Intermittent Negative Pressure Therapy (INPT) is a non-invasive method that is performed through a machine, called VACU, which is responsible for the recovery and rehabilitation of the area to be treated through cardiovascular stimulation and improved blood circulation.
It works by alternating the vacuum, combining two phases. It begins by applying negative pressure (capillary dilation) and continues with positive pressure (increased lymphatic flow).
The treatment consists of 30 to 45 minute sessions. The number of sessions will be determined by the specialist’s prescription.
What pathologies does NIPT treat?
It is applied in the treatment of complex wound healing, diabetic foot fractures, psoriasis and skin fungus, among others. There are many other pathologies that it can treat:
- Chronic insufficiency
- Venous insufficiency
- Post thrombotic syndrome
- Vascular problems
- Sports recovery
- Weak tissue
- Lactic acid elimination
- Varicose veins
- Muscular stress
- Swollen feet
- Fiber injuries
Advantages of Intermittent Negative Pressure Therapy
The main advantages offered by this therapy are:
- Cardiovascular stimulation
- Improvement of blood circulation
- Activation of lymphatic flow
- Acceleration of wound healing
- Analgesic effect, i.e. pain relief
