Portable Infrared Pressotherapy air Pressure Therapy machine
What is pressotherapy?
It is provided by special equipment that comprises inflatable boots (or arm sleeves) that rhythmically inflate and deflate in order to pump lymph in the lymphatic vessels and blood in the veins of the legs (or arms) towards the heart.
It is also known as alternate compression therapy or pneumatic compression therapy.
It is a mechanised lymphatic drainage technique that fights water retention by applying intermittent compression on one or more parts of the body - typically the legs. Stomach and arm
What is Manual lymphatic drainage and compression garments?
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a very light lymphatic drainage massage technique that was developed in the 1930s. It is especially gentle and thereby very well suited to very weak, fragile or sensitive individuals and is the only technique suited to patients that had their lymph glands removed after cancer. However, this technique is not nearly as effective in healthy women (i.e. 95% of women) as pressotherapy
With the low pressure differential of anything between 7 and 15mmHg ,this pressure differential is too mild to offer any significant lymphatic drainage benefits with a Compression garment. Actually, it can make cellulite worse, as they deprive the tissues of mechanical stimulation necessary for collagen cell (fibroblasts) productivity.
How does pressotherapy work?
The air is automatically pumped into pneumatic chambers of the boot. The Machine can apply a pressure that reaches 100mmHg or even 120mmHg.With this strong pressure ,the machine can automatically adapt the patient's blood pressure and help all parts of body do the deep lymphatic drainage massage ,then enhance blood circulation . If you use a good anti-cellulite cream,it will add to the results of the treatment.
What is far infrared heat therapy ?
Far Infrared Heat Therapy generates heat from far infrared rays.
When the temperature reaches 70 degrees, the energy will infiltrate into 4cm to 7cm deep of the muscle and skin, it can fully dissolve the surplus grease to achieve the purpose of keeping your body slim. At the same time it also can beautify your skin by helping heal scars, wounds, and cuts, reducing the appearance of crow's feet, fine lines, and wrinkles.
How does far infrared heat therapy work in human being?
Far infrared rays are rays that promote bioprocess such as increased metabolism and blood circulation, and can raise core body temperature.
Far infrared rays heat our body by a process called conversion. Through conversion, far infrared heat can penetrate organic substances such as the human body without heating the air in between, and increase the levels of oxygen and white blood cells in your blood.
Far Infrared Ray-induced heat is harmless, comfortable, targeted and deep penetrating. It is an effective way to strengthen immunity and improve blood flow, which eases muscles spasms, rehabilitates movement impairment, alters the sensation of pain and promotes tissue repair
Advantages of Far Infrared Heat Therapy
By using far infrared heat as opposed to traditional heating methods Sauna, you enable the heat to penetrate deeper into your body without the skin discomfort of heating pads, hot towels, and some pain relief gels/creams.
Only if the sauna uses far-infrared technology, the sauna might be more tolerated by patients who don't tolerate the high temperatures of the standard humid hot air saunas. This is because far-infrared rays do not heat the air inside the sauna, but they still heat the body
