Vasper

Introducing the Vasper System

Watch this video to learn how it works and who can use it.

Take a Closer Look

Compression allows lactic acid to accumulate in your muscles, which then drives a strong signal to the brain requesting human growth hormone and testosterone to accelerate body repair and recovery.

Cooling increases the efficiency of your exercise by delivering more oxygen into the muscles, which reduces perceived exertion.

Low impact NuStep machine accommodates almost any physical limitation while reducing physical breakdown and fatigue.

Customizable software enables interval training to be customized to any physical ability level

  • Build muscle mass fast and increase strength
  • Protect your joints and diminish joint pain

Elite runners

Bill is an elite level runner who knows that performance gains are measured in seconds or fractions of seconds. He uses Vasper as part of his race preparation knowing he is at minimal risk of injuring himself before an event.

Athletes who want to stay in shape

Robert is a level 4.0 tennis player and uses Vasper to stay in shape and on top of his game when the courts are wet or its too cold or hot to play.

People with osteoporosis

Ellen has osteoporosis and can safely exercise with Vasper to build her bone and get stronger.

People who lack energy to exercise

David feels unsteady on his feet and lacks the energy to start exercising. In a 21-minute Vasper session twice a week, he can gain the strength to perform his daily activities.

Time-stressed business owners

Brian works 10 hour days on his business and can use a 21-minute Vasper workout to get more out of his training in less time than other exercise.

Want to stay fit as you get older?

As we get older, the temptation to give up on exercise gets stronger. But in fact, it is the worst thing we can do. The body just seizes up. This low impact exercise helps protect your joints and muscle from the trauma of traditional exercise while keeping joints free and muscles supple. Vasper sessions can be customized to accommodate all ages and abilities – especially people carrying injuries.

Are you injured or recovering from surgery?

A Vasper session stimulates the release of growth hormones that help the body repair damaged tissue while also reducing the aches and pains that conventional exercise causes.

Not into gyms and weights?

Gyms aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. They can sometimes be quite ordinary, and even if you like weights, it’s all too easy to do more harm than good if you get your technique wrong or without the supervision of a good trainer. Our Vasper sessions are low impact, low intensity and can get you feeling better and healing faster.

Amplify your Vasper Workout with LiveO2

We installed a new LiveO2 Adaptive Contrast system that allows users to alternate between an oxygen rich and oxygen poor environment while using Vasper. Switching between these two modes provides high altitude training, optimizes health, fights fatigue, and improves respiratory, immune and brain function.

Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) was originally developed in the late 1960s by Dr. Manfred von Ardenne, a physicist who used it with cancer patients. The goal was to support the function of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems by providing a rich supply of oxygen.

It is also known as Multistep Oxygen Therapy or Exercise with Oxygen Training. Over the years, it has been adapted as a method of training intended to increase oxygen absorption by providing the user with a constant flow of oxygen during a workout – benefiting athletes as well as folks with chronic heart and lung medical conditions. When done correctly, EWOT can deliver results with as little as 15 minutes of treatment a few times per week.

EWOT can help patients with respiratory illnesses, such as COPD, who are often unable to exercise (or even walk to the mailbox or take out the trash) without getting severely short of breath. EWOT allows patients all the benefits of exercise without increased stress on the heart or lungs!

While hyperbaric oxygen chambers have been used for years for similar purposes, EWOT is proving itself less expensive and more accessible.

EWOT can offer a number of different health benefits including:

  • Decreased inflammation
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Improved immunity
  • Improved energy levels
  • Improved exercise tolerance, stamina and performance
  • Improved metabolism
  • Improved alkalinity
  • Improvement in symptoms of COPD, cancer, heart disease and brain injury
  • Improved metabolism
  • Anti-aging effects

 

The use of oxygen therapy during exercise has already been shown to improve exercise tolerance and stamina in COPD patients.

After EWOT, you’ll find yourself invigorated, renewed and clear-headed. For acute therapy, multiple EWOT sessions are employed for a short period of time. Alternatively, EWOT can be used over a long period of time with intermittent treatments to manage chronic conditions like stress or illness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

Normal exercise attire is fine! We recommend a shirt with sleeves and shorts as well as avoiding exercise tights that are too compressive or slick. The workout is performed barefoot so there is no need to have athletic footwear. And remember, you won’t be sweating, so if you want to get in and out quickly, come in your comfortable work clothes, slacks and shirts should be fine.

Why am I barefoot?

You are barefoot during your Vasper session because we are cooling your feet! The bottom of your feet are one of the most effective areas of the body for heat exchange, so by cooling the soles of your feet, the heat generated by your body is released, which helps you stay comfortably cool and minimize sweating.
