The compression pump is a compact battery-operated, peristaltic pump that generates a waveform motion. When worn firmly on the calf, the device produces upward volumetric displacement, which translates to an increase in blood flow. The BIOS compression pump was developed and tested in Canada.
The pump mimics the body’s venous system by preventing blood from remaining still and clotting
Lightweight (250g, less than ½ pound), discreet and allows patients to remain completely mobile
Patients can comfortably wear the compression pump for hours at a time while still maintaining an active lifestyle
No wires, tubes or sleeves
Compression pump is applied to the back of the calf
