Application of this massage-effect as the main management for patients with diabetes and non-reconstructable arterial disease has recently demonstrated remarkable results. All flow changes in Group 1 over the period of IPC foot+calf treatment, and a year posttreatment, were nonsignificant (P > *). Baseline volume flow in Group 2 [median 68 (iq range 52–) ml/min] was not different from that of Group 1 at the same time-point (P = ).

A reduction in blood flow and swelling also can be achieved with compression by facilitating translocation of edema away from the site of injury and toward proximal noncompressed tissues where it can be resolved more efficiently by the lymphatic system–17 Importantly, the addition of cold to compression increases the rate, magnitude and.

ArtAssist® The Arterial Assist Device® was developed by vascular surgeons to increase arterial blood flow. It applies a unique compression sequence of mmHg to the foot, ankle and calf with comfortable cuffs to circulate blood flow.
