Two hours of intense exercise in just 21 minutes.
Vasper stands for “Vascular performance”. It is a patented health technology that enables you to reap the benefits of an intensive conventional workout in a short 21 minute low impact session.
The Vasper system combines compression, liquid cooling, and interval training to drive your body’s production of growth and recovery hormones, delivering the most significant benefits of high-intensity exercise. Instead of feeling tired and sore, Vasper leaves you energized and rejuvenated, alleviating your body aches and pains.
“Vasper is my force multiplier tool to achieve optimum fitness, sleep, and vitality without overtraining. I get the benefit of 2 hours of intense exercise in just 21 minutes of low impact workout. The core cooling aspect of Vasper enables me to fully recover in 10 minutes while delivering more oxygen to my body and brain. I love my Vasper, and it’s now a regular part of my priming routine for success.“
1. Compression Technology
Placing compression on the arm and leg muscles while exercising at a low intensity has been scientifically shown to mimic the physiological effect of high intensity exercise.
Vasper compression cuffs worn on your legs & arms compress your muscles to quickly build up lactic acid, this recreates the physiology of an intense workout.
Compression builds metabolite concentration quickly & activates fast twitch muscle fibbers which triggers a systemic recovery response, including the natural release of anabolic hormones such as testosterone.
3. Customized Workouts
Each Vasper workout is a 21 minute interval training protocol, delivered through a tablet that is fully integrated with the recumbent bicycle. Interval training involves a warmup period followed by a succession of sprint and rest intervals. Interval training has been scientifically proven to increase the efficiency & effectiveness of exercise sessions.
The entire interval training protocol is completely customizable; you can adjust duration, intensity, resistance, & speed to optimize your results. Additionally, the cuff pressure and cooling can be adjusted based on ability, comfort level, & performance.
2. Dynamic Cooling
When your body temperature increases, blood vessels near the surface of the skin dilate, increasing blood flow to the skin, leaving less blood and oxygen for the muscles. When muscles lack sufficient blood to remove lactic acid, your body hits a wall and fatigues.
Vasper’s cooling technology allows you to remain cool during exercise. This allows blood oxygen levels to remain high throughout the body which makes exercising much more efficient and pleasant. As a bonus, sweating is also dramatically reduced or in some cases eliminated from the exercise session. Cooling your body during your workout mitigates physical stress & reduces your existing pain and inflammation.
4. Low Impact
Vasper uses the NuStep T5XR Recumbent Cross Trainer. The NuStep T5XR provides a low impact, inclusive, total-body cardiovascular and strengthening workout with a remarkable combination of motivating features and accessibility through its step-through design & resistance levels.
The benefit of this platform is that it accommodates almost any physical limitation while reducing physical breakdown and fatigue. The goal with Vasper is to minimally stress the muscles while still triggering a systemic recovery response that can heal damaged or unconditioned areas of the body.
“The effects on both off-ice training and recovery for our hockey team have been astounding. With the Vasper compression technology we have not only been able to receive a metabolic training effect, but we have been able to utilize the body’s naturally occurring hormones to help rejuvenate muscle tissue, connective tissue, and nerve cells. I would recommend implementing Vasper not only for improvements in metabolic training but as a recovery tool, both in and out of season.”
Impact of Vasper on Testosterone
Testosterone is an important hormone that helps both men & women regulate muscle growth, bone density, fat metabolism, and mood.
Vasper was used in a trial with five professional baseball players. They used the Vasper for only 8 sessions over a two-week period. In this trial, 4 of the 5 participants saw an increase in free testosterone levels, with the average increase being 132% across all participants.
Impact of Vasper on Performance
Vasper was used by the 131st ParaRescue Squadron. ParaRescuemen are elite military operators, who specialize in medical rescue in war zones and remote areas.
The results of the six-week trial showed a significant improvement on military performance tests, such as pull-ups (2.1% increase), run time to exhaustion (17.3% improvement), and heart rate recovery (32.3% improvement).
