CircuFlow™ 5208

CircuFlow™ 5208 Lymphedema Compression Therapy

The CircuFlow™ 5208 is a powerful pneumatic compression therapy pump that may help patients relieve the symptoms of chronic venous and lymphatic disorders in the comfort of their own home. Patients can control the pressure, mode and cycle time allowing for the ultimate experience in customized compression therapy.  Turn the device on and air begins to quickly inflate the attached garments, compressing the affected limbs and working to move the blocked lymphatic fluid in the right direction.  Initial treatment with the CircuFlow™ 5208  is usually for one hour twice a day depending on individual advice from your doctor but it can be used for up to four hours a day in intervals of 30 minutes to two hours. The 5208 offers you the convenience that you need to customize your treatment and can begin to improve your symptoms immediately.

Benefits of using CircuFlow™ 5208 Compression System:

  • This device features the largest display screen out of all the CircuFlow™ models. With its crystal clear 4”x1” digital LCD screen, users can easily access setup information and real-time pressure readings at any time.
  • The CircuFlow™ 5208 has two optional sub-therapy modes: uncorking, which mimics manual lymphatic drainage, and focus which concentrates more on the specific areas of a limb that are affected, providing a higher level of therapy for patients than our competitors.
  • The CircuFlow™ 5208 also features smart pressure monitoring which protects the patient from pressure tunneling due to errors during the setup process.

    What size garments do I need?

    The most important measurement is the inseam length. Find the range that your measurement falls into and that is what size you should get. For instance, if the inseam measurement is 34 inches, you should pick a large. Then you should measure the circumference around your ankle, knee, and thigh to see if you fit the standard size, wide, or extra wide size. If your measurement is not in a range, for example 27 inches, pick the size larger than that measurement, so the correct choice would be a medium sleeve since it can accommodate up to 29 inches. Please reference the CircuFlow™ Garment Measurement Chart when deciding what sleeve is necessary.

    How long will it take my garment to inflate?

    Although each pump was designed to inflate every garment within three minutes, depending on what size garment is being used, filling times will vary.

    What if I have to end my session sooner than expected?

    All of the CircuFlow™ pumps are designed with a built in deflation cycle. To end your session, press STOP at any time and the pump will deflate the sleeve for easy removal. To further deflate the sleeve, press the STOP button again to initiate another deflation cycle. This method may be used until the garment can be taken off easily. After pressing the STOP button, the pump will not resume from its therapy from where it left off.

    What is the default setting for the CircuFlow™ 5150 and the 5200 device?

    The factory default setting for the CircuFlow™ 5150 is 40 mmHg of pressure in the first chamber, with a 60 minute treatment time and 7% gradient. The user has the option to change the pressure and treatment time settings.
    The default setting for the CircuFlow™ 5200 is 45 mmHg of pressure in the first chamber, 30 minute treatment time, 7% gradient, and 30 second cycle time. The user has the option to change the pressure, gradient, cycle time, treatment time settings, and the ability to skip a chamber if necessary.

    How do I adjust pressure and time settings on the CircuFlow™ 5150 sequential compression device?

    Although the default pressure and time is set from the factory, some adjusting may be needed based on prescriptions obtained from your physician. To adjust the CircuFlow™ 5150 for personal use, press and hold the MODE button for at least 10 seconds. This will show you the customizing options. Use the ARROWS to adjust for the desired time and pressure. To exit the customizing screen, press the MODE button twice to return to the default screen. Never change your settings without first discussing with your prescribing physician.

    Why can’t I adjust the time and pressure on the CircuFlow™ 5200 sequential compression device?

    The CircuFlow™ 5200 Lymphedema pump has a built in Lock Function that the physician and/or DME distributor can initiate so that the controls cannot be tampered with. To confirm the pump has been locked, press the knob down. If you are prompted for a password, then the machine is locked. If the machine is not locked and you still cannot change the mode, pressure, or time settings. Contact your pump distributor for more information.
