Peripheral arterial disease is on the rise worldwide - but a new treatment method is on its way

How can future health systems deal with the rise in peripheral arterial disease? A new treatment modality allows patients with reduced circulation in their limbs to apply a non-invasive negative pressure device designed to increase blood flow to an extremity. The device uses many of the same principles as physical exercise, which is today’s gold standard for non-invasive treatment of reduced circulation due to clogged blood vessels. The method is based on the principle of applying pulsating negative pressure to the extremity. Industrial Ph.D. candidate Øyvind H. Sundby is currently conducting research on the new device at Otivio AS and Oslo University Hospital (Aker) together with his Ph.D. advisors Jonny Hisdal, Jørgen Jørgensen and Iacob Mathiesen. Otivio was founded by CEO Iacob Mathiesen. Sundby’s project has received funding from the Research Council through the Industrial Ph.D. scheme.
