This venous pump was designed to provide better patient compliance and to significantly improve venous velocities. The VenAssist Venous Pump applies external pneumatic compression (EPC) for the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Comfortable cuffs are applied to the lower limbs of patients at risk for DVT. The cuffs contain two air bladders, one positioned at the foot/ankle region and the other at the calf. The bladders in the cuffs are inflated periodically to stimulate significant increases in the venous blood flow velocities including those at the popliteal and femoral levels.
VenAssist pressure is applied rapidly in a manner similar to foot-only compression devices, yet they are much faster than devices that compress the calf or thigh regions.
