Compression Pumps & Devices
What are Compression Pumps?
Compression Pumps, also known as Intermittent Pneumatic Sequential Compression devices (IPC)or (SCD) treat various conditions such as Lymphedema, Venous Insufficiency and DVT’s. The pump mimics the bodies’ own lymphatic system to help stagnant fluid get transported and eliminated from the body, while promoting better circulation. This process results in a reduction of pain and swelling of the limbs as well as the healing of ulcers and wounds. Our company does not just provide a medical device, we provide a healthier way to live.
How do Compression Devices Work?
Compression Pumps are pneumatic devices that are connected to leg or arm garments with tubing.
The pump works by compressing upward the excess stagnant/pooled fluid in the extremities caused by various lymph, vein, circulatory or surgical issues.
The garments have at least 4-8 chambers; the compression starts at the bottom of the extremity and the pump compresses the fluid upward, sequentially, through each chamber of the garment until it gets to an area of the body where it gets absorbed and eliminated.
The sleeve deflates and begins the process again.
They are quite effective in reducing symptoms, are comfortable and can be used with ease in the home.
We have many years of experience dealing with compression devices and getting them authorized for the patients.
Our compression devices are sequential and gradient. They are highly rated and effective and provide continuous, at home therapy that significantly, benefits the patient’s condition. They do work!
Our garments can accommodate very large patients. They zip on, not velcro, so they last longer. Pressure setting can be adjusted by the patient as the need for more or less pressure arises.
