AIRVEIN simulates walking in a sitting position.
The whole foot rests on the cushion filled with air and an exercise is completed by moving the air between the compartments
of the cushion.
By pushing the feet on the cushion, the user makes an effort similar to walking upright. This movement activates the calf
muscle pump and blood flow.
The muscular effort during exercises with AIRVEIN is more important than the simple flexion of the foot.
The exercises relieve aching legs.
This movement is also called the Active Vascular Gymnastics.

The recommended frequency of the exercise is 5 minutes per hour of immobility and limitless if necessary (in line with WHO
recommendations - WRIGHT).
The exercises are equally effective with shodden feet as with bare feet.
AIRVEIN is compact, transportable, self-contained, self-inflating. There are no restrictions to its use. It is authorized to be use
on an aircraft. It requires no power source.
