Clinical Results

The following cases demonstrate the efficacy of FlowAid treatment.

Color Doppler Ultrasound (CDUS) imaging of the popliteal vein while being treated with the FlowAid FA100 SCCD

Baseline – No recognized Flow

Treated – Flow increase (peaks and widening of the vessels) by the induced compression caused by the FA100 contractions

Baseline

Treated

Treated – Widening of the vessel

Other Results

The following cases demonstrate the efficacy of FlowAid treatment.

Patient: 64 Y/OFemale

Diagnosis: Diabetes Type 2 and currently receiving Dialysis 3 times weekly. Painful ischemic left foot with dry gangrene over the distal tips of toes 1-4. Scheduled for amputation.

Results: Over the 5 weeks of treatment the ischemic condition of the foot has been improved and there is a healthy brown color to the foot.
There is less pain and edema. The distal gangrene that was scheduled for amputation has resolved.
Toes 2, 3, and 4 have been debrided of all eschar and at last visit these toes were healed completely.
