Compression is one of the main pillars in the treatment of venous leg ulcers. Dynamic compression, also known as Intermittent pneumatic compression or IPC, is one method of compression. The dynamic compression devices have chambers that inflate and deflate separately. The sequential inflation and deflation of the chambers creates pressure on different areas of the leg at different intervals of time, mimicking the effect and benefits of walking (calf muscle pump). It might be useful for patients with reduced mobility or weakness of the calf muscle
