Air Press

The AIRPRESS is the most accredited technique for maintenance of healthy limbs. This can be carried out daily and there are no particular counter-indications, with the exception of acute phlebitis, advanced pregnancy and the presence of varicose veins and so drip-thrombosis. Recent experimentation has shown without any doubt that the use of an airpress gives such considerable benefits that it is no longer considered an auxiliary system, but rather an indispensable means of removing alterations derived from venous-lymphatic problems. The instrument’s internal programs (of which there are four in addition to the personalized program, used by clients in particular situations) are an absolutely essential element.

Progam Contents

The integrated microprocessor, is read by Flash and transfers to its memory, 4 programs (functioning modes), selected and studied to make the instrument efficient and easy to use by any operator, even one with no experience.

PROGRAMS

PERISTALTIC PROGRAM
The first program is called peristaltic. It is a treatment, which has given research level results concerning the speed of venous blood flow following compression, at parity of massage tolerance. The modality which favours these results can be found in the compression-decompression phases, from the feet to the abdomen. The patient, once the leg unit is placed as comfortably as possible, then undergoes the massage, which can create pressure on the inferior limbs and the abdomen in order to remove slowed or stagnant venous-lymphatic circulation. This in turn aids the return of venous liquid in the large veins of the abdomen and of the chest, which subsequently aids urinal filtering of the kidneys. At the end of this process, all liquids are then eliminated through urination.
ELEPHANTIASIS PROGRAM
The second program is called elephantiasis. This treatment, starting from the more distal sectors, compresses all the inferior limbs up to the abdomen. This is very much indicated for venous insufficiency and is the fastest program (as a sequence), but also the most difficult to bear. Therefore, for this reason it needs a recovery phase, so as not to interfere continuously with arterial pressure, which acts in the opposite direction.
ARTERIAL PROGRAM
The third program is called arterial. It is descendant and is very useful for atrial problems, therefore indicated for arteriopathologies. Generally, it aids the pumping action of atrial vessels, helping the distal perfusion of the lower limbs.
DRAINAGE PROGRAM
The fourth drainage program, has 36 steps, each one of which is programmable according to specific needs. This treatment, aids drainage of liquids in the groin area and in the collection points in the lower areas of the back thanks to its repeated massage on the limb.
