Bio Arterial Plus
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) therapy is the process of applying external pressure to the limbs to promote the circulation of blood to the extremities of the body. The Bio Arterial Plus is a High Pressure, Rapid Cycle IPC System that sequentially compresses the foot and calf in patients suffering from Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).
IPC therapy should be used under the GUIDANCE OF A HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. Always USE ONLY AS DIRECTED and see your healthcare professional if you have concerns regarding your treatment.
Bio Arterial Plus is a user friendly system that enhances arterial blood flow from the comfort of your home.
All equipment adheres to Australian healthcare standards in cleaning and disinfection between clients. In addition to our rigorous methods, our facilities are regularly tested by an independent laboratory to ensure cleanliness and safety.

Intermittent pneumatic compression may be useful for conditions that require improved circulation to the limbs. Speak to your therapist, wound care nurse, GP or vascular surgeon for their opinion. The Bio Arterial Plus can be used in the comfort of the home yielding great results with a 1-hour treatment session.
The Bio Arterial Plus system is an adjunct therapy for patients with:
- Ischaemic disease of the lower extremities
- Amputations (minor)
- Angioplasty/ Stent failure
- Arteriopathic wounds
- Graft failure
- Intermittent claudication
- Rest pain, Night pain
- Small vessel disease
Regular home management of oedema using IPC can be more cost effective long term than one-on-one therapy sessions.
Pneumatic compression therapy is easy and comfortable. If you find compression stockings hot or difficult to put on, a compression pump might be the answer. The high pressure (120mmHg) and fast cycle programme prevents occlusion.
By applying pressure to the surface of the limb it promotes the circulation of blood throughout the body. As each chamber inflates and deflates, blood flow is increased towards the body’s extremities. The application of high-level, rapid pressure (120mmHg) optimises venous emptying and leads to an increase in the arterio-venous pressure gradient. This causes a significant increase in oxygenated arterial calf inflow that has been proven to be sustainable over time. (Alvares, 2015; Delis, 2005).
