PAD is increasing in incidence with the rise in obesity, Diabetes and smoking. The author sets out to evaluate a new technology, Sequential Contraction Compression Therapy, in patients with PAD. On an open label prospective analysis of 18 patients with moderate PAD and claudication SCCD was found to be effective in lowering their complaints of pain and in increasing the distance walked before claudication. The results of this study show that this technology warrants a further evaluation as a possible adjunct therapy in the treatment of PAD.
