About this work

Also known as

Footpump.

Description

Historically the veins in the foot have not been considered to be important (starting with images of the foot drawn in detail by Leonardo da Vinci). However, Drs Michael Gardner and Roger Fox from Torbay Hospital have become interested in the venous return of the foot. In order to evaluate the venous pressure in the foot, they developed a vertical table to investigate this (shown photographically). The significant benefit to continuing with this research is how to stop thrombosis occuring when a patient is immobilised.
