INTERMITTENT COMPRESSION THERAPY

For professional and elite athletes

Assisting the body's natural repair systems and promoting rapid recovery. the TECNOSIX PR is a safe and effective therapy that provides many benefits to patients suffering from a wide range of conditions.

 

WHAT IS THE TECNOSIX PR? 

Pneumatic devices are used in intermittent compression therapy,  is a non-invasive treatment option for patients, which administers intermittent pressure to certain body parts. Intermittent compression therapy is often supplied with cuffs or sleeves that are wrapped over the patient's arms, legs, or other affected areas and are inflatable. The objective is to enhance blood flow, lessen edema, and treat a variety of conditions that affect the vascular and lymphatic systems.

WHAT IS INTERMITTENT COMPRESSION THERAPY?

The medical practice of intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC), also known as intermittent compression therapy or pressotherapy, is used to improve circulation, reduce edema, and manage a number of conditions. Compression therapy equipment and devices have been especially created and are used to repeatedly apply regulated pressure to parts of the body, most commonly on the limbs. 

HOW DOES INTERMITTENT COMPRESSION THERAPY WORK?

Intermittent Compression Therapy is a relatively simple idea but the devices have highly efficient mechanics and have strict guidelines in terms of the amount of pressure that is administered through the equipment.

Compression Application: Inflatable sleeves or cuffs that are attached to a control unit are worn by the patient. These cuffs are placed on the limb or other area of the body that requires therapy.

 

Inflation and deflation: The cuffs are sequentially inflated by the control unit, beginning at the distal (furthest from the body) end and moving toward the proximal (closer to the body) end. The limb is gently squeezed by the wave-like motion produced by the sequence of inflations.

 

Continual Pressure: The tissues beneath the limb are compressed (in a controlled manner) as the cuffs inflate and apply pressure, blood and lymph fluids are encouraged to travel toward the heart by this pressure.

 

The Relaxation Phase: The cuffs inflate for a while, then deflate, enabling the limb to briefly relax. Throughout the course of the therapy session, this cycle of inflation and deflation is repeated at regular intervals.

Intermittent Compression: Therapy efficiently imitates the natural pumping action of muscles and increases the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid by boosting this cyclical flow of fluids, it offers the patient with a number of therapeutic advantages.

ADVANTAGES OF INTERMITTENT COMPRESSION THERAPY?

  • ENHANCED
    CIRCULATION
     
  • REDUCED SWELLING
     
  • PAIN RELIEF

 

  • LYMPHEDEMA MANAGEMENT
     
  • INJURY HEALING
     
  • PREVENTATIVE

This therapy's main objective is to increase blood flow. By doing this, it can decrease the chance of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) therefore avoiding blood clots, and relieve symptoms brought on by poor circulation. By promoting the expulsion of extra fluid from tissues, intermittent compression therapy significantly lowers swelling (edema). For those suffering from chronic venous insufficiency or lymphedema, in particular. Due to increased circulation and decreased swelling, many patients report feeling less discomfort. For people recovering from surgery or those with persistent pain disorders, it can be especially beneficial.

 

By improving blood flow to the injured area, intermittent compression therapy might speed the recovery and healing of chronic wounds like venous ulcers or diabetic foot ulcers. It is also an effective treatment for Lymphedema. Lymphedema is defined by the buildup of lymphatic fluid, which frequently results in significant swelling. The cornerstone of lymphedema management, intermittent compression therapy helps patients in maintaining limb size and minimizing pain and discomfort. 

 

Intermittent Compression Therapy can also be used as a preventive measure against DVT and pulmonary embolism, which are potentially fatal disorders, in surgical settings or for patients with limited mobility.

Due to its many advantages, intermittent compression therapy is an effective treatment for many conditions, and offers a number of benefits to patients.

HOW AND WHERE IS INTERMITTENT COMPRESSION THERAPY USED?

  • ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY
     
  • VASCULAR DISORDERS
     
  • SPORTS & REHAB
     
  • HOME CARE

 

  • LYMPHEDEMA
     
  • CHRONIC VENOUS DISORDERS
     
  • WOUND CARE

 

There are numerous medical situations where intermittent compression therapy is useful, including but not limited to:

Intermittent Compression Therapy (ICT) after orthopaedic surgeries, such as joint replacement procedures, can reduce the risk of DVT and reduce recovery time. This treatment improves circulation in people with disorders like peripheral artery disease (PAD) or chronic venous insufficiency. Many athletes employ Intermittent Compression Therapy to speed up the healing process of muscle injuries and for pain relief following workouts.

 

Intermittent Compression Therapy sessions on a regular basis can help with conditions including varicose veins and venous ulcers. It is also an essential part of lymphedema therapy  treatment plans, assisting patients in controlling this chronic illness. For individuals with persistent or non-healing ulcers, it aids in wound healing and Patients can use portable intermittent compression therapy devices at home to ensure ongoing treatment and control.
