How it Works
By contracting the calf muscles, the natural mechanisms that regulate and control blood flow are activated causing increased venous outflow from the leg through the following four actions:
1. Activation of the natural venous muscle pump.
2. Forming a pattern of muscle contractions in a peristaltic wave form along the longitudinal axis from distal to proximal.
3. Activation of the musculature induces a metabolic demand creating an increased arterial inflow.
Instructions for applying the electrodes for your FlowAid FA100 SCCD:
3 different stimulation frequencies available for patient comfort:
AA: Lowest frequency, 4Hz
VE: Medium frequency, 9 Hz
PA: Highest frequency, 14 Hz
The recommended treatment protocol and dosage is the same across all conditions. 2 hours twice daily to the affected limb is ideal.
The primary mechanism of the Flowaid FA100 SCCD is to compress the veins in the lower leg by using specifically controlled peristaltic contractions, causing an increase in Venous Outflow from the limb. By increasing Venous Outflow, the FA100 SCCD also increases Arterial Inflow. Together, the action of the FA100 SCCD results in hyperinfusion of the limb.
