Sonostics HeartPartner

New from Sonostics is the HeartPartner, a noninvasive soleus muscle stimulation device designed to prevent or reverse lower limb edema and venous pooling, along with asso­­ciated symptoms, including varicose veins and leg cramps. The HeartPartner provides a mechanical stimulation to the plantar surface, activating the postural reflex arc that initiates soleus muscle contraction to return venous and lymphatic fluid to the heart. The cyclic activation also helps convert fast-twitch soleus muscle fibers back to slow-twitch fibers. A built-in pacing feature helps prevent muscle fatigue during extended use.
