The VascuTherm™ 5 therapy system is capable of performing therapies for the following:
Pneumatic Compression Therapy
Compression therapy provides compressed air to the therapy wrap and transfers pressure to the treatment site. This added external pressure aids in reducing the pooling of blood and lymphatic fluid in the targeted extremity. The compression treatment provided by the unit uses a preset pressure setting and cycle time.
Cold therapy passes cool fluid through the wrap for the management of pain, discomfort, and swelling. If prescribed, cold therapy can be used in combination with Pneumatic Compression therapy. Temperature range 43 F° to 49° F.
Heat therapy passes 105° F fluid through the wrap for the management of pain and discomfort. If prescribed, heat therapy can be used in combination with pneumatic compression therapy.
Thermal Contrast Therapy
Thermal contrast therapy passes fluid through the wrap in an alternating cycle of cool-heat-cool-heat for the management of pain, discomfort and swelling. During thermal contrast therapy, the unit will cool down the circulating fluid to 49°F for twenty (20) minutes and then heat up to 105°F for ten (10) minutes. This cycle is repeated until the prescribed duration of treatment is completed.
Precise Temperature Control
- Fluid Therapy Temperature Range between 43°F – 49°F to 105°F
Compression Therapy (3 settings)

Localized thermal therapy (hot or cold) for post traumatic and post-surgical medical and/or surgical conditions.
Reduction of edema associated with soft-tissue injuries such as burns, post-operative edema, and ligament sprains. Treat and assist healing of cutaneous ulceration (wounds), reduce healing time, enhance arterial circulation (blood flow), reduce compartmental pressures, reduce edema (swelling), reduce the need for anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications.
Decrease the risk of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Aids the blood flow back to the heart.
Treatment of disorders associated with vascular or lymphatic insufficiency such as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), venous stasis ulcers, post-mastectomy edema and chronic lymphedema.
