Sore and swollen legs, coupled with numbness and cramping are all related to poor circulation. The BIOS Compression Pump was developed by medical professionals to alleviate the symptoms associated with poor lower leg circulation.
- Reduces pain and swelling in lower legs and feet
- Improves varicose veins
- Prevents blood clots (DVT)
- Medically proven to enhance circulation
- Can be worn comfortably all day
How it Works:
The BIOS Living Compression Pump is worn on the calf. The wave motion mimics muscle contractions and prevents blood from pooling in the lower leg. Weighing only ½ a pound, it can be worn comfortably all day and night.
Clinically Proven to Work
In clinical studies conducted at the McMaster Medical Center, the BIOS Compression Pump increased circulation by a remarkable 88% with only 50 minutes of use. A second research study showed a 79% decrease in blood clots in neurosurgical patients after their operations. The gentle soothing wave action on the back of the calf, effectively stops blood from pooling and has been medically proven to increase PVF (Peak Venous Flow) by 88%.
Health Canada Approved
For most users, alleviating pain and swollen legs is enough, but the BIOS Living Pump is a Class II medical device with approved indications from Health Canada:
• Varicose veins
• Damage done to the veins after a blood clot (symptoms related to post thrombotic syndrome (PTS))
• Prevention of Blood clots (deep vein thrombosis /DVT)
• Swollen legs (Peripheral Edema)
• Veins with problems sending blood from the legs back to the heart (venous insufficiency)
• Cramping, sore or tired legs (Intermittent Claudication)
I do like the pump...I use 2 at a time, one on each leg. It is very helpful to relieve pain as well as assist with circulation. I would say that it would be helpful if they were a little lighter and if the batteries lasted a little longer. I saw a tv ad that showed people shopping while it is attached to the leg...I would say that that is not practical and should not be promoted. I would also say that replacement straps should be made available for sale. It would be great if you could make a tiny version for spider veins in the ankle and lower leg. Thank you.
The Velcro sometimes comes loose on the band, and it falls down to my ankles. My shoulders are very painful, so maybe I’m having trouble getting it tight enough. It’s working well, to keep the swelling down. I usually wear it over compression stockings. I’m mostly happy with it, except for the band which looks like it needs replacing already.
I purchased a spare Bios Compression Pump for my wife who has been using hers for many months. It is light and easy to use and has a unique wave action to aid lower leg circulation. Unfortunately the new machine stopped working after less than ten hours of use. However the customer service from Age Comfort and the manufacturer was excellent and a brand new unit was delivered to our home in less than three days after the initial contact was made with customer service. I highly recommend this Health Canada approved device.
