VASPER CONTRAINDICATIONS

Contraindications and medical conditions are very important aspects of client health that help the trainer's assessment of ability.

Contraindications are listed on the Vasper Waiver. The waiver is required for users to sign before using Vasper. Be sure the user confirms that they do not have one of the conditions listed. Ask about any other medical conditions, limitations, or concerns.

  • Currently taking blood thinners or any kind (anticoagulants).
  • History of easily getting bruised (contusions).

Contraindications and medical conditions are very important aspects of users health that help the trainer's assessment of ability. Speak with the user and make sure they have a diagnosed condition by a doctor, MD. Often, users will come in with partial fits or pseudo-conditions which do not qualify for this list, such as “my father died of blood clots” or “I get bruises easily” or “I have diabetes” or “my hands and feet are always cold”. These do not qualify as contraindications, however may indicate a change in protocol selection. Many of these conditions we are able to work with, but require a higher level of professional medical oversight and a conversation between our staff and their doctor or PT to clear them for moderate-intensity exercise. This is especially true for those on blood thinners, which is the most common contraindication you will come across.
