Flow is the name of the game

Such an even, pain-free treatment of the lower extremities in cases of peripheral circulation disorders or lymph drainage problems cannot be achieved by a human hand. The physiotherapist leaves this job to the VACUSPORT® and can use his high qualifications for functional therapy and the development of neurological-orthopedic skills.

The effect on lymph flow and peripheral perfusion in the subcutaneous / epifascial region can be triggered in different ways. Pre-programmed settings are available for typical indications in the area of regeneration and rehabilitation. These automatic treatment programmes are based on the experience of several 100,000 applications in leading clinics worldwide. This guarantees best practice and makes the therapy successful, simple, safe and delegable.

A treatment takes between 30 and 40 minutes depending on the indications and is always perceived as pleasant by the patient. Depending on the indication 8 to 16 sessions within a period of three to six weeks are prescribed. In-patients can be treated daily with IVT.

Munich Consensus
British Athletics Muscle Injury Classification Purpose of the application Added Value Duration
Fatigue- induced muscle disorder, Type 1A 0a /0b Reduction of pain. Passive vascular training and intra-corpural lymph stimulation. Injury prophylaxis. Improvement of performance; faster resumption of next workout. Maintenance and access of good training status. 10-15 x 30min.
2 times per day
Delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), Type 1 B 1a Acceleration of regeneration by quick reduction of lactic acid and cK after training or competition. Improvement of performance by reduction of down-time. 5 x 30min daily
Spine-related neuromuscular Muscle disorder. Type 2 A 1b Lumbar spine traction. Deblocking. Reduction of edema and pain. Intramuscular blood flow promotion and neuronal endothelial stimulation. Quicker return to training and competition. 10-15 x 30 min
3 x per week (*6-18 x 15min)
Muscle strain; Muscle-related neuromuscular Muscle disorder. Type 2 B 2a / 2b Pain reduction. Lymphatic drainage and stimulation of blood circulation. Faster recovery 15-20 x 30min.
3-5 x per week (*6-18 x 15min)
Minor partial muscle tear, Type 3 A 2c Rapid pain and edema reduction. Lymphatic drainage and stimulation of blood circulation. Shortening of RTP (Return to Play) up to 40% 20-25 x 30min.
Daily, min. 3-5 x per week
Moderate partial muscle tear, rupture of muscle bundle, Type 3 B 3a Rapid reduction of acute pain and edema. Faster reduction of hematoma. Intramuscular wound healing promotion. Shortening of individual RTP (Return to play) between 30-50% 20-25 x 30min daily
min. 5 x per week
Subtotal or complete muscle tear. Tendinous avulsion. Type 4 3c / 4 Rapid reduction of acute pain and edema. Wound healing promotion and neuronal stimulation. Surgery avoidance. Shortening of individual RTP between 30 - 50% and maintaining capillarization. Shortening of recuperation time. 25-30 x 30min.
Daily, min. 5 x per week
Post-operative swelling / early post-operative rehabilitation after radical interventions or knee / hip TEP in hospital.   Lymphatic drainage, promotion of blood circulation and improved venous reflux. Reduction of edema. Rapid reduction of hematoma. Acceleration of wound healing. Tissue Management. Early mobilization. Shortening of early rehabilitation (bloodlessly discharged quickly). Creates more capacities in the ward and in the OR. 3-5 x 30min during acute phase
Neurological rehabilitation (clinical phase A - D)   Active and passive mobilization through flow promotion and neural stimulation. IVT helps to restore self-reliance and quality of life). 15-20x30 min 3x per week,
subsequently for maintenance,
1 x 2 per week
Fibromyalgia   Pain reduction, passive vascular training and neural stimulation. IVT makes the symptoms manageable and improves the quality of life of the patient. 10-15 x 30 min 2-3 x per week,
subsequently for maintenance
1 x 10-14 days
Rehabilitation after knee or hip replacement surgery (Total Endoprosthesis / TEP)   Pain relief, detonation and hyperaemia through passive vascular training. Deedematization. Promotion of mobility. Strengthening physical resources and functions. Increase in endurance by promoting capillarization (neural stimulation). IVT offers value-added rehabilitation and faster integration of the rehabilitation patient in everyday life without additional workload. 3-5 x 30min
during acute phase
Gonarthrosis (primary and secondary, unilateral or bilateral)   Deedematization through lymphatic drainage. Maintaining or increasing capillarization through neuronal stimulation. Traction. Pain relief and reduction of discomfort through passive vascular training and hyperaemia. Optimization and acceleration of the build-up and stabilization phase while at the same time relieving the staff. 10-15 x 30min,
2-3 x per week
Polyneuropathy (peripheral)   Intensive flow promotion (vascular training, circulation promotion and lymph drainage) and neuronal stimulation for pain relief, prevention of amyotrophia (muscle wasting) and cramps, reduction of RLS and paraesthesia. Preservation of the skin condition. With passive physical therapy, holistically promoting the "flow", reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. More USP for the medical facility. 10-15 x 30min 2-3 x per week,
subsequently for maintenance
1 x 10-14 days
