Your Guide to ECP Therapy
Everything you need to know
How Does ECP Work?
Once comfortable on the therapy bed, inflatable cuffs (similar to blood pressure cuffs) are wrapped around the calves, thighs and hips. ECG sensors are then placed on the chest for heartbeat detection. During treatment, the cuffs inflate and deflate in time with each heartbeat. Inflation happens sequentially from the calves up to the hip, boosting blood flow in and around the heart. The rhythmic pulsing of the cuffs is firm, yet comfortable – like a leg massage.
What Impact Does ECP Have?
Increased Levels of Angiogenesis
Studies have shown increased levels of angiogenesis (where new blood vessels are formed to bypass congested arteries). These findings suggest potential benefits in terms of both recovery and longer-term protective benefits to overall health.
Reduced Inflammation and Stress
Research has shown a series of ECP Therapy treatments can reduce the levels of several markers of inflammation in the blood.
