Health Conditions Treated by Vasocare
VasoCARE provides medical devices for home treating circulation issues such as chronic edema, lymphedema, venous leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and claudication and more.
Lymphedema develops when the lymphatics have not developed or have been destroyed while undergoing surgery or radiation treatments. Impaired lymphatics or untreated venous insufficiency lead to Lymphodema.
Lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) are diseases of the lymphatic and venous systems resulting in progressive swelling, inflammation, and skin changes. Unfortunately, there is no cure for lymphedema, but symptoms can be managed with daily pneumatic gradient compression. Our pneumatic compression devices provide calibrated gradient pressure and are easy to use at home.
Two, one-hour therapy sessions per day.
Venous Stasis Ulcers
Venous stasis ulcers develop as the venous valvular system becomes incompetent due to long hours of standing or the result of DVT that damages the valvular system.
Impaired valves leads to venous hypertension, swelling, discoloration, which further decreases epidermal perfusion leading to ulceration. Daily pneumatic compression therapy reduces edema and venous hypertension, improves perfusion, accelerates ulcer healing, and helps prevent recurrence.
2 – 3, one-hour therapy sessions per day.
Claudication Limb Pain
Claudication limb pain is due to inadequate supply of blood flow to the calf muscles. The pain is usually felt while walking and subsides with rest.
In severe cases, the pain persists even during rest. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs due to an insufficient supply of arterial blood flow.
The VeinOPlus Vascular device treats and helps manage claudication limb pain by increasing arterial inflow to the legs 5 times. Studies show VeinOPlus increases walking distance over 100% and reduces limb pain up to 80%.
Patients love the ease of use. Portability allows for self-treatment while at home or at work.
Two, one-hour daily treatments.
Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Approximately 13% of individuals living with diabetes develop diabetic foot ulcers due to poor circulation. Insufficient arterial inflow to the lower extremities leads to foot ulcers and is the key factor in delayed healing.
High blood sugar levels are often present in diabetics and can cause increased blood viscosity resulting in the thickening of the capillary membrane, negatively impacts blood circulation to feet, and eventually the development of diabetic foot ulcers.
Treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers
During one-hour of VeinOPlus therapy, the calf muscle is stimulated 3,600 times. Every second, a contraction improves venous outflow 7 times while arterial inflow is improved 5 times to the lower extremities (change from lower extremities to feet). After one-hour of VeinOPlus therapy, foot circulation is improved approximately 20% and healing is accelerated.
Two, one-hour therapy sessions per day. Once healed, recommended maintenance protocol is one, one-hour daily sessions to prevent recurrence. Daily one-hour helps prevent foot ulcers.
Post VeinOPlus therapy, measurements were taken…20 minutes later, TcPO₂ level were taken to measure residual index readings. 5 minutes later, Toe Pressure levels were taken to measure residual index readings
Rapid venous emptying by the VeinOPlus increases arterio-venous gradient pressures, increases TcPO₂ and Toe Pressure levels, and accelerates healing.
One-hour of calf neuromuscular electrostimulation
Post Thrombotic Syndrome
Post thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a common complication of venous thromboembolism leading to chronic swelling, discoloration, pain, and eventually venous leg ulcers.
The VeinOPlus Vascular device reduces edema and pain, increases arterial inflow, and improves patient’s quality of life. The device is easy to use and allows for self-treatment while at home or at work.
SYMPTOMS of PTS:Leg Heaviness Cramping Swelling Pain Discoloration Dry hardening of skin
Two, one-hour treatment sessions per day.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
With the traumatic nature of surgery and prolonged periods of reduced mobility after surgery, most patients remain at increased risk for DVT and PE for up to 3 months after surgical intervention.
The incidence of VTE in the absence of prophylaxis ranges from 40% to 60% (venographic rates) 7 to 14 days after major orthopedic surgery.
A 12-year study found that fatal PE was the single leading cause of death, occurring in 1% of patients.
Every minute, the VascuEase™Portable DVT System helps prevent venous stasis by delivering 50 mmHg of pneumatic pressure for 15 seconds over the calf muscle area. The portability and ease of use promotes high compliance and positive results.
