The treatment parameters of the innovative IVT are almost freely variable intervals of negative and
normal pressure phases and the variable intensity of the negative pressure. So the arterial, venous or
lymphatic flow can be triggered in a differentiated way functionally and depending on the indication.
IVT causes a rhythmic dilation and compression of the vessels and capillaries. Physically this increases
the circulation, the venous reflux and the disposal of lymph and lymph-dependent waste products. Fully
automatically. At the same time the intermittent pressure and vacuum waves provide vascular training
which promotes the formation of new collaterals (capillarisation). So the supply and disposal in the
treated area is additionally optimised and maintained with a long-term effect.
IVT with the patented VACUMED ® device is used in vascular medicine (also vascular surgery) and in
wound management. The locations are facilities for physiotherapy, diabetes centres, leg clinics, wound
centres or rehab clinics with a focus on vascular medicine. Internal medicine practices are also
possible. It contributes towards an increase in the performance and efficiency of the medical facility and
improves the quality of life of the patients fast and permanently.
Several different indication-specific treatment programmes are available. They run automatically at the
press of a button. The pre-programmed settings are based on the experience of over 100,000
applications. This guarantees best practice and makes the therapy not only successful but also simple,
safe and delegable.
A treatment takes between 30 and 40 minutes depending on the indication. The application is almost
contact-free and is always perceived as pleasant by the patient. In pain therapy for peripheral arterial
diseases or in the treatment of chronic wounds eight to 16 sessions within a period of three to six
weeks are prescribed. In-patients can be treated daily with IVT.
