AiroGym

1-Pack

The Airogym Exerciser is a portable and inflatable cushion for resistance-based exercise that helps improve blood flow in the lower legs. It's ideal for those who are deskbound, travelling, have swollen ankles during pregnancy, diabetics, the elderly and immobile – and patients receiving physiotherapy for muscle and joint pain.

Simple to use and small enough to take anywhere, the Airogym is used by world-leading Vascular Surgeon John Scurr to help support his patients' recovery. It was originally designed to help prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) on plane journeys of 4+ hours, as well as e-thrombosis (DVT resulting from excessive time spent sitting at a desk) and help people with swollen ankles. Airogym has many wide-ranging applications and is endorsed by numerous medical experts including John Scurr, a World-leading Consultant Vascular Surgeon.

The science behind Airogym

The resistance created by Airogym is key to how the exerciser effectively works to boost blood flow in the lower legs. By pressing down on the footpad, veins in the foot are compressed, squeezing blood into the main veins in the calf. The pressure involved in squeezing the foot causes muscular contraction of the calf muscle, again promoting the flow of blood through the main veins. Without the resistance provided by Airogym, simple exercises such as circling the ankles or stretching your legs whilst seated may provide momentary relief, but have little effect on your actual blood flow.

By pressing your heels and toes into the pad in a variety of different exercises, the veins in the feet are compressed, squeezing blood into the major veins of the calf muscle to promote blood flow. Ideal for those who spend long hours sitting at a desk, are at risk from DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) when flying long-haul – and anyone who suffers from poor circulation in the feet and legs, including diabetics, during pregnancy, and when receiving physiotherapy for muscle and joint pain.

How to use the Airogym Exercise Cushion?

Once inflated, you can use the Airogym Cushion to exercise. This is fairly easy to do, and once you're used to it, you can alternate the positions in which you exercise. To use:

Main Exercises:

  • Position one foot on cushion with heel on the one pad, toe on the other. Alternate heel then toe press. Repeat onto the other foot.
  • Position heels on cushion and keep your toes on the floor. Alternate heel pressing which should work the back of the calf.
  • Position toes onto the cushion and push your heels on the floor. Press down on your toes which should work the front of your shins.
  • Position both feet on the cushion. Press down on each foot, which should work the thighs.

Alternative Exercises:

  • Place the Airogym on your lap and alternate hand presses for working the upper body.
  • Place the Airogym under your legs while lying and press down on each leg.
  • Place the Airogym under the armpit and rock the arm against the chest.
