Bios Living Compression Pump
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 it 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.
Medical Grade Results
For most users, alleviating swollen feet and legs is enough, but the BIOS Compression Pump is a Class II medical device approved by Health Canada for the following medical conditions:
• Alleviates Swollen, Sore Legs, Ankles and Feet (PTS – Post Thrombotic Syndrome)
• Prevents Blood Clots/Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
• Treats Cramping, Burning and Tired Calves (Intermittent Claudication and Peripheral Arterial Disease)
• Improves Symptoms of Varicose Veins
• Treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency
• Long Journeys Syndrome (Economy Class Syndrome)
• Reduces Recovery Time After Exercise
• Alleviates swelling from (stage 1) Lymphedema

The BIOS Living Compression Pump is a battery powered medical device weighing only 8oz. The robust little motor produces a small, but gentle wave motion that will pump continuously for 8 hours on a single charge. An AC/DC adaptor is included, along with two high quality “AA” NiMH, rechargable batteries.
Clinically Proven Relief
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.
