DS Maref shows a circulatory device for blood and lymph in COEX KIMES 2019
DS Maref, which develops medical devices using air pressure, introduced different types of medical devices for orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation at the 35th International Medical Equipment & Hospital Equipment Exhibition (KIMES 2019) that runs Mar. 14-17 in COEX.
Unlike other medical constrictors that can cause injury due to excessive force, devices of DS Maref are not only safe and soft for use but it also helps in the circulation of stagnant blood and lymph through complete contact pressure. Especially, when a breast cancer patient suffers a lymphoedema after surgery, air pressure can be used instead of compression bandage because it is a device that can naturally lead the circulation of the body fluids through air pressure without discomfort. Based on the direction of air pressure being infused, the blood and lymph circulate sequentially.
Products based on this principle are DVT-300, which is a phlebothrombosis prevention system, DVT-PRO, DTS-3000, and Lympha-flow (LF400).
CTC7, which can process cold and warm pressure through a small quantity of distilled water, is also a product of DS Maref. The existing products had the inconvenience of having to constantly change the ice, but CTC7 is a product that has maximally enhanced the convenience of the patient and custodian because it has a similar function of the instant heater.
Joong-Hyun Lee, vice president of DS Maref, said: "By diversifying the air pressure applied medical devices, we are going to continue researching and developing to help patients with various diseases by overcoming the problems face in today's reality of surgery and rehabilitation which are limited to certain medical devices."
