KAATSU Strong for Amputee Marine Justin Sponaugle
For who? brain injury survivors, paraplegics, quadriplegics, amputees, car accident victims
For what? recovery, strength building, functional movement
Justin Sponaugle is a US Marine whose lower left arm was recently amputated.
Operation Healing Forces granted him a new KAATSU C3 and Sponaugle is putting it to good and immediate use.
John Doolittle, a retired Navy SEAL captain and CRO for KAATSU Global explains, "The mission of Operation Healing Forces (OHF) is to help active-duty and recent veteran wounded, ill and injured Special Operations Forces and their families with mental, physical and emotional healing. Its goal is to help them return to the fight or transition successfully into civilian life. We partnered with OHF to aid SOF and their families by donating 3% of our sales and supply KAATSU equipment to foster rehabilitation, reintegration and resiliency in the Special Operations community."
Sponaugle is one of those individuals with a specific need.
Sponaugle said after his initial use of KAATSU, "After only two KAATSU Cycles (about 12 minutes of pressure on and pressure off on the KAATSU C3 unit), the bone doesn't hurt as much and I can definitely move it with a whole lot less pain. KAATSU improves the circulation on my amputated arm which results in better sensor contact inside my prosthetic - which enables me to move my prosthetic much more efficiently.
At night, before bed, my neuropathic pain is significantly reduced after the KAATSU Cycles.
I have better circulation, better control, and it feels good. This is absolutely amazing and impressive. KAATSU Strong."
