BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
King Brand Healthcare Products® are the creators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).
For rapid healing of tendonitis and tendinosis (Tennis Elbow), blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the elbow tendons which are required for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, when you sit still, an inflamed tendon often has restricted blood flow which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow but excessive activity is typically the cause of Tennis Elbow. More activity results in reinjury which further extends the healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops.
With a King Brand® BFST® therapy device for Tennis Elbow, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while the patient is at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of reinjury, patients can recover from Tennis Elbow at surprisingly rapid rates.
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from soft tissue injuries such as lateral epicondylitis. When a professional athlete is injured, they have explicit instructions to rest their injured tendon - no physical activity, no loading of the joint - they are ordered to rest the tendon completely. Injured professional athletes though also are attended to by professional athletic therapists. These pro therapists have always been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process with exercises and stretches, to stimulate blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of that therapy because the more we promote blood flow, the faster the patient will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with the same ailments often take weeks or even months to heal. With the addition of BFST® pro athletes and others who use it are recovering faster than ever.
