Delfi’s state-of-the-art PTS Personalised Tourniquet System for Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) has been specifically designed to safely regulate and control tourniquet pressure for Blood Flow Restriction applications. The PTS Personalised Tourniquet System for Blood Flow Restriction is intended for use on those patients for whom a physician or physician’s designated licensed health care practitioner has indicated perioperative blood flow restricted exercise.
The PTS for BFR system is based on Delfi’s proven surgical tourniquet instruments and cuffs, and includes advanced personalisation and safety features developed specifically for BFR applications.
Delfi’s patented Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP) technology allows a patient specific LOP to be measured and automatically calculates the patient’s Personalised Tourniquet Pressure (PTP) as percentage of LOP.
BFR Pressure Application Timer
An easily adjusted BFR pressure application timer controls the length of time that the cuff will remain pressurised and for safety automatically deflates the cuff when the application time elapses. A clearly visible digital display of pressurisation time remaining is shown.
Reperfusion Timer for BFR
After a BFR cuff pressurisation cycle is completed, a programmable reperfusion timer prevents the cuff from being pressurised again until the reperfusion time has elapsed, helping ensure adequate time between pressurisation cycles for limb reperfusion.
BFR Compliance Monitor
The BFR compliance monitor automatically records key tourniquet parameters including: Limb Occlusion Pressure, Personalised Tourniquet Pressure, cuff inflation pressures, pressure application time and number of pressurisation cycles.
Advanced Pressure Regulation
The same advanced pressure regulation technology as used in our surgical tourniquets maintains the cuff near the selected pressure during limb movement.
Audio and visual alarms warn of cuff over and under pressurisation. Self test and calibration test on start-up verify proper instrument operation.
Intuitive User Interface
An easy to read color LCD display along with intuitive controls simplifies the adjustment of key tourniquet parameters.
Integrated Tourniquet Cuff Testing
Cuffs, tubing and connectors may be automatically tested for leaks before or after use.
User configurable default values for PTP percentage, cuff pressure, pressurisation time and reperfusion time make set-up quick and easy.
Battery Back Up
Up to 4 hours of operation with a tested cuff.

Delfi’s Easi-Fit Tourniquet Cuffs for Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)
Delfi’s Easi-Fit Tourniquet Cuffs for Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) are uniquely designed to make cuff application easy and consistent. The contour cuff shape in combination with a patented variable fastener allows a superior personalised fit along both proximal and distal edges of the cuff to help lower limb occlusion pressure.
Easi-Fit Tourniquet Cuffs for BFR are available in three standard lengths 18”, 24” and 34” to accommodate a wide range of limb circumferences.
Matching Limb Protection Sleeves are available to help protect the skin beneath the cuff while the cuff is pressurised.
