advanced diathermic device over older technology like Ultrasound. For example, you would probably treat yourself with Ultrasound for 10-15 minutes at a power level of about 1W over a very small area. With the BFST you would be treating yourself for 20 minutes at a time, with about 10W of energy, using the unit over a much larger target area. That's 10x the power for a longer duration. And the treatments promote the blood flow for a longer period after treatment. It is also much safer than Ultrasound (as there is no risk of small, localized sub-dermal tissue damage) and does not interfere with implanted medical devices like Microwave and Shortwave devices do. It's really just newer technology that does a much better job.

Our Energy Webs produce Electro-Magnetic Energy (EMR) well below the more dangerous visible light frequencies, (within the ultra-safe bands of the EMR spectrum at very safe power levels), at a frequency that is far above the highly magnetic frequencies like Shortwave. We feel our technology is superior to Shortwave, Ultrasound, Microwave and IR LED.

The Energy Web transmitter is flexible and has been ergonomically shaped to form fit. The Wrap is form-fitting, supportive and manufactured to medical quality standards. In fact, our devices are FDA and Health Canada registered, and King Brand Healthcare Products is an FDA registered and a Health Canada certified medical company.

During treatment some users experience a heating sensation, but the device is NOT a heating pad. A heating pad merely heats the surface of the skin whereas the BFST device penetrates deep below the skin to stimulate blood flow. BFST improves circulation and promotes faster healing - Heating pads don't.

King Brand is constantly investing in R&D and one key focus of the product development behind our Energy Web is to find ways to increase the diathermic output, while simultaneously reducing the amount of heat the device produces. There is still some heat produced by the device as a bi-product of generating our diathermic energy, but we are always trying to reduce this undesirable component of the process. That we design our product to produce as little heat as possible is the most significant difference between BFST and heating pad technology - The two technologies have diametrically opposed modes of operation.

We recommend all new users start their BFST treatments at Level 1. If a heating sensation is experienced, the level used should be decreased until heating is no longer present during a treatment. Only then should the next level be used. The heat bi-product of BFST treatments works to lessen the effectiveness of BFST, so better results are gained at a lower setting where no heat is felt rather than when the area feels warm. There is no need to move up quickly in levels; many people never treat themselves at Level 3.

Unfortunately some people find the heat soothing and this encourages them to move up levels prematurely.  It's not harmful to do this, so if you find pain relief from the warmth of a session this isn't going to cause harm, you just won't get as much blood flow benefit from each treatment; flushing the area with blood from heating interferes with the device's ability to penetrate deeply."

Feel free to also take a look at Topic: fda registered products ; which has a great flow of information relating to questions that come up relating to our BFST claims and how the FDA fits in. Also, if you'd like to call us toll free on 1844-400-2525 we're always happy to help.

Re: Electromagnetic radiation

Thanks much for your response. Very helpful.

Just one more question: could explain what you mean by the following paragraph from your post:

  Our Energy Webs produce Electro-Magnetic Energy (EMR) well below the more dangerous visible light frequencies, (within the ultra-safe bands of the EMR spectrum at very safe power levels), at a frequency that is far above the highly magnetic frequencies like Shortwave. We feel our technology is superior to Shortwave, Ultrasound, Microwave and IR LED.

In one case at first part of paragraph, it seems to be good to have a low frequency, and for the other, a much higher frequency ("far above"). How does such work?

Many thanks.
