Doctor Life Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) Machines

With Intermittent Pneumatic Compression  the limb is surrounded by an inflatable cuff with several chambers, which are inflated sequentially so that there is a wave of compression travelling up the limb in short bursts. Venous emptying is greatly facilitated and an active circulation is encouraged.  It is also useful in the arm to reduce lymphoedema after mastectomy.

DL2002D

 This  model is excellent at treating persistant swelliing of the limbs and lymphoedema. The chambers inflate in the direction from foot to thigh and remain inflated until the end of the cycle. (Mode B in diagram on home page)
