Fluid movement pumping device with artificial valve for increased blood and lymph circulation
The proposed work will investigate a general approach to improving peripheral blood circulation in the lower legby augmenting venous blood return.The general approach is based onthe literature and findings of a recent investigation that assessed the effects of vacuum-assisted suspensionsystem (VASS) prostheses on blood circulation in dysvascular transtibialamputees.Some...

Method and Apparatus for Applying Pressure to the Lower Limb to Increase Blood and Lymph Circulation
The disclosed technology is intended to address fluid accumulation in the legs that is symptomatic of lower extremity disorders, such as peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and lymphedema. The device is designed to be worn on the foot and leg and to provide directional pressure to move the fluid in the lower extremity back towards the heart. The directional...
