IPC

The use of lntermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) is an essential component of today‘s treatment of lymphatic and circulatory disorders.

 

An electronically controlled blower ventilates the chambers of the garments which encompass the limbs or other swollen body parts.

 

The pressure and the duration of therapy can be exactly adjusted to the patients needs and indications.

 

Due to the convincing treatment success, the Varilymph 12 Pro sets new standards in the field of Apparative Decongestive Therapy.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

At the beginning of the therapy the

12 empty  chambers of the garment will be successively filled with air

(shown with the blue marking).  

1.

The duration of inflation depends, besides the sel ected time, on the anatomy of the patient.  During the therapy the chambers are filled one after another.

2.

This process transports tissue fluid in proximal direction (blue arrow) to reduce the edema.

3.

The pressure, which should be set by the atten ding doctor, can be adjusted exactly to the patient needs and the present indication.

When all chambers are inflated the garment will  begin to deflate regarding the time which is set for the therapy. After a short break the cycle will start again.
