Vacuum therapy enhances quality of life and supports the body’s own healing mechanism
The Intermittent Vacuum Therapy (IVT) provides an effective treatment and relief of various symptoms related to peripheral artery disease (PAD). Studies show a significant improvement in blood circulation, which enhances blood flow – especially to the lower extremities of the body (arms, hands, legs and feet). With intermittent vacuum therapy, the microcirculation seems to be stimulated and the return blood flow is likely to be strengthened. Intermittent vacuum therapy enhances the quality of life for patients suffering from PAD.
The techniques of vacuum therapy
The technique of intermittent vacuum therapy involves exposing the lower extremities of the body to low pressure in different sequences.
Exposure of the body to alternately low pressure and normal atmospheric pressure stimulates the veins, thereby improving blood circulation.
- Decreased blood flow to the peripheral extremities (arms, hands, legs and feet)
- Muscle Cramps
- Cold feet
- Tired legs
- Swollen legs and feet
- Decreased wound healing on legs and feet
- Discoloration of the skin on legs
- Legs with weak pulse
- Legs with limited blood flow
- Peripheral lymphedema (swelling)
- Peripheral circulatory disorder associated with diabetes
- Cronic wounds due to PAD in diabetic patients
- Reduced return blood flow in legs
“I feel a striking improvement after vacuum therapy…“
”For the last 4 years, I have suffered from calf muscle pains, heel spurs, cold feet and a shooting pain in my feet. After receiving vacuum therapy, I feel a striking improvement. My heel spur doesn’t hurt anymore, and my feet are no longer cold. The shooting pain has disappeared completely, and my calf muscles are not constantly tight.”Eva Olesen
