A: Massage Programme:
Chamber 1 is inflated to the set pressure, retains the air for a moment, and is then deflated. Chamber 2 will repeat chamber 1, and this process continues until chamber 8. After this there will be a brief interval and then the inflation process will be repeated.
B: Powerful Lymph Drainage Programme:
This program achieves a powerful drainage which maintains pressure from the foot and upwards until deflation. Chamber 1 is inflated to the set pressure. Pressure is retained; chamber 2 is inflated to the set pressure, retaining pressure. This process is repeated till all 8 chambers are inflated. Finally all chambers are simultaneously deflated, and next inflation will be repeated.
C: Compression Programme:
Chambers 1 – 8 are simultaneously inflated to the set pressure, and then simultaneously deflated. The programme is resumed after a brief interval.
D: Moderate Lymph Drainage Programme: – with 2 chambers at a time:
This programme is the most ”gentle” drainage programme, quite similar to manual drainage. Chamber 1 is inflated, retaining pressure; chamber 2 is inflated, retaining pressure. While chamber 1 is deflated, chamber 3 will be inflated. Thus, this 2-chamber process will be repeated till chamber 8 – the pressure is therefore less intense, and the foot will remain free.
E: Moderate Lymph Drainage Programme: – with 3 chambers at a time:
As compared with programme D, this programme is firmer, albeit less intense than programme B, and the foot will remain free half the time. Chamber 1 is inflated, retaining pressure. Next chambers 2 and 3 are inflated and pressure retained. The pressure of chamber 1 is released while chamber 4 is inflated. Thus, this 3-chamber process will be repeated till chamber 8.
F: Drainage/Pulsating Programme: Chamber 1 is inflated to the set pressure, 4 pulsations while retaining pressure. Next Chamber 2 is inflated, pulsation while retaining the pressure of chamber 1. Chamber 3 is inflated, pulsating while pressure in both 1 and 2 is retained. Next the pressure of chamber 1 is released while chamber 4 is inflated. This way, there will always be 3 inflated chambers at a time – right up to chamber 8, whereupon the process is repeated.
