ArterioFlow® Arterial Compression
Arterial Disease, also known as Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), is a very common circulatory disease in which the arteries in a patient’s legs and arms narrow and reduce blood flow to the extremities. Most commonly, this disease affects the legs but it also can affect the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the other major organs in the body.
Benefits of Arterial Compression:
- Relief: Through compression, pressure can be relieved as venous blood is released from the affected limbs.
- Rejuvenation: The limb may have less pain due to the increased arterial blood flow caused by the use of the pump.
- Rest: Venous insufficiency from PAD can cause pain. Arterial compression therapy lets the patient rest while the device gets to work.
