Venowave VW5-10 Mobile Compression Device for PAD and PVD
Venowave VW5-10 Mobile Compression Device for Peripheral Artery Disease and Peripheral Vascular Disease Management - Venowave VW5-10 for the Management of Peripheral Artery Disease and Peripheral Vascular Disease
Venowave VW5-10 is sold in kits containing 2 units of the Venowave as well as a battery charger and batteries. Battery life is 20-24 hours per charge to reduce battery charging to once daily with a spare set of batteries provided, enabling one set of the batteries to be in use and another on charge for effective and convenient peristaltic wave mobile compression therapy. For best therapeutic effects, the Venowave VW5-10 should be applied to calves on both legs at the same time.
Venowave VW5-10 Mobile Compression Device is a medical device statistically proven to improve circulation in the legs. Medical studies and clinical experience demonstrate reduction of pain and discomfort cased by intermittent claudication alongside significant increase in walking distance in people suffering PAD and PVD. By increasing circulation in leg arteries and supporting venous return, the Venowave VW5-10 increases the quantity of oxygen rich blood reaching tissues, thus preventing disabling ischemia and painful muscle cramps, whilst increasing the distance the sufferers are able to walk.
Easy to apply and simple to use, the Venowave VW5-10 Mobile Compression Device delivers a safe and effective solution to problems associated with poor blood flow, helping you to regain your mobility and independence.
Venowave is FDA approved, Health Canada certified and holds CE mark Medical Device accreditation (CE 0086 – MDD 93/42/EEC).
*Venowave can be purchased VAT free by people suffering relevant chronic problems.
Peripheral Artery Disease also known as Peripheral Vascular Disease is characterised by narrowing of peripheral arteries and occurs mostly in the legs and the pelvic area. PAD/PVD is a common condition, during which fatty deposits build up in the lower leg arteries and restrict or block blood flow reaching the leg muscles. Many people suffering peripheral artery disease (PAD/PVD) have aching leg muscles caused by walking and exercise. Upon rest, the cramps, pain and discomfort frequently disappear. Some PAD/PVD sufferers do not experience any symptoms.
Peripheral artery disease is a cardiovascular condition caused by build up of arteroma (i.e. fatty deposits made of waste materials and cholesterol) in the peripheral arteries. The fatty deposits narrow the vessels and restrict the blood supply to the muscles – artherosclerosis occurs. In severe cases of PAD/OVD, a total loss of circulation to the legs and feet could lead to gangrene and amputation.
The PAD/PVD is diagnosed by taking blood pressure in the leg at the ankle. The risk of PAD/PVD increases with age, but is also seriously exacerbated by smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, family history, diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. If untreated, the PAD / PVD can lead to further complications, including arterial leg ulcers and sores, difficulties with walking, loss of mobility, coronary heart disease and stroke.
Traditional treatments for PAD/PVD include healthy lifestyle (i.e. exercise and walking, stopping smoking, healthy diet, weight loss, cholesterol management, diabetes management), surgical procedures (i.e. angioplasty, bypass, stents, etc.) and medication.
Venowave VW5-10 Mobile Compression Device is a medical device statistically proven to enhance circulation in the legs. Medical studies and clinical experience demonstrate reduction of pain and discomfort cased by intermittent claudication and significant increase in walking distance. By improving blood flow in leg arteries and supporting venous return, the Venowave VW5-10 ensures greater volume of oxygenated blood reaching muscles, thus preventing disabling ischemia and painful muscle cramps. When Venowave is applied to the back of the calf, it mimics the body’s natural venous blood flow and increases circulation in both the veins and arteries of the lower legs and combats PAD / PVD.
The Venowave VW5-10 offers the advantage of total portability that enables the users to move freely, whilst peristaltic wave compression is applied. There are no wires, tubes or sleeves and the power is provided by AA batteries, which provide circa 12 hours of continuous circulatory support. The device can be easily worn under normal clothing (i.e. long skirts or long loose trousers).
The Venowave VW5-10 Mobile Compression Device enables active lifestyle, whilst delivering impressive clinical efficacy across circulatory conditions.
Venowave delivers the following benefits:
- Therapeutic compression
- Treats leg swelling arising from vascular insufficiency
- Relieves pain and discomfort of intermittent claudication
- Enhances circulation
