The role of Pressotherapy in Physiotherapy

For several years, pressotherapy has been used to heal circulatory diseases as the lymph edema, trough a two steps process:

  • The medical treatment
  • On the one hand medical processing

Two types of pressotherapy can be used: The bath of mercury (mostly used in specialized centers) and the source of compressed air (the most used nowadays)

What is Pressodermie® used for?


Applications fields

Heavy legs

Obstetrical surgery
Digestive surgery
Colioscopic surgery

Mostly for vascular troubles that can be...

  • Lymphatic or venous.
  • Primary and secondary lymphedema
  • Post-thrombosis edema
  • Hypodermitis
  • Varicose ulcer or post-thrombosis
  • Algodystrophy
  • Post-traumatic edema
  • Lipodystrophy

What a thrombosis is...

The thrombosis of the deep veins of the lower limbs is a serious postoperative complication in many surgical acts.

It often appears during the operative act itself as induced by many factors as:

  • Immobility
  • Hypercoagulability in case of high hemorrhagic surgical operation
  • The eventual mobilization of intra-abdominal organs involving a possible compression of the deep venous axes.

How to prevent thromboses

Our TP 07 provides true peroperative assistance for the venous circulation in the lower limbs, with an auto-modulating pneumatic compression (EUREDUC Patent).

This compression cycle is made via 7 compartments boots that encloses the limbs to be treated.

The pressurization cycle is in sequences as such:

A part from the lonely first compression chamber, the inflation of a chamber sets off an increase of pressure in the previous inflated chamber, and so on...

This pressure gradient enables a progressive increase of the tissue pressure (stronger on distal than on proximal) and offers a potent venous drainage.
