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 BIOS Compression Pump was designed to address serious medical conditions that arise from poor circulation. It is a Class II medical device approved by Health Canada for the following medical conditions:
• Alleviates Swollen, Sore Legs, Ankles and Feet
• Prevents Blood Clots
• Treats Cramping, Burning and Tired Calves
• Reduces pain and achingfrom Varicose Veins
• Reduces risk of blood clots on long-haul flights and after surgery
• Reduces swelling and “heavy legs” in the lower legs and feet due to poor circulation
Warranty: The BIOS Living Compression Pump is backed by a Full One Year Manufacturer's Warranty against product defects

The BIOS Living Compression Pump has been clinically proven to increase circulation and relieve or alleviate the following conditions:
Chronic Swelling and pain- Swelling in the lower legs and feet is frequently related to a medical condition called “Venous Insufficiency” (VI). The condition varies in severity, but affects 40-50% of the adult population. The cause of poor circulation is the inability of the body’s natural pump(a combination of calf muscles and valves in the veins) to circulate blood out of the lower legs and feet. A quick way to determine whether one has VI is that the swelling subsides when you put your feet up.
The severity of the condition ranges from extreme – when sores are forming on the feet and lower legs, to swelling that increases throughout the day when people are standing for long periods.
The BIOS Living Compression Pump will reduce pain and swelling in both these conditions , but severe cases require more time for the device to pump and improve circulation.
Pain and aching Varicose Veins - the constant aching from varicose veins occurs when veins lose their elasticity and become dilated. This occurs when the pressure of blood against gravity causes the valve cusps to leak blood. When this happens blood is unable to escape and the pressure and pain worsens. In these situations the natural musclovenous pump is not working effectively. The BIOS Living Compression Pump replaces the body’s natural pump and increases circulation in the lower legs. By moving blood out of the lower leg, the pain and aching from varicose veins is alleviated.
Deep Vein Thrombasis (DVT) – a DVT is a blood clot that forms in the deep veins of leg due to insufficient blood circulation. The risk of DVT is very high following major surgery, prolonged sitting (economy class syndrome), and long periods when legs are not moving and the musclovenous pump cannot circulate blood. If a DVT dislodges into the blood stream it can result in Pulmonary Embolism (when it travels to the lung, blocking the oxygen supply, causing heart failure).
The BIOS Living Compression Pump was designed specifically to prevent DVT’s from occurring. The unique wave motion effectively circulates blood out of the lower legs, preventing the potential for a clot. The BIOS Living Compression Pump can be easily worn on long haul flights and after surgery when patients cannot move easily. It is frequently prescribed for post-surgery use for patients that have hips or knee’s replaced, or patients that are unable to use blood thinners to address DVT formation.

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 releif 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
