The device for vacuum compression therapy is used for treating disorders of blood circulation in limbs, particularly in peripheral complications of diabetes, wherein its effectiveness in the treatment of sensorimotor diabetic neuropathy and the treatment of diabetic ulcers (diabetic foot) is extremely significant. It has been clinically proven that procedures of vacuum-compression therapy prevent the emergence and development of sensorimotor diabetic neuropathy, as well as the creation of diabetic ulcers. Significant reduction of problems can be achieved in cases of developed neuropathic or trophic defects.

Treatment of serious diseases

  • peripheral complications of diabetes
  • promotion of healing venous leg ulcers
  • peripheral arterial disease
  • functional disorders of the arteries of limbs
  • entrapment syndromes (carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel)
  • degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal apparatus
  • algodystrophy, the treatment of complex regional pain syndrome in adults

Main advantages

  • clinically documented, extremely effective method of physical therapy
  • computer-controlled course of the procedure
  • opportunity for objectification and optimization effect procedures
  • mechanical support for patient positioning simplifies operation and increases efficiency
  • optionally, synergistic carbon dioxide therapy can be added

Therapy principle

Vacuum phase

Reduction of extravasal pressure causes increased filtration of gases and substances to tissues. Arteriogenesis is gradually stimulated and blood is supplied via newly created arterial collaterals into obliterated sections of peripherals.

Secondary drop of intravascular pressure stimulates formation and the development of collateral circulation and neovascularization. 

Relief phase

Pressurization phase pushes blood venous system, improves arteriovenous pressure gradient in the capillary area. This also increases liquid absorption from the tissues.

The volume of venous blood decreases, thrombotic activity reduces and lymphatic drainage accelerates..  

Computer-controlled and monitored treatment 

Vacuum compression therapy requires precise control of the course of the reaction and vacual stage. At the same time, different courses of therapy are optimum for different diagnoses. For this reason, the apparatus is controlled by an efficient computer that has been optimised for fast and effective operation. The computer allows you to choose the course of the procedure according to the diagnosis (approximately 500 curative procedures in 12 basic groups) and to work with the most commonly used procedures and even makes it possible for the doctor to remotely choose a suitable procedure for a specific patient on specific apparatus.

Patient monitoring - diagnostic modules for optimum and considerate treatment

Apart from a sophisticated system of procedure control, the "Patient monitoring" module is also available to accompany the Extremiter apparatus. This allows you to entirely objectively monitor the immediate reaction of the patient to a procedure via precise measurement of changes in the dimension of the limb (V, delta_V), saturation of the arterial blood with oxygen (SpO2) and the perfusion index (PI). Monitoring therefore makes it possible for the physiotherapist and the doctor to keep vacuum compression therapy constantly under control and, if required, to modify its parameters.

Blue curve
 - blood circulation in limbs grows significantly

Green curve - volume of the limb falls slightly

Red curve - constant or growing curve indicates that the progress of the procedure is physiologically correct
