Vasper is a patented health and rehabilitation technology that uses compression and cooling in conjunction with low-intensity exercise to promote systemic health gains and recovery.
Vasper is performed on a low-impact recumbent elliptical with pressurized cuffs worn on the upper arms and legs. The cooling and compression non-invasively stimulates the natural production of anabolic hormones, which have wide-ranging health, rehabilitation and performance benefits.
How it works
Vasper is based on three scientific principles - Cooling, Compression and Interval Training.
Specific muscle compression during exercise results in high concentration of lactic acid, creating the “muscle burn” of a much more intense workout. Once concentration of lactic acid reaches a high enough level, the fast twitch muscles signal the brain to trigger systemic recovery response. This leads to natural release of anabolic hormones such as Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone.
Active liquid cooling during exercise eliminates or minimizes sweating. It increases the blood oxygen levels resulting in enhanced performance. Preventing overheating reduces pain and inflammation, mitigates further physical stress and contributes to increased comfort during exercise.
Interval training is a scientifically proven method to efficiently improve strength, endurance and performance. Each 20 minute Vasper session consists of a warmup and a succession of sprint and rest intervals. The software protocols are fully customizable, designed for precise changes in pressure, resistance and intensity, allowing anyone to benefit regardless of age or physical ability.
