Advantages and benefits

The device is fitted with a universal connector, which makes it easy to snugly  attach the entire assortment of sleeves for hands, feet, stomach and buttocks.  The different colors and shapes of the fittings prevent improper connection to the device valves and guarantee proper function of the device.  The software lets you use a touchscreen or flashdisk to operate the device using the basic regime, where the speed of the pressure waves and the resultant pressure in all sleeve chambers is constant, or the GRADIENT regime, where the pressure in the sleeve chambers drops from the periphery to the center.

A flashdisk can be programmed for a particular regime using any of the fifty eight standard massage and kneading programs to treat the extremities, hips or buttocks or in combination with a fixed pressure treatment ranging from 0-12 kPa.  Physicians with card readers can use the flashdisk  to examine patient history.

The device can be controlled manually with touch buttons or by inserting a flashdisk into the designated place on the machine. The treatment itself is an integrated process, upon completion of which the device switches to stand-by regime and the sleeve empties itself.

For 8.14 type devices, when the selected treatment period ends or the number of selected cycles is completed, the sleeve empties automatically via forced suction. The device is also designed to work in vacuum mode. When combined with special accessories, the device can be used for vacutherapy.

The course of therapy can be monitored on a light display, where 7-14 LED diodes indicate active chambers and also display the parameters of the therapy currently underway (pressure, time, gradient, type of program and type of sleeve).

PNEUVEN devices make it possible to individually adjust the number of chambers used. The INDIVIDUAL PROGRAM function is used in cases where for any reason (typically for open wounds or other defects) it is necessary to turn off a certain cell or cells.

A popular feature among users is the FAVORITE THERAPY function, which enables patients to quickly begin a particular frequently used therapy with pre-set parameters.  It is possible to store up to 6 favorite therapies or to modify the settings for stored therapies.

What are the advantages of the device?

  • constant pressure regime and gradient regime
  • simple and clear touch controls, illuminated display
  • simultaneous presso and vacu functions
  • programmable flashdisk
  • individual programs according to user needs
  • storage and quick start of favorite therapies
  • modification of therapy parameters (pressure) during therapy
  • automatic suction emptying of the sleeve attachments, non-programmable smart card
