The BIOS Compression Pump uses Venowave Technology. It is battery powered and worn on the back of the leg, approximately 2″ below the knee. When turned on, a unique wave motion continually propels blood upwards, increasing lower leg circulation by 64%. The result is a substantial reduction in pain and swelling, especially in the lower legs and feet.
The device is easy to strap onto the leg, without assistance, and it can be worn comfortably for hours. It is a medically effective alternative to wearing compression stockings.
The BIOS compression pump is a compact battery-operated, peristaltic pump that generates a waveform motion. When worn firmly on the calf, the device produces upward volumetric displacement, which translates to an increase in blood flow. The BIOS compression pump was developed and tested in Canada.
PROVEN TO WORK
The BIOS Compression Pump is a medical device that has been statistically proven to improve circulation and alleviate the symptoms associated with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) including swollen legs, varicose veins and post thrombotic syndrome (PTS).
How the BIOS Compression Pump works
The BIOS compression pump is applied to the back of the calf, the pump mimics the body’s venous system by preventing blood from remaining still and clotting. The BIOS compression pump is unique because it is lightweight (250g, less than ½ pound), discreet and allows patients to remain completely mobile. There are no wires, tubes or sleeves. Patients can comfortably wear the compression pump for hours at a time while still maintaining an active lifestyle.
Real World Outcomes
• 64% increase in popliteal peak venous flow (after 2 minutes of use)
• 88% increase in popliteal peak venous flow (after 50 minutes of use)
• 79% decrease in the occurrence of Venous Thromboembolism in high risk patients.
