Pushing the Boundaries of Recovery with Blood Flow Restriction Training

Sports Medicine

At Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinic, we are committed to continuous improvement in our clinical practice to provide the best care possible for our patients. One of our most recent advancements has been the acquisition of a MAD-up PRO - the only device of its kind in Australia. This revolutionary device is set to significantly enhance our blood flow restriction (BFR) practices.

Blood flow restriction training is a technique that has gained significant attention in the field of rehabilitation. It involves the application of pressure to a specific area of the body, restricting blood flow to the muscles during exercise. BFR has been scientifically proven to restore muscle mass, decrease pain, and increase function. One of the most appealing aspects of BFR training is that it allows individuals to train with lower weights while still achieving the same physiological benefits as training with heavier loads.

With the introduction of the MAD-up PRO into our clinic, we've managed to take our BFR practices to an entirely new level. The benefits have been astounding, as we've been able to shave months off patients' rehabilitation times. Moreover, our patients are making better recoveries than ever before.

To illustrate the incredible power of this device, we'd like to share a success story. One of our postoperative patients utilised the MAD-up PRO over an eight-week period, visiting our clinic four times a week for ten-minute sessions. The results were nothing short of remarkable.

Over this period, the patient doubled their tissue strength and increased their tissue mass by a staggering 18%. These improvements significantly enhanced their recovery process and overall quality of life. The ability of the MAD-up PRO to expedite rehabilitation and maximise recovery outcomes is genuinely transformative.


At Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinic, we are proud to be at the forefront of innovative practices in physiotherapy and sports medicine. The addition of the MAD-up PRO to our clinic is just one example of our commitment to staying ahead in our field and offering our patients the very best in modern rehabilitation techniques. 

Whether you're recovering from an injury or surgery, or looking to enhance your athletic performance, we're here to help. With our dedicated team of professionals, including the recent addition of Specialist Sports Physicians Dr. Liam West and Dr. Hussain Khan, and our state-of-the-art equipment, we can create a personalised plan to meet your health and fitness goals.
