Are you fed up with your compression stockings?


The Venowave is preferable to compression stockings

Compression stockings are common, but that doesn’t mean they work. They are uncomfortable and hard to put on. They constrict circulation and don’t pump blood towards your heart. The truth is compression stockings are often recommended, but many patients refuse to put up with the hassle. As a comfortable and easy-to-use device, the Venowave is a step up in improving circulation and getting your blood flowing.

Improves circulation


Do the circulation booster devices work?


The Venowave is preferable to circulation booster devices.

There are some devices on the market that claim to improve one’s circulation. These are typically TENS devices that look like a typical bathroom weigh scale. Such devices give your legs small electric shocks with the aim of stimulating your circulation. The theory is that these electric shocks will stimulate your natural blood pumping motion in your legs. The trouble with this approach is that many patients have faulty valves in the veins of the leg and the blood still tends to backflow. The Venowave, by contrast, actually pumps the blood up the leg towards the heart.

The efficacy of the Venowave has been proven by leading experts in their field as articulated in several published studies in respected medical journals.

Leg Cramping


Factors Causing Cramps

Unfortunately, cramping is caused by a variety of ailments, including

  • Poor circulation
  • Smoking or drinking – Alcohol makes the veins swell. Too much alcohol can cause permanent damage resulting in spider veins
  • Obesity – Your body weight has a direct impact on your circulation. When you are overweight, there is increased pressure on legs and feet
  • Pregnancy – Similar to the problem of maintaining a healthy body weight, the effects of pregnancy causes increased pressure on legs and feet
  • Inactivity – An active exercise regime keeps blood flowing
  • Extended periods of standing or sitting
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – A blood clot in the deep vein of the legs, causing Post-thrombotic syndrome
  • Varicose veins

The Efficacy of Venowave is Clinically Proven

The Venowave works because it pumps blood upwards towards the heart. Indeed, the Venowave increases blood flow in major veins in the leg by as much as 88%. (Source: Blood, Journal of the American Society of Hematology, 2002)

Venowave Can Help

The Venowave is scientifically proven to prevent DVT from occurring in at-risk patients. This unique medical device is lightweight (350g), discreet and allows patients to remain completely mobile. There are no wires, tubes or sleeves and it is comfortable to use.

When applied to the back of the calf, the Venowave prevents and treats leg cramps by improving circulation from the legs back up to the heart.

Swollen Legs


Risk Factors for Swollen Legs

  • Prolonged sitting
  • Prolonged standing
  • Surgery (Neurosurgery, orthopaedic, Gynaecological and gastrointestinal surgeries)
  • Hospitalization
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes
  • Injury to the leg (with or without surgery/casting)
  • Airplane flights (>4hrs)
  • Medications (estrogen)

Traditional Treatments for Swollen Legs

  • Graduated compression stockings
  • Anti-coagulants
  • Pneumatic compression device

How the Venowave Can Help

The Venowave has been scientifically proven to alleviate the symptoms of a wide variety of circulation-related conditions. It sits on the back of the calf and mimics the body’s vein system by forcing the blood from the affected leg. The pumping action reduces swelling, pain, and heaviness. The Venowave is a unique, lightweight (350 grams or 12 ounces) and discreet medical device that allows patients to remain completely mobile. There are no wires, tubes or sleeves and the device can be worn all day long.

The Venowave is Useful For:
  • Compression
  • Post-thrombotic syndrome prevention
  • Management of the symptoms of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS)
  • Treatment of leg swelling due to vascular insufficiency
  • Treatment of varicose veins
  • Treatment of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)

Leading Doctors Recommend the Venowave

“In individuals who have chronic leg swelling, the Venowave can be very helpful.”
Dr. Sonia Anand, Director of Vascular Medicine, McMaster University, Canada

“Venowave appears to be a very promising new therapy.”
Dr. Martin J. O’Donnell et al., who conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded “cross-over” trial of the Venowave, the protocol of which was approved by Health Canada (No. 64844). The trial was also conducted according to the ICH-Good Clinical Practice guidelines.

Applications


Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot typically found in the thigh or calf, is a common ailment that constricts blood flow to the lower body. Clots from DVT lead to pain, immobility, and in certain cases, death. But now there is hope! Venowave offers a solution that keeps your blood flowing, reduces symptoms and ensures mobility.…Readmore

Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency is characterized by poor circulation and the body’s inability to pump enough blood back to the heart. Too many people have their mobility and quality of life hampered by the associated discomfort of cramped, tired, heavy, aching, painful and itchy legs. Traditional treatments only moderately reduce symptoms and increase mobility. Until now.…Readmore

Post Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS)/ Post Phlebitic Syndrome (PPS)

Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) has long-term consequences for quality of life. 60% of patients suffering from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) will encounter PTS within two years. The consequences are serious. A blood clot – a “thrombosis” – can damage leg veins and valves, then affect quality of life with pain, heaviness, swelling, varicose veins or ulcers. PTS symptoms are made worse by standing for long periods. Elevating the legs helps, and the Venowave has been scientifically proven to increase circulation in the lower extremities by up 88 percent.…Readmore

Lymphedema

When people struggle with painful swelling of the limbs, their mobility and quality of life are negatively impacted. Unfortunately, swollen limbs due to the abnormal accumulation of lymphatic fluid – lymphedema – is all too common. Caused by a malfunction in the lymph transport, lymphedema causes fluid to accumulate and swell the extremities. Lymphedema should not be confused with swelling due to venous insufficiency — the causes, mechanisms and outcomes are completely different.…Readmore

Wound Healing Intervention

Wound patients have trouble standing, and they may suffer from pain, night-time discomfort, and uncomfortable odor issues. Sadly, wound patients have long been underserved, with few options for treatment. Until now. The Venowave VW5 helps heal wounds and get patients mobile. The device has been scientifically proven to improve circulation in the lower extremities. By increasing circulation and drawing more oxygen to wound sites, the Venowave VW5 promotes faster healing and fends off potential amputations.…Readmore

PAD/PDV

Have you suffered with painful cramps, numbness, coldness or sores on your legs and feet? Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD) can be debilitating and ruin your quality of life. The blockages can cause pain, changes in skin color, sores or ulcers as well as difficulty walking. Don’t feel defeated! Help is in store.…Readmore
