The Perfect Intermittent Compression
Arguments for the Gradient Principle

The Perfect Intermittent Compression

Intermittent compression (lymphamat/comprimed/vasoflow) has been firmly integrated into up-to-date therapy of venous and lymphatic diseases. Its efficiency and significance is demonstrated and documented in numerous studies.

With the gradient system, Bösl Medizintechnik sets the standards in pneumatic decongestion therapy. In each therapy sleeve’s air chamber, gradient pressure generates the physiologically required pressure decline, ascending in a distal direction.

The difference in gradients between a sleeve’s first and last air chamber was developed following the manufacturing of compression stockings, thrombosis stockings, and manual lymphatic drainage.

The proven 12-, 6- and 3-chamber devices lymphamat/comprimed/vasoflow have been optimized with the gradient principle. Thus at the user‘s disposal are now the well-known, reliable, but substantially improved therapy devices.

*gradient = pressure decline

Arguments for the Gradient Principle

It has become known from fluid mechanics that the hydrodynamic resistance increases linearly to the pipe length. Due to the distance and principle of inertia, the gradient system works high in the distal region and proximal supportively lower.

Without external influence, fluid flows from a high pressure level into the one correspondingly lower, the gradient determining the direction of flow. The distributed pressures of the gradient system have a decisive impact on direction and velocity.

A continuous flow through the entire extremity is ensured, for the fluid mobilized in the high pressure range may pass unhamperedly through the low pressure levels.

For the patient, the average pressure load is considerably lower than with the conventional systems. Subjectively, the patient experiences the proximal declining pressure as substantially more comfortable compared to conventional therapy devices. Feelings of tension in the region of the thigh will no longer exist.

The gradient harmonizes with the natural hydrostatic reality of the extremity and realizes the pressure decline physiologically required in decongestion therapy.
