Suji Pro: Engineering

Written by Ali Cianciulli

Engineering Mastery in Suji Pro Development

At Suji, the evolution from a basic blood pressure cuff to the cutting-edge Suji Pro epitomizes our commitment to engineering excellence and innovation. The development of Suji Pro was driven by a desire to create a more portable, user-friendly, and efficient Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training system.

The engineering team, led by Product Design Engineer Erin Kennedy, faced several significant challenges. The most notable was designing a robust and intuitive pump-cuff connection. This mechanism had to be strong enough to withstand high pressures while remaining user-friendly. The solution was a patent-pending magnetic docking system, a groundbreaking feature that ensures a secure yet easily detachable connection.

Another major engineering feat was overcoming global supply chain issues, particularly for electronic components. This required strategic planning and adaptability, ensuring that the development process remained on track despite external challenges.
