PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION BOOTS
Intermittent pneumatic compression
This is a therapeutic technique used to improve venous circulation after strenuous activity. The device consists of an air pump connected to compartmentalised sleeves or boots. When activated it forces fluids like blood and lymph out of the pressurised area. It increases circulation, eliminate swelling and metabolic waste. With deflation, the veins will be replenished with blood.
Medically it is also used to treat oedema and to prevent DVT.
In athletes, intermittent pneumatic compression has been used to significantly reduced the occurrence and intensity of DOMS(delayed onset muscle soreness), improve flexibility and to improve recovery.
