Other Flowtron product(s)
Huntleigh Flowtron FPR is a lightweight medical compression pump designed for the treatment of vascular or lymphatic illnesses including lymphedema, venous insufficiency, venous stasis ulcers, and localized edema. Compression Therapy Pumps assist fluid and blood flow in the limbs of the body. By applying sequential compression to a limb via specially designed garments, blood flow is increased and extra-cellular fluid is cleared. Flowtron FPR Pump is simple to use with preset cycles and adjustable pressure settings. The Flowtron FPR pump is manufactured by Huntleigh, a leader in medical grade compression pumps. This Lymphedema Pump System is ideal for safe compression therapy in the home, hospitals, nursing homes, and treatment clinics.
Huntleigh Flowtron FPR Lymphedema Pump offers three chamber non-gradient sequential therapy for an adjustable pressure range of 30-100mmHg for the treatment of various types of lymphedema. The Flowtron FPR Lymphedema Compression Pump is designed so that each of the three chambers has its own air supply and each chamber pressure remains the same as the chambers progressively fill up the limb. The Flowtron FPR Lymphedema Pump is capable of 2 limb compression with simply purchasing the "Bilateral Connector". Compression sleeves and the Bilateral Adapter are sold separately but each sleeve comes complete with hoses to connect to the compression pump.
The Huntleigh Flowtron FPR Lymphedema Pump System has been ergonomically designed for efficient use in many different situations from the clinic to the home. The controls, indicators, and connectors are simple to use and can be accessed with ease. Thoughtful design features mean the compression pump can be handled, transported and stored safely and easily. Huntleigh Flowtron FPR Compression Pump therapy offers three-chamber non-gradient sequential therapy. The Flowtron Hydroven FPR System, with its sturdy, dependable pump, is unsurpassed for enhancing lymphatic and venous flow.

Huntleigh also manufactures the Flowtron Hydroven 3 Compression Pump. Many feel the Flowtron FPR and Hydroven 3 compression pumps are equally effective at treating varying types of lymphedema. Deciding over one or the other is primarily a physician's preference, though both compression pumps are equally effective. Huntleigh Flowtron FPR Compression Pump therapy offers three chamber non-gradient sequential therapy. The Hydroven 3 has a shorter inflate (length of compression time) over the Flowtron FPR and a longer deflate time. This provides an equal squeeze compression time (90 seconds) and equal rest period (90 seconds) between inflations. The comparitive chart below displays the attributes of both Huntleigh Compression Pump options.
