PneumaPress® is an intermittent pneumatic compression system by Griffiths and Nielsen Ltd.
The system is designed to increase the velocity of blood and decrease stasis within deep veins of patients with decreased mobility (whilst in hospital), therefore reducing the risk of DVT.
Air from the controller is delivered to the garments’ chambers. The air sequentially pressurizes the chambers, which applies pressure to the legs and the veins within them, forcing blood up towards the heart.
The PneumaPress® features a 1-touch button system, it is quiet, small, lightweight, and easy to use. Its battery has a back-up of up to 8 hours. The system features audio and visual alarms, and digital readouts.
