VEINOPLUS® V.I. is a medical electro-stimulation device with therapeutic effects upon various symptoms of Venous Insufficiency. These effects have been demonstrated and documented in several clinical studies  made since 2004 in France, UK, USA and Russia DIV>
Over 150 000 people with venous problems in 40 countries have already chosen the technology VEINOPLUS® V.I. STRONG> FONT> DIV> LI> UL>
Epidemiology Pain is the main complaint that leads to the diagnosis of venous disease and it has a significant impact on patient’s quality of life ( 1). According to a study conducted on 13 131 patients with probable venous disease, 73.7% of patients complain of painful legs and 33.1% of pain in the veins ( 2). There is no close relationship between pain as a symptom and the severity of venous disease. Patients with no venous insufficiency can feel painful sensations. (3 ).
Pathology Pain of venous origin is often multifaceted and is frequently associated with other unpleasant sensations, often difficult to describe, which do not belong to the range of symptoms of nociception, i.e., a sensation of heaviness, cramps, and tension in the legs, or pruritus (1). Pain mechanisms in venous disease are not yet fully understood. The hypothesis of a local inflammatory origin related to venous stasis is made.
Factors of Risk • Venous stasis (prolonged sitting or standing, periods of the menstrual cycle etc.) • Varicose
VEINOPLUS® Action • Reduction of venous stasis • Increase of venous return • Rapid reduction of pain and unpleasant sensations in legs • Improvement in QUALITY OF LIFE • Can be used by pregnant women (see VEINOPLUS® and pregnancy-related IV)
Clinical Data of VEINOPLUS® Several studies made on VEINOPLUS® have investigated the effect of the device on venous pain.
