Diabetes and Wound Healing

Bodyflow® Blood flow is essential for the provision of oxygen and nutrients to all the cells of the body – for both living and healing. The main force of this flow of blood is provided by the heart, whilst contraction and relaxation of arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels maintain the continual flow of blood throughout the body. Body Flow Technology, actively stimulates the smooth muscle within the blood vessels (which allow the contraction and relaxation to occur), thereby accelerating the rate at which the circulation is supplied to a particular area.

Circulation problems and symptoms which can benefit from Body Flow:

Diabetes Mellitus is diagnosed when there is an abnormally high levels of sugar circulating within the blood stream. There are approximately 1 million people in Australia that suffer from Diabetes Mellitus. A common complication associated with this disease is Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD); A condition resulting in damage to the vessels in the extremities, particularly the legs and feet. It is caused by poor circulation (blood flow), which can manifest itself as sores, wounds or ulcers that fail to or result in prolonged healing. As blood flow is essential for the provision of oxygen and nutrients to all the cells of the body – for both living and healing, using Bodyflow® technology can help influence the rate at which the blood flows to the problematic area, hence enhancing the body's ability to heal the wounds or ulcers more efficiently, avoiding further complications such as gangrene.

Bodyflow® technology has been clinically proven to improve healing and recovery associated with the adverse effects of diabetes, therefore minimizing discomfort and the need for surgical intervention.
