Hemodynamics

Hemodynamics concerns the forces the heart “has to develop to circulate blood through the cardiovascular system.” Rapid Reboot provides external dynamic compression to improve circulation by strategically increasing and decreasing venous pressure. Since it is the blood that carries oxygen to your muscles, facilitates protein-synthesis, and helps rebuild cells, improving circulation before and after a workout not only speeds up your recovery time, but also improves the quality of your recovery.

“[T]he results of this and previous studies show that IPC (intermittent pneumatic compression) can significantly reduce the lower-limb venous pressure and consequently the arteriovenous pressure gradient and thus improve arterial calf inflow.”

“[I]ntermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) of the foot (IPC(foot)), calf (IPC(calf)) or both (IPC(foot+calf)) augments calf inflow, and improves the walking ability and peripheral haemodynamics of claudicants (IPC(foot), IPC(foot+calf)), largely due to venous outflow enhancement.”

“The results achieved by the IPC (foot+calf) treatment appear to be superior to those published on the best medical treatment and are on par with those presented for well-conducted, supervised, exercise programs.”

“Studies conducted with direct pressure measurements enabled them to show that a better and more lasting reduction of the venous foot pressure, and subsequently an optimal arteriovenous pressure gradient, could be obtained with their leg pump when the applied pressure was slightly higher than the initial venous pressure, combined with a compression period of 2 seconds and a compression interval of 15 seconds.”

“IPCfoot+calf emerged as an effective, high-compliance, complication-free method for improving the walking ability and pressure indices in stable claudication, with a durable outcome. These changes were associated with a significant improvement in all aspects of QOL evaluated with the SF-36.”
