Stressor: Leg/Arm cuff (LACS)

The Leg Arm Cuff System intends to apply occlusion to different limbs in order to stimulate the cardiovascular system.

The system is composed of:

  • a main unit providing power adaptation, pressure generation/release, control and processing,
  • the leg and arm cuffs (right and left) for pressure application on the subject (Velcro),
  • pneumatic connection via rubber tubes.
  • Controlled pressure application from 0-300 mm Hg.
  • Duration of occlusion from 5s-30mn application up to 20 steps.
  • 2 different pressure levels at the same time on 2 different cuffs.
