How is Renew™ ECP Therapy performed?
After a full client assessment, Renew™ ECP Therapy is administered by a trained Renew™ ECP Therapy Operator. Once the client has made themselves comfortable on the Renew Therapy treatment bed, inflatable cuffs (similar to blood pressure cuffs) are wrapped around the calves, thighs and hips. ECG sensors are then placed on the chest to detect the heartbeat.
What Happens During Treatment?
During treatment, the cuffs inflate and deflate in time with each heartbeat. Inflation happens sequentially from the calves up to the hips. The inflation of the cuffs squeezes blood from the lower legs up toward the heart, thus improving blood flow in and around the heart. The rhythmic pulsing of the cuffs is firm, yet comfortable – like a leg massage.
How the Body Responds to Renew™ ECP Therapy
A STRONGER HEART
IMPROVED VASCULAR FUNCTION
Renew™ ECP Therapy has been shown to dramatically increase shear stress in major arteries of both the upper and lower limbs (75% & 402% respectively*)1. With continued treatments, this can lead to improved vascular health, in the form of enhanced endothelial function and reduced arterial stiffness.
