Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a chronic, obstructive disease that usually affects the arteries of the lower extremity. As the disease progresses, blood flow to the legs can be restricted and patients can experience pain, nonhealing wounds, and tissue loss. There is a large body of research that demonstrates that intermittent pneumatic compression applied to the foot and calf can improve blood flow into the leg and help minimize the symptoms caused by PAD.

These devices are commonly referred to as a lymphedema pumps. The lymphedema pump works because it mimics the natural actions of the body's lymphatic system by providing a gentle "massage" to help reduce the fluid in the swollen extremities by promoting lymphatic flow.

The FDA and CE-approved ArterioFlow® 7500 arterial compression pump is used to treat patients with insufficient blood flow in the lower extremities. The device works with Devon Medical's easy- to-use sleeve garments to apply compression to the foot and calf sequentially to empty the veins in the legs and feet, permitting an increase in blood flow. In this video, one of our happy (&kind) patients, together with our customer support team, will show you how to operate the pump and the garments while he enjoys his book with the comfort of treatment in his home. They will guide you through mode changing, pressure, treatment time & cycle time setting, as well as applying and removing the garments. We work with podiatrists, vascular surgeons, and other clinicians to address the needs of their lymphedema patients. If you have questions about device operation, or if you are a patient interested in using a lymphedema pump, please contact us. www.devonmedicalinc.com [email protected] https://twitter.com/DevonMedical http://www.facebook.com/DevonMedicalProducts http://www.linkedin.com/company/devon-medical-products

Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid causing swelling, usually in one or both arms or legs. The condition develops when the lymphatic system is impaired due to disease, infection or trauma to the lymph nodes, including surgical removal or radiation treatment for cancer. This video is a review of compression bandaging used to treat lymphedema in the leg. Please follow the instructions provided by your certified lymphedema therapist—you should not attempt bandaging without proper instruction by a clinician.

PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION MASSAGE is a revolutionary process that promotes the body’s natural functions.⠀ ⠀ It is composed of inflatable garments/cuffs consisting of multiple pressure chambers that wraps around the LEGS, ABDOMEN, ARMS, and an electrical pneumatic pump that fills the garment with compressed air. The garments/cuffs are intermittently inflated and deflated with cycle times and pressures.⠀ ⠀ A true ally to slimming treatments, this technique is an essential service offered in the framework of body care treatments in European salons and spas. It is an efficient detoxifying treatment, which through effective lymphatic drainage, helps to promote the body's natural toxin clearing functions. The revitalization and oxygenation of the tissue helps to slim and redefine the legs, stomach and arms while enhancing skin tone.⠀ ⠀ COMPRESSION is also widely used in the sport's world. Backed up by many scientific studies, Pneumatic Compression massage is proven to help boost athletes performance and speed up recovery from intense workouts and/or injuries. ⠀

http://flowaid.com/ FlowAid FA100 - Reaching new extremes... FlowAid FA100 is a unique Sequential Contraction Compression Device (SCCD) that treats all forms of circulatory disorders of the lower extremities and their sequelae. The Mechanism: The primary mechanism of the FlowAid device is to compress the veins in the lower leg through electrically stimulated controlled peristaltic contractions, causing an increase in Venous Outflow from the limb. This is useful in the treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency, Lymphedema, and complications of these diseases. By increasing Venous Outflow, FA100 also increases Arterial Inflow. This is useful for the treatment of PAD, Arterial Insufficiency and complications that may develop from these conditions. The FA100 has been useful in treating Microischemic Neuropathy by hyperperfusing the limb. The Results: Patients feel a lighter, healthier leg after use, and prevention of severe complications is observed.
