The ArtAssist® device applies compression to the foot, ankle and calf using comfortable cuffs to increase arterial blood flow. This compression simulates the beneficial effects of brisk walking, without pain. With more than 60 clinical studies conducted on this device, the ArtAssist® is the only device of its kind to have been designed and optimized for inducing the necessary physiological effects to treat areterial disease as well as Intermittent Claudication and Critical Limb Ischemia. This technology also promotes Arteriogenesis, the permanent opening of collateral arteries.
The ArtAssist® is recommended for:
- Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
- Diabetic foot ulcers from poor blood flow
- Arterial ulcers
- Intermittent claudication (experiencing pain while walking and relief when resting)
- Rest pain (experiencing constant pain, even at rest
- Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI)
The ArtAssist® was develped by vascular surgons to increase arterial blood flow. It applies a massage-like compression to the foot, ankle and calf to circulate blood flow. There are no known side effects.
