  • Publication number: 20190183406
    Abstract: A method of treating sepsis and septic shock is using a passive simulated exercise device is disclosed. The exercise device functions to increase pulsatile shear stress (friction) to the vascular endothelium. Increased shear stress stimulates release of beneficial mediators from the endothelium into the circulation that promote integrity of the endothelial barrier as well as to prevent its disruption by suppressing inflammation and oxidative stress. The latter is the basis for the deleterious effects of sepsis and septic shock. Failure to control integrity of the endothelial barrier promotes excessive leakage of fluid and proteins from the vasculature into surrounding interstitial fluid that can rapidly escalate into major morbidity, shock and death.

  • Patent number: 9622933
    Abstract: A motorized machine for passively applying a tapping force to the bottoms of a user's feet includes a motor, a pedal rocking mechanism, at least one pedal and at least one bumper configured so as to cooperate to, during operation of the motor, cause the bottom portion of the at least one pedal to tap against the at least one bumper so as to provide pulsatile acceleration to the bottom of the user's foot. The pulsatile acceleration has a force sufficient to increase pulsatile shear stress to the endothelium, of sufficient magnitude to cause the release of beneficial mediators.
