In brief: Machine
Inflatable stockings are attached to the legs and lower trunk.
After the heart empties the stockings inflate pushing blood away from the legs and back towards the heart. When the heart gets ready to empty or beat again the stockings deflate. Stocking inflation may improve nutrition to the heart muscle. Deflation may improve blood flow away from heart.
