Our newest development, the PTS Personalized Tourniquet System for Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) has been specifically designed to safely regulate and control tourniquet pressure for Blood Flow Restriction applications.
The patented technology in the PTS for BFR is based on Delfi’s proven surgical tourniquet instruments and cuffs, and includes advanced personalization and safety features developed specifically for BFR applications. Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP) technology allows for a patient specific LOP to be measured, and automatically calculates the patient's Personalized Tourniquet Pressure (PTP) as a percentage of LOP.
The PTS Personalized Tourniquet System for BFR facilitates the safe use of proven BFR rehabilitation training methods and helps provide optimal clinical outcomes. Featuring preset upper and lower limb therapy protocols recommended by Owens Recovery Science for strength, endurance, and cyclic BFR make set-up quick and easy.
(Intended for use on those patients for whom a physician or physician’s designated licensed health care practitioner has indicated perioperative blood flow restricted exercise.)

BFR Pressure Application Timer
An easily adjusted BFR pressure application timer controls the length of time that the cuff will remain pressurized, and for safety automatically deflates the cuff when the application time elapses. A clearly visible digital display of
pressurization time remaining is shown
Advanced Pressure Regulation
The same advanced pressure regulation technology as used in our surgical tourniquets maintains the cuff near the selected pressure during limb movement
12 Preset Protocols
Preset upper and lower limb therapy protocols recommended by Owens Recovery Science for strength, endurance, and cyclic BFR make set-up quick and easy. Key parameters can be adjusted on the spot for automatic personalization
User activated timer counts down pre-programed rest time intervals between sets, visual and audio signals alert user to begin next set
Monitors progress in a protocol by displaying the number of exercise sets and reps as completed
Intuitive User Interface
Easily verify key parameters and therapy session progress. A responsive touch-screen with graphical interactive elements simplifies operation and adjustments
Automatically records key tourniquet parameters including: Limb Occlusion Pressure, Personalized Tourniquet Pressure, cuff inflation pressures, pressure application time and number of pressurization cycles
Reperfusion Timer for BFR
After a BFR cuff pressurization cylcle is completed, a programmable reperfusion timer prevents the cuff from being pressurized again until the reperfusion time has elapsed, helping ensure adequate time between
pressurization cycles for limb reperfusion
Audio and visual alarms warn of cuff over and under pressurization. Self test and calibration test on start-up verify proper instrument operation.
Integrated Leak Testing
Cuffs, tubing and connectors may be automatically tested for leaks before or after use.
Lithium-Ion Battery Back Up
Up to 8 hours of operation with a tested cuff.
