New Case Study – Recently Published

Sequential Contraction Compression Device Aids in the Healing of an Ischemic Foot Ulceration in a Chronic Dialysis Patient: A Case Report – J Rosenblum
Published in Journal of Clinical and Medical Case Studies 2017:2 39-41

from the case study:

“The FlowAid FA-100 SCCD produces the same effect as the ICD without the complications mentioned above. The SCCD is small, portable and easy to use. Patient compliance is extremely high. The resulting contractions of the leg help to evacuate the limb of pooled venous blood and allows for more and better arterial return thus revascularizing the limb and causing an increase
in tissue oxygenation.

CONCLUSION
While not intended as a primary wound care device, the clinical results generated by the SCCD imply that it would be a useful adjunct therapy in wound care, especially in increasing the vasculature to the foot and leg. A clinical trial proving this is called for, but clinical practice would indicate that the SCCD has a place in the wound care field as well as the vascular”

US Food and Drug Administration FDA clearance

FlowAid has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration FDA clearance for its FA100 SCCD (Sequential Continuous Contraction Device) for the following indications: increase of local blood circulation, immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis, prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy and edema reduction. The FA100 SCCD is the first device of its kind cleared by the FDA for the indication of edema reduction.

Additional FDA applications will be submitted to expand our claims for other disease-specific indications, including the treatment of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy and Lymphedema.

 

 

 

Positive Results from a Study of Patients with Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

A New Look at a Therapeutic Treatment for Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN)

segments from the Press Release:
FlowAid Medical Technologies Corp. announced positive results from a study of the usage of its FA100 Sequential Contraction Compression Device among a group of patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Following 30 days of supervised home use, the patients reported significantly less pain, less reliance on analgesics and fewer nights of disturbed sleep.

FlowAid CEO Jacob Brezel: “The new research could alter the way Diabetic Neuropathy is understood and treated. Use of the FA100 SCCD on patients suffering from hypoesthetic DPN restores sensation. We are planning larger studies that will bear out our findings”
