The Venowave is a class two medical device designed to aid circulation. Most people who use the Venowave suffer from the following conditions: Deep Vein Thrombosis aka Economy Class syndrome, Venous Insufficiency (Varicose Veins), Post Thrombotic Syndrome, Lymphedema, Peripheral Arterial Disease and Leg Ulcers caused by diabetes.
Recently, the device was used by Canadian Triathlete/Olympian Simon Whitfield and his team as part of their training at the London Olympics. The device works well for cool downs and warm ups.
When worn firmly on the calf, the patented device (Health Canada, US FDA and CE approved) generates a wave-form motion that mimics the circulatory system, bringing blood from the calf up to the heart thus improving circulation.
Best of all, it only weights 250 grams and is powered by one AA battery. It is non-invasive as it does not penetrate the skin.
There are no restrictions when wearing the device, and it can be used while walking, running and even sleeping.
