Healthcare - Beyond Comfort
Blood clots can develop in the lower limbs during or following extended periods of inactivity often associated with hospitalisation or time spent in a care home. Clinical trials performed on ProBax® technology show a direct correlation between improved posture and enhanced blood flow. By reducing the degree of constriction in the blood vessels, ProBax® enhances blood flow and reduces the chances of clot formation for patients whose movement is restricted.
Increased blood flow can aid movement and help prevent numbness in the legs thereby reducing the risk of a fall. ProBax® promotes postural stability and allows a patient to sit upright, encouraging social interaction instead of slouching with an eye line towards the floor. Agitation is lessened and early studies suggest potential improvement to digestion and lung function.
