Due to my using a power wheelchair all day for 6 years, I have developed swelling(edema) in my ankles & calfs. Recently the edema has gotten quite bad in the fleshy area on top of both feet. It is often quite painful at the end of the day. Compression stockings are unuseable due my greatly reduced upper body strength. Can you recommend a product that provides repetitive and sequential air pressure to move the fluids toward the heart?

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
