Abstract

The authors evaluate a novel compression device for the treatment of lower extremity vascular disorders. Subjects were treated with a Sequential Contraction Compression Device and Popliteal Vein blood flow was measured. As a comparator, patients blood flow was also measured during passive plantarflexion/ dorsiflexion of the foot, and also during Electric Muscle Stimulation of the calf. The Popliteal blood flow was significantly elevated with use of the SCCD as compared to EMS, and was not significantly less than with passive range of motion which is the gold standard.
