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 muscle strain.
Most people don't realize this, but blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery for ANY injury. KingBrand Healthcare Products® are innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy(BFST®) which brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the injured area. This blood flow is required for the body to heal your deltoid injury. Unfortunately, with a deltoid tear or strain you are supposed to immobilize it which severely limits natural blood flow. With a KingBrand® BFST® Shoulder therapy device, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while the patient is at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity causing re-injury, patients can recover from their injuries at surprisingly rapid rates.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through the deltoid injury while the patient is at rest. This is very important because while at rest, a strained or torn deltoid 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 muscle tissue to heal properly and quickly. KingBrand Healthcare® BFST® devices actually serve 3 very important functions:
- Promote blood flow and rapid healing in your Deltoid while at rest
- Provide support and moderate bracing for the injured muscle
- Serve to remind the patient that the shoulder is injured and is undergoing healing
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 deltoid from re-injury. This goes a long way towards shortening the recovery time. Patients enjoy the support BFST® shells provide their shoulder 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.
