GALAXY is a pressotherapy device used to perform a peristaltic massage of the patient’s lower limbs in the disto-proximal direction. Treatment cycles with GALAXY allow to intervene on the patient physiologically where a constant therapeutic support for diseases derived from an altered functionality of the patient’s lymphatic or venous circulation is needed.
GALAXY is constituted of a compressor that, by inflating the internal air chambers of an inelastic legging especially designed by BAC Technology, generates a positive pressure on the patient’s lower limbs.
Thanks to its software-controlled valves for the inflation and deflation of the air chambers inside the legging, the pressure sensors in each chamber enable the device to maintain a constant amount of pressure on the patient’s limbs regardless of the patient’s size, thereby distributing the compressive action on the limbs uniformly.
A pressure wave therefore performs a drainage massage on the patient’s lower limbs, generating a beneficial effect on the blood and lymphatic circulation and reducing stasis, muscle tension and pain. Thanks to such effects, the use of GALAXY is particularly indicated or the treatment of primary and secondary lymphedema and syndromes related to venous-lymphatic disorders.
Similarly, the benefits of using GALAXY are numerous in the fields of sports medicine, post-operative rehabilitation and as a device for the prophylaxis and treatment of pressure sores.
To perform an effective drainage massage, the legging must produce a continuous pressure wave on the patient’s leg. In GALAXY, this effect has been obtained by dividing the inelastic legging in a series of air chambers positioned sequentially along the legging.
One of the main features that makes pressotherapy an effective treatment is its operating cycle, i.e. the way in which the device applies the pressure sequentially through the sections of the legging. In this regard, BAC’s proprietary design of GALAXY has provided for the division of the legging into eight sections with a 40% surface overlap between air chambers, in order to give continuity to the pressure wave and avoid any risks of stagnation or retrograde flows.
Moreover, the possibility of customizing the preset pressure parameters and therapeutic programs for treatment of the individual sections of the legging makes GALAXY a versatile device fully adaptable to the therapeutic needs of every case.
