Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a clot formed in the deep veins of your leg, which can result in leg swelling, discomfort, and tenderness. A fragment of the blood clot may break off and go to your lungs, posing a severe health risk. Intermittent pneumatic compression, such as the Recovapro Air, prevents DVT by using a simple machine that creates pressure to move your blood and improve your circulation.
The Recovapro Air Compression System is a sequential compression device that includes cuffs that automatically fill with air and painlessly squeeze your legs. The pump inflates different areas of the sleeves, stroking them from bottom to top to assist in blood flow through your legs. The increased blood flow through your legs' veins helps prevent blood clots like DVT.
After putting on the right sleeve, which should feel snug but shouldn’t hurt, the cuff is attached to the compression machine. This machine will cycle between inflating and deflating the cuff, providing enough pressure to move the blood back to your heart.
The Recovapro Air delivers a cyclic sequence of pulses, holds, and releases to various parts of your legs. Pulsing enhances circulation before compression is used to aid blood flow back up your legs. Through your veins, blood is returned to your heart and lungs. They contain small valves that help your blood travel around. The Recovapro Air is a vascular health treatment that prevents blood from backing up and causing cramps, heaviness, and other symptoms.
Static pressure that lasts for a long time can block circulation. The Recovapro Air recovery boots release its hold as soon as the pressure is no longer necessary, preventing backflow.
The Recovapro Air is relaxing; many people compare it to a thorough massage. For 20-30 minutes, the boots are worn. Then, a pulsing sensation begins to develop near your feet. As it travels up your legs, a modest compression replaces the pulse.
