The BIOS Living Compression Pump is battery powered. It is worn on the back of the leg, approximately 2” below the knee. When turned on, a unique wave motion continually propels blood upwards, increasing lower leg circulation by 88%. The result is a substantial reduction in pain and swelling, especially in the lower legs and feet.
The device is easy to strap onto the leg, without assistance, and can be worn comfortably for hours. It is a medically effective alternative to wearing compression stockings, but it can still be worn over compression stockings without any difficulties.

How Long to Wear the Compression Pump
The BIOS Living Compression Pump should be worn for as long as is needed to bring the swelling under control. Swelling and chronic pain from poor circulation (medically referred to as Chronic Venous Insufficiency) is quite common, but the severity of the condition has 6 classifications and varies widely between individuals.
The BIOS Living Compression Pump will alleviate this condition but how long you wear it for depends on individual severity; how much swelling there is and the condition on the individual's venous system (veins and valves). Some people have relief after a few hours of use, but those with severe CVI will wear it for several hours to reduce swelling. There are no harmful effects from wearing the pump.
