The V12 PRO is the best selling compression therapy device in Europe. Its an easy-to-use 12-chamber-compression-system. The high pressure compressor ensures quick inflation and deflation. We also have a wide range of attachments and accessories available. The V12 PRO can be used for workout recovery to maximize performance and also treat injuries (e.g. swelling), pain and inflammation.
How it works
A therapeutic technique used in medical devices that include an air pump and inflatable garments. The system is designed to improve venous blood circulation in the limbs of athletes between workouts or competition. It eliminates swelling and increases blood flow to speed up recovery time and effectively remove all bad liquid from the legs to then allow the limb to regenerate properly. IPC is also known to be used in hospital medical situations, such as lymphedema treatment.
When the V12 PRO is activated the air pump rapidly fills all chambers. Inflating and deflating air provides an increased blood flow back into the limb in a sequential order throughout the garment applying muscle tissue pressure. Treatment begins starting at the feet then working its way up over the adductor muscle and finishing cycle therapy directly above the most important part of the Lymphatic system. The Lymphatic system is known to be at the top of physical therapist list in regards to keeping their players healthy and taking care of their players recovery process on and off-season.
VENOUS BLOOD CIRCULATION
Deoxiginated blood is pumped back to the heart and to the lungs, where the blood is oxiginated again. A special pump system, the so called muscular pump, makes sure that the venous blood is moved from the limbs against gravity in direction to the heart. Walking or any other movement of the limbs causes an alternation of contraction and relaxation of the vessels. This interaction presses the blood forwards while functional valves in the veins prevent a return flow. Disorders of the venous flow (Chronic venous insufficiency) lead to edema and skin reaction as local inflammation, discoloration, thickening, and an increased risk of ulcers. The slowing down of the venous blood flow favors the development of blood clots in the veins (thrombosis).
THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
The lymphatic vessels run along the blood vessels and empty through the caval vein into the blood circulation. The lymphatic system has the following functions:
transport of metabolic end products from the intersitium to the venous blood vessel system (protein, fat and cells)
regulation of the body fluids between the cells
as a part of the immun system involvement in the immune defense
The transport of the lymphatic fluids is effected by rhythmic contraction of the vascular muscles. Those motions are enhanced by the contractions of skeletal muscles.
Disorders of the lymphatic system can result into lymphedema. A lymphedema is a visible and tactile swelling caused by the accumulation of liquids in the tissue. Every edema, for example posttraumatic and postoperativ, is a secondary lymphatic edema.
At the beginning of the therapy the 12 empty chambers of the garment will be successfully filled with air.
The duration of inflation depends, besides the selected time, on the anatomy of the athlete. During the therapy the chambers are filled one after another.
This process transports tissue fluid in proximal direction to reduce the edema.
The pressure and the therapy time, can be adjusted exactly to the athletes needs and the present indication.
When all chambers are inflated the garment will begin to deflate regarding the time which is set for the therapy. After a short break the cycle will start again.
IPC builds a repeating pressure in direction distal to proximal which stimulates and supports the muscular pump. The muscular pump provides, due to the movement of the muscles, the reflux of the venous blood.
The venouse and lymphatic drainage will be noticeably improved. During the pause of the therapy oxiginated blood streams back into the tissue. The therapy increases the blood flow and the metabolism and supports the exchange of gas caused by the mechanical stimulus.
Who is using the V12 PRO?
Triathletes, basketball player, handball player, hockey player, professional teams and other athletes are using our compression therapy system V12 PRO to regenerate their bodies faster and efficiently to help them perform at a high level.
The V12 PRO has become an often routine in the daily schedule for all our professional basketball players in Europe. They recover 1-2 times daily per week. EasyCredit BBL Germany all-star and all-time leading scorer Derrick Allen has been quoted saying, "I have tried other compression therapy devices in the past and the V12 PRO is by far the best for me for rapid regeneration and a quick solution to help rehab injuries rapidly."

2 nd League PRO A team Rasta Vechta in Germany is the first official team to invest in compression
therapy with the V12 PRO. The entire team recovers daily with the “V12 PRO”, coaches also
management can be quoted saying “Investing in every single player on our roster for rapid recovery
at home was the best decision we made in regards to our concerns we had about the team recovery
process throughout the season. At first we had no idea about compression therapy but since 2015
our players are equipped with a top notch device to recover at home and that keeps us certain our
players bodies are always well recovered throughout a long grueling season in Germany“.
2 nd League PRO B team Artland Dragons in Germany decided to invest in compression therapy for
their team in 2017/2018 season. Managing director Marius Kröger can be quoted saying: “The V12 PRO has ensured a low risk for injuries in our team and provides an effective recovery treatment for our players at home.“
Handball can be a little misleading to the eye of some people. The sport requires lots of hours of individual training to perfect the craft at a high level professional worldwide. Frequent intensive body contact and lots of change of direction with speed and athleticism. This can be detrimental to the human body if not recovering the right way throughout the season.
The V12 PRO has become a very popular device for track and field athletes. Endurance and faster
regeneration is extremely important for track and field athletes and National Team sprinters. Click on photos for statement. More photos coming soon.
We have an amount of numerous professional soccer players and physical therapy teams in Germany using the V12 PRO for rapid recovery.
Ice hockey is a full contact sport with high risk of injury. Players are skating at speeds around approximately 20–30 mph (30–50 km/h). The game requires lots of endurance and physical contact between the players. Professional hockey players in Germany use the V12 PRO because of the heavy loaded game schedule throughout the year. They play an average of 2-3 games per week during season with a small window of time for recovery towards regeneration and rehab for injuries.
Physical therapy is used to improve an athlete quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis and physical intervention. The V12 PRO is used often in practice for rapid recovery.
Physical therapists are closely involved in the care and well-being of athletes including recreational, semi-professional (paid) and professional (full-time employment) participants.
There are 5 main categories that are specific practice.
1. Acute care
I was a Physical therapist for FC Bayern München basketball
team for 9 years, I’ve worked with the 2006 German Olympic
team in the Winter Olympics in Torino and deal with many other
teams and athletes - from mountain biking to athletics, racing
bikes and speed skating.
I use the V12 PRO compression therapy system for treatment in
my practice in Munich, Germany.
Since then the device has become an indispensable device,
especially for its versatile use on the patient. For Example: in
the acute patient with swelling after surgery or trauma, even
during rehab of course for faster regeneration in athletes.
Very effective in passive therapy on rehab patients in the
advanced RTA (return to activity) level, where new and
unfamiliar movements and patterns often cause muscle
The 12- Chamber system is an absolute great product! Areas
the V12 PRO attack’s for recovery treatment include: Groin /
adductors / buttocks / abdomen and lower back, Essentially
these are the most important parts of the Lymphatic system and
important central muscle groups. In addition, the slight release
of tension in the lower lumbar spine area is a very pleasant side
