Protocol

Ordering the ArtAssist® device requires a physician’s prescription and rental agreement.ArtAssist device patient

Patients in Medicare, Medicaid, the Veterans Administration or Tricare should contact us to discuss coverage.

Once payment is determined, the device and all accessories will be shipped directly to the patient. It is easy to use; there is no need for a clinician to operate the device. Patients need only turn on one switch (all timing and pressures are preset) and the device automatically turns off after therapy is completed.

The recommended therapy is 3 hours a day, broken up into one-hour sessions. In a study published in Archives of Surgery, patients in whom limb salvage was achieved used the ArtAssist® device for longer periods of time (mean time, 2.38 hours a day) compared with those who underwent amputation (mean time, 1.14 hours a day) (p<.05).

Very often, patients rent the ArtAssist® device from ACI Medical on a Month-to-Month basis or a 3-month rental plan at a discounted rate. The average rental period is 3 – 5 months; however, patients may also purchase it.

ArtAssist® device renters benefit from a full warranty for the length of the rental. All parts and service are guaranteed at no additional cost.
