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.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

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.

EFFECT

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."

Contact

We started this project in 2013 and we have received nothing but positive feedback ever since. We have athletes and professional players all over Europe that recover smart with the V12 PRO.

I’m a retired 10 year basketball professional in Germany. Me personally, I’ve used other compression therapy systems throughout my career and the V12 PRO was by far the best choice for me. I deal with a lot of physical therapist in teams and they all have told me that the V12 PRO is great for rapid recovery and also helps manage injuries. Their players love it and are always in debate to whom gets to take the V12 PRO home with them that day after practice.
People always ask me what makes your system different then others? We have statistical and medical facts to prove our theory that the V12 PRO is a top notch device that every athlete would love to have in their home waiting on them after every workout and competition.
