MicroVas Vascular Treatment System

Welcome Back!

Hey everybody!

Welcome back to this week’s discussion on foot facts -what you need to know.
It’s been a while, but I’ll get you up to speed on the 411!

MicroVas Vascular Treatment System

In October of 2006, footDrHorsley began using a remarkable treatment device for wounds and poor circulation called the MicroVas Vascular Treatment System (MicroVas). MicroVas is an electrical stimulation device used to increase circulation to upper and lower extremities or speed up wound healing process.

The latest MicroVas Vascular Treatment System is now in use at the footDrHorsley facilities. For many years, healthcare facilities have used some form of electrical stimulation for wound treatment. MicroVas works to accelerate open wound healing, to trigger and activate the healing processes within the body, to restore muscle and tissue viability, and to assist in pain management.

MicroVas is proven to be more than 90% successful in preventing amputation of lower extremities resulting from non-healing open wounds, in Type II diabetics and many other vascular deficient patients. MicroVas enjoys a near 100% success rate in pain management associated with ischemic rest pain, and diabetic neouropathy. In most cases non-healing diabetic foot or leg ulcers have been completely healed.

footDrHorsley has seen a significant improvement in the recovery process of the patients who had the MicroVas treatment.
