How does ECP work?
Once comfortable on the Renew Therapy treatment bed, inflatable cuffs (similar to blood pressure cuffs) are wrapped around the calves, thighs and hips. ECG sensors are then placed on the chest for heartbeat detection. During treatment, the cuffs inflate and deflate in time with each heartbeat. Inflation happens sequentially from the calves up to the hip, boosting blood flow in and around the heart. The rhythmic pulsing of the cuffs is firm, yet comfortable – like a robust leg massage.
Helping people lead more active lives
Severe angina symptoms can make it difficult to maintain an active life or even perform the simplest tasks. A full programme of ECP treatments has shown to reduce angina symptoms (chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness). This, in turn, can lead to a reduction in some medication use. Evidence shows that over 80% of patients with refractory angina experience an overall improvement in quality of life and an increase in their energy levels. The ongoing benefits of this medical treatment can last for a number of years after treatment. Of course, like many treatments, patients may respond differently to the treatment.
Many people have received Renew ECP Therapy in treatment centres across the UK. Caroline received treatment at a London treatment centre and experienced remarkable results.
