The Science Behind Vasper

Vasper™ is based on three scientifically proven principles – compression technology, liquid cooling, and interval training. The powerful synergy between these three elements is what creates the Vasper™ effect. Compression and cooling create the effect of a high intensity (anaerobic) exercise without the wear & tear, time, effort, or stress it takes to achieve the same results with conventional exercise.
Most Vaspernauts report feeling rejuvenated and energized following their session with no delayed onset of muscle soreness. Vasper™ is more than powerful enough to act as a stand alone work out while being the most powerful compliment to any training or therapy regime. Vasper provides a gentle, low-impact exercise regimen that is kind to joints and muscles, catering to individuals in the midst of physical therapy.

The Vasper System and How it Works

With Vasper™, the compression and cooling create the effect of a high intensity (anaerobic) exercise without the time, effort, and muscle damage it takes to achieve the same results with conventional exercise. Instead of feeling tired and sore, Vasper leaves you energized and rejuvenated, alleviating your body aches and pains.

Vasper is based on three scientifically proven principles – compression technology, cooling and interval training. When all principles are working together, the results are extraordinary.


During the entire workout, liquid cooled compression cuffs concentrate the lactic acid in the muscle tissue to generate a stronger impulse to the pituitary gland, which assists with hormonal balance. The cooling element works simultaneously with the compression, keeping the core body temperature cooler during the workout.

The basic idea is that adding compression to arm and leg muscles during exercise accelerates the activation of the body’s fast-twitch muscles and hastens the buildup of lactic acid, thereby placing the muscles in an anaerobic exercise state.

Rising body temperatures during exercise is a primary limiting factor for performance. Vasper™ liquid cooling simulates the effect of exercising in cool water without getting wet. Cooling during exercise also decreases pain intensity and reduces inflammation.

The low-impact nature of the Vasper™ exercise protocol also leads to decreased wear and tear on the body compared to more physically strenuous routines. That also means the typical delayed muscle soreness that frequently comes after exercise is avoided. This makes the Vasper program highly accessible to those recovering from injury or vulnerable due to age or disease.

The U.S. Navy SEALS, NASA astronauts, Olympic athletes, San Jose Sharks, Stanford University athletes, Ironman athletes, aging athletes, fitness enthusiasts, cardiac patients, and those with spinal cord injuries, among other rehabilitation programs, have used Vasper™.

  • Placing compression on the arm and leg muscles while exercising at a low intensity has been scientifically shown to create the physiological effect of high intensity exercise.

  • Compression cuffs worn on the arms and legs safely compress the muscle to quickly build up lactic acid, mimicking the physiology of an intense workout that would typically take extensive time and effort.

  • Compression builds metabolite concentration quickly and activates fast twitch muscle fibers.

  • This triggers a systemic recovery response, including the natural release of anabolic hormones such as testosterone.

  • Compression accumulates metabolites, such as lactic acid, amplifying the anaerobic exercise signal for muscle growth and repair.

  • Cooling increases efficiency by delivering more oxygen to the muscles and aids in recovery and pain reduction.

  • Customizable software enables interval training to be adjusted to any physical ability level.

  • Low impact Vasper NuStep T5XR platform accommodates almost any physical limitation while reducing physical breakdown and fatigue.


Compression Technology

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 there is not enough blood to remove lactic acid from the muscles, the body hits a wall and fatigues.

  • Remaining cool during exercise allows blood oxygen levels to remain high throughout the body which makes exercising much more efficient and pleasant.

  • Sweating is also dramatically reduced or completely eliminated.

  • Cooling the body during the workout mitigates further physical stress and reduces existing pain and inflammation.
