Title:
FOOT COMPRESSION SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2010/006030
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
Methods and systems for dynamic compression of venous tissue enable improved blood movement in the extremities. In accordance with an exemplary embodiment, a pressure pad provides a compressive force to the venous plexus region of the foot. The pressure pad is successively withdrawn and re-pressed against the foot. Improved blood circulation may reduce the occurrence of undesirable complications such as deep vein thrombosis, ulcers, and the like.
