The KAATSU Nano is a handheld, portable 263g (9.7 oz.) touch-screen device that works with both KAATSU Air Bands and KAATSU Aqua Bands.
The KAATSU Nano provides amounts of compressed air to inflatable KAATSU Air Bands that are strapped around the upper arms or upper legs of users. The KAATSU Nano precisely controls and monitors inflation to the KAATSU Air Bands in order to optimally moderate blood flow in the arms and legs at different levels for low-intensity exercise appropriate to each individual as part of a muscle training, sports-specific or rehabilitation program. It can create pressure as high as 400 SKU (Standard KAATSU Units).
The Nano contains dual air compressors so the KAATSU Air Bands on each limb can be inflated to different pressures. This is especially important when the users are injured or undergoing rehabilitation on one side, or there is an imbalance on one side versus the other. There are several controls in the device and in the software that allow for the immediate deflation of the KAATSU Air Bands. The Nano can be used with standard electrical outlets or run continuously for 2.5 hours on a rechargeable battery.
The Nano has memory capacity to store information on 10 individual KAATSU sessions for up to 10 users. This data includes the specific pressures used, the amount of time spent doing KAATSU, the capillary refill time, and the type of exercises, can be uploaded to and analyzed at the KAATSU database.
The Nano can be automated for specific individual workouts through the KAATSU Cycle function. The maximum time for KAATSU can also be set on both the arms (15 minutes) and legs (20 minutes).
Personal information is displayed on a touch screen that also enables viewing of video files.
