Compression boots, also known as pneumatic compression devices or compression therapy boots, are medical devices designed to improve circulation and reduce swelling in the legs. They consist of inflatable chambers that are placed around the legs, and these chambers are inflated sequentially to create a massaging or squeezing effect. Here are some of the benefits and uses of compression boots:

* Enhanced Circulation: Compression boots help improve blood circulation in the legs by applying pressure that encourages the flow of blood back towards the heart. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with conditions such as venous insufficiency or deep vein thrombosis.

* Reduced Edema and Swelling: The intermittent compression provided by these boots helps to reduce edema (fluid retention) and swelling in the legs. This can be particularly helpful for people who experience swelling due to surgery, injury, or conditions like lymphedema.

* Prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): Compression boots are often used as a preventive measure for DVT, especially in individuals who are at an increased risk, such as those undergoing surgery or with limited mobility. By promoting blood flow, they can help prevent the formation of blood clots.

* Muscle Recovery: Athletes and individuals engaged in strenuous physical activities may use compression boots to aid in muscle recovery. The increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage can help reduce muscle soreness and expedite the removal of metabolic byproducts.

* Post-Surgical Recovery: After certain surgeries, particularly those involving the lower extremities, compression boots may be prescribed to minimize swelling and improve circulation. This can contribute to a faster recovery process.

*Treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI): People with chronic venous insufficiency, a condition where the veins have difficulty returning blood to the heart, may benefit from compression therapy. Compression boots can help alleviate symptoms such as pain, swelling, and skin changes associated with CVI.

* Management of Varicose Veins: Compression therapy is a common component of the management plan for varicose veins. By promoting blood circulation, compression boots can help reduce the discomfort and swelling associated with varicose veins.

It's important to note that the use of compression boots should be prescribed and monitored by healthcare professionals. They come in different pressure levels, and the appropriate level of compression should be determined based on an individual's specific condition and needs. Always consult with a healthcare professional before using compression boots, especially if you have pre-existing medical conditions.

Here at Neurohealth we use ENDURANCE ACTIVE RECOVERY BOOTS. They come with 6 different programmes

Programme 1: (MASSAGE) exerts pressure from the foot towards the heart, alternating chambers

Programme 2: (LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE) stimulates flow through pressure from the foot towards the heart, retains pressure until the entire leg chamber has been inflated.

Programme 3: (DOUBLE MASSAGE) exerts pressure from the foot towards the heart, two chambers at a time.

Programme 4: (FULL SQUEEZE) provides complete simultaneous pressure by all chambers that are slowly inflated (similar to occlusion).
