    how much do you want to bet they just got bored of exercising in the hyperbaric chamber and now just want to play around with katsu training.

    Where everyone else would just use a elastic band, leave it to the airforce to insist on a $5,000 computer system.

      It would appear they need the “elastic band” to do more than be “elastic” however and is either being driven by need, or, more likely advancement in wound treatment in transport to a medical facility.
