Consider taking part in a research study that is examining two methods of determining the pressure necessary for blood flow restriction exercise. This study is one visit, lasting about 30 minutes. During the visits the amount of pressure needed to fully stop blood flow to your arms and legs will be determined using ultrasound and a manual device and using a software-based algorithm. Participants who complete the visit will receive a $20 Amazon gift card.
