The Doctor Life massage systems operate according to the Intermittent Pneumatic Compression principle ( IPC) , both for professional and home use. The systems are available in more than 70 countries and now also in the Netherlands. IPC stimulates the lymphatic system, blood circulation and muscles, using cuffs that are subsequently filled withair. IPC is used for edema therapy, improving physical condition (sports and fitness) , improving mobility and wellness . The systems are characterized by a hitherto unprecedented price / performance ratio .North Sea Health Care BV is the official importer of these systems.
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression ( IPC) is designed to contribute to the treatment of various disorders of the lymphatic and circulatorysystem . Especially in the treatment of edema of the arm or leg (often as a result of surgery ) IPC is increasingly deployed to support the treatment by physician or therapist. A major advantage is that patients can partly perform the treatment at home. Often a less oppressive therapeutic elastic stocking can be used , which is much less stressful.
Athletes know what massage can do for the body. Unfortunately, only a few ( top) athletes have access to a private sports massage therapist. Thanks to Doctor Life IPC massage equipment a regular (sports ) massage comes within the reach of every athlete. Regular use of IPC promotes the removal of waste products and supply of nutrients through the lymphatic and circulatory system , causing the overall physical condition to improve. Did you know that Simone Biles applies an IPC massage system every day and became the world’s best gymnast?
With decreasing health care services in prospect , it’s even more important to stay mobile as long as possible. Mobility is largely determined by the legs. Caused by prolonged sitting , eating habits and smoking already one of three adults has leg problems ( fluid retention ,varicose veins, claudication ) .Regular use of IPC can give a significant contribution to maintain healthy legs by activating the lymphatic and circulatory system and massaging the muscles.
Massage is relaxing and reduces stress . In Oriental culture it is a natural part of life , but in the West we are not yet used to it. The Doctor Life IPC systems allow a professional massage, performed inthe safe confines of your own home. Fatigue will disappear and your skin will be smoother. Massage also helps well when suffering from cold hands and feet.
