Enhanced External Counter Pulsation Program
ECP (External Counter Pulsation) is
a technology that improves blood flow throughout the body, without surgery and without chemicals. It works by using an airbag-like device wrapped around the legs and hips, which squeezes in the same rhythm as the heart. This allows for more blood to return to the heart and increases the blood supply to all the vital organs. In the United States, it is widely regarded as an effective way to increase blood flow to the heart and organs, and to aid in recovery from sports. ECP is akin to Passive Exercise or exercise without physical exertion.
