A sequential compression device or Leg Compression Machine device is used as a leg massager. Massage is a very simple and easy method to move the blood flow from one part of the body to another. It has been used since ancient times as a therapeutic massage for eliminating bad habits, obtaining health benefits, reducing pain and swelling in muscles, becoming pregnant faster, etc. The massage helps stop toxins from entering our veins which leads to losing weight or gaining extra fat on certain parts of your body especially those that are connected with muscle areas such as thighs legs calves etc. An example could be tight and stiff calves muscle that leads to tight feet and shins. One could get a massage for it but these days we don’t have enough money or time to go through massaging little by little via normal methods, so the best way would be having an electric compression leg stretcher which can solve such problems at once. That is why these kinds of machines started becoming more common one after another helping people in increasing their flexibility of muscles including legs, improving leg musculoskeletal system performance at the same time.
Compression therapy works on several factors. Compression therapy gets rid of the swelling, increases circulation, and reduces pain after a certain amount of time. Compression therapy is used for musculoskeletal injuries such as flat feet, varicose veins in legs, and tendon damage due to sports or recreational activities. It also helps restore muscle function following surgery along with improving blood flow & lymphatic drainage that leads to healing faster.
The compression device provides pneumatic compression therapy, which can help to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT). People who have had a thrombosis usually experience pain in the lower limbs or back. The treatment has been seen to reduce symptoms of DVT, and may even cut down on the benefit of blood thinners after surgery as well as helping those taking aspirin.
People with diabetes also use compression therapy as they require circulation, which helps improve leg function such as walking and sitting comfortably along with decreasing pressure on the legs; one can lose weight and effectively treat varicose veins, and protect against pressure ulcers. In cases of leg cramps, compression therapy has been found to be as effective as anti-spasmodic mediation. In instances where a person hopes that their condition is psychological rather than organic, general anesthetic researchers have discovered compression therapy can provide relief from the anxiety associated with chronic thrombosis and varicose veins by temporarily reducing postural responses initiated in these patients. There are new bands on stocking available which prevent blood flow to the legs in the event of a blood clot.
This therapy was found to reduce pain in people whose calves are too tight because it encourages lymph flow, disperses blood clots, and helps restore muscle function after leg surgery along with improving circulation to prevent neural compression during long-term use for flat feet or varicose veins. Studies have verified that such boots improve metabolic oxygen consumption by up to 25%, as compared with wearing standard sports shoes.
Blood flow restriction can prevent pain in people who experience chronic cramps due to flat feet. Compression therapy has also been found beneficial for preventing acute leg swelling which occurs when someone experiences swelling resulting from surgery, particularly knee or hip replacement.
