SEQUENTIAL CONTRACTION COMPRESSION THERAPY
FlowAid’s FA100 is a unique, hospital and home use device that uses a sequential pattern of neuromuscular electrical stimulation to increase blood flow. The primary mechanism of the FA100 is to activate the calf muscle pump using electrically stimulated controlled muscle contractions to compress the deep veins of the lower leg. These contractions run from distal to proximal along the leg in a peristaltic wave. The periodic compression of the deep veins results in increased venous outflow and increased arterial inflow, making the FA100 is extremely useful in the treatment of diseases that benefit from increased blood flow.
The FA100 is easy to use and exerts no external pressure on the leg, resulting in high patient compliance that is essential for good clinical outcomes. Patients have complete mobility without any interference in their daily activities while using the FA100 SCCD.

Working differently… the sequential way.
When a single part of the vein is compressed, some of the blood will temporarily be moved caudal (towards the head). This single contraction will also cause an increase in back-flow pressure through the damaged valves.
The FA100’s compressions are performed on multiple sites, while the distal compressions are held. Therefore all the blood that is moved caudal (towards the head) will remain in that direction even when the valves are damaged.
The FA100 SCCD introduces a breakthrough in sequential muscle contraction and venous compression without any external pressure to the limb.

HOW IT WORKS
By contracting the calf muscles, the natural mechanisms that regulate and control blood flow are activated causing increased venous outflow from the leg through the following four actions:
The primary mechanism of the Flowaid FA100 SCCD is to compress the veins in the lower leg by using specifically controlled peristaltic contractions, causing an increase in Venous Outflow from the limb. By increasing Venous Outflow, the FA100 SCCD also increases Arterial Inflow. Together, the action of the FA100 SCCD results in hyperinfusion of the limb.
