Features and Benefits

Variable Pressure Therapy (VPT®)

According to a recent study, intermittent negative pressure therapy may increase blood flow to the wound site more effectively than continuous pressure. This is may be due to the fact that during higher pressure settings there is increased perfusion of blood flow to the wound with a hypoperfused "halo" at the wound edge. As pressure levels decrease this "halo" is reduced and increased blood flow disperses into the surrounding tissue minimizing possible ischemic effects.

 

 

And the potential benefits of VPT® do not end there. With Variable Pressure Therapy:

Pressure levels and time settings for high and low pressures are completely customizable
Recommended pressures of between 40 and 80mmHg are calibrated to increase in comfortable 5mmHg increments providing a gentle massage effect
Discomfort due to sudden high to low pressure spikes is virtually eliminated
Negative pressure is always maintained at the wound site because pressures never drop to zero
Pressure levels can be set to higher or lower than capillary pressure of 32mmHg based on clinical needs
