Trying to handle a bodily injury can be a troublesome task. When swelling, fractures or other injuries occur, trying to heal yourself and get back on the right track again can be challenging.

Throughout the years, scientists and researchers have put together different technologies to reduce the time it takes to heal injuries or surgeries. Now, the latest equipment to do so is the vasopneumatic device.

Vasopneumatic therapy takes care of injuries quickly and painlessly, so you can get back to taking care of what matters in your life.

Vasopneumatic compression therapy is a proven effective treatment for venous edema and lymphatic disorders: it helps reduce swelling caused by fluid seepage into the tissues and reduces venous reflux and venous hypertension. Read on to learn more about some of the benefits of vasopneumatic devices.

Keeps Muscles Warm and Increases Flexibility

Compression with a vasopneumatic device helps keep body muscles warm, which is a bonus for contact sports athletes. When your muscles are warm, they become more flexible and have a wider range of motion. This reduces your chances of injury and makes your movements more comfortable and efficient.

Increases Oxygen in Your Muscles

Medical studies have found that compression increases the amount of oxygen found in muscles. Oxygen is fuel for your muscles and helps heal any soreness after exertion. By increasing the oxygen available to your muscles and tissues, vasopneumatic devices speed healing and reduce discomfort.

Relieves Pain

Vasopneumatic devices also reduce pain. When an inflatable garment or inflatable wrap compresses the muscles, it pushes the blood back toward the heart. This makes your muscles feel a lot lighter and also relieves discomfort.

Increases Awareness of Your Body

Interestingly, studies found that patients who use compression therapies feel more in tune with their bodies. Since vasopneumatic devices put pressure on the skin, they activate the receptors that communicate with your brain to let you know exactly where your legs, arms, hands, and feet are and what they are doing.

Speeds Recovery

By compressing the veins, vasopneumatic device therapy promotes faster blood flow through your system. Lactic acids and other wastes in the tissues are carried away in the veins and back toward the heart.

Vasopneumatic therapy helps drain metabolic wastes more efficiently, which promotes quick recovery. This is true for recovering after an intense workout and after several types of surgeries.

Reduces the Appearance of Veins

Scientists found that patients can dramatically reduce the appearance of visible veins by regularly using vasopneumatic devices. Since these veins are caused when pressure builds, causing them to twist and engorge, a vasopneumatic device reduces the built-up pressure and helps blood flow more smoothly.

Helps Prevent and Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite

Cellulite is the bane of many women and men, affecting their body image and confidence. Scientists are still trying to identify its causes, but there are some signs that blood circulation plays an important role. Recent studies have shown that a vasopneumatic device can effectively reduce and prevent cellulite from appearing.

  • Known or suspected deep vein thrombosis
  • Non-pitting chronic lymphedema
  • Thrombophlebitis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Uncontrolled/severe cardiac failure
