Do you know about this device?

My father is working on a campaign for the "Venowave", a Canadian inventor's medical device that helps prevent amputations in diabetes. I'm spreading the news about this great device.
Note from Martha Zimmer: I checked out the Venowave. It is a portable calf compression device that helps prevent clots (called thromboses) in the legs of diabetics and others who are at risk.
It has been tested and shown to make a difference for people after surgery, a time when leg clots often form.
The Venowave uses intermittent compression on the calf muscles, which mimics the action of leg exercise.
Right now it is available in Canada.
Thank you for bringing this device to our attention, Mr. DeRapp!
