The BIOS compression pump is a compact battery-operated, peristaltic pump that generates a waveform motion. When worn firmly on the calf, the device produces upward volumetric displacement, which translates to an increase in blood flow. The BIOS compression pump was developed and tested in Canada.
- The BIOS compression pump is applied to the back of the calf, the pump mimics the body’s venous system by preventing blood from remaining still and clotting.
- The BIOS compression pump is unique because it is lightweight (250g, less than ½ pound), discreet and allows patients to remain completely mobile.
- There are no wires, tubes or sleeves.
- Patients can comfortably wear the compression pump for hours at a time while still maintaining an active lifestyle.
The BIOS Compression Pump is a medical device that has been statistically proven to improve circulation and alleviate the symptoms associated with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) including swollen legs, varicose veins and post thrombotic syndrome (PTS).
