Circulatory Enhancement Device For the Lower Limbs
FlowAid 100 is a unique device for treating all forms of lower extremity circulatory disorders and associated complications. It can be used in hospitals and at home. The basic mechanism of the FA100 is the activation of the calf muscle pump by sequential compression of the deep veins of the lower leg with a series of electrically stimulated, controlled contractions. These contractions, which run from distal (bottom) to proximal (top) on the leg, cause peristaltic contraction waves. This creates pressure on the deep veins of the lower extremities and in consequence leads to their emptying.
The increase in venous discharge from the lower extremities makes the FA100 an effective device in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency, lymphoedema and related complications of these diseases. Maintaining a constant flow also helps to prevent the development of deep vein thrombosis.
Furthermore, improving venous return by activating the calf muscle pump causes an increase in arterial flow*. The extremity is supplied with new oxygen-rich blood. This helps in the treatment of arterial insufficiencies, chronic wounds and associated complications.
Due to the increased blood circulation of the extremity with oxygen-rich blood, the FA100 has already achieved good results in the treatment of micro-ischemic neuropathy.
After application, patients perceive their leg as lighter and warmer and the symptoms decrease. Compared to other compression devices, the FA100 is easy to use, does not exert unpleasant external pressure and thus ensures more reliable patient compliance and consequently better results**. Patients retain full mobility during FA100 use without any restriction to their daily activities.
