What is Venowave? The Venowave is a lightweight, compact battery operated, peristaltic pump that generates a wave-form motion. The mechanics behind the Venowave are based upon patented wave generating technology developed by John Saringer and licensed to SARINGER LS from Somawave Inc. When worn firmly on the calf the Venowave produces upward volumetric displacement forcing blood from the feet and legs back to the heart. This increase in venous and lymph flow prevents blood pooling, clot formation, and the debilitating effects of several chronic circulatory diseases. Ongoing research and enhancements to the Venowave has led to five versions being developed over the last few years. The latest version, the VW5, is shown at right. The VW5 is available in four models with varying wave frequency dependent upon the unique needs of the patient. The four models are: VW5-6, VW5-10, VW5-20 and the VW5-30. The second number refers to the number of full-length wave cycles the Venowave model performs in a minute. The Venowave is very compact with the device weighing only 260g and measuring about 3"x9".
