Hytro Announce First Study into Blood Flow Restriction Using Patented TechWear

Research underpins everything we do at Hytro. Our BFR integrated TechWear was developed alongside scientists and fitness experts to ensure it is safe, comfortable and easy-to-use. We’ve taken the learnings from over 1,000 research papers on BFR and applied them to our products. When it comes to scientific credibility, no other BFR brand goes further.

We’re excited to announce our first scientific study into Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training using Hytro TechWear, performed by Queen Mary’s University London (QMUL) and currently underway.

Now, more than ever, we believe it is vitally important to explore the capability of BFR so that the scientific literature can evolve even further. Our study with QMUL will therefore seek to determine the safety, feasibility and efficacy of Hytro TechWear .

Overseen by Dr. Brad Neal of QMUL, the study will be run by two fourth year QMUL medical students. For a six-week period, they will monitor the progress of 30 participants (15 male and 15 female) who have never used BFR before, and who will undergo two Hytro BFR training sessions a week.

Testing will take place to assess changes in strength and muscle mass. This will include one rep max, handheld dynamometer readings, jump tests and maximum press-up and air squats. These will be carried out alongside physical measurements such as body mass, height, muscle cross sectional area and body composition.

Founder of Hytro Dr. Warren Bradley said: ‘BFR Research is well established and the research is robust, however the increased utility of Hytro has opened up new areas for research. Our thinking is continuously evolving as we develop relationships with academic institutions and BFR experts across the globe. We aim to pioneer the BFR research space with Hytro - making BFR an accessible way to train, recover, and rehabilitate. We are thrilled to support QMUL, a leading institution for research.’

The Hytro TechWear being used in this study is available to the general public now and can be viewed in our Hytro shop. Further details are available upon request from tim@hytro.com.
