Brief Summary:
Aim of this prospective clinical study is the Evaluation of the Effect of Compression Therapy on the Microcirculation in Patients With Leg Edema and Mild to Moderate PAD or Diabetes Mellitus.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Peripheral Arterial Disease Diabetes Mellitus Leg Edema Device: Compression Therapy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Aim of this prospective clinical study is the Evaluation of the Effect of Compression Therapy on the Microcirculation in Patients With Leg Edema and Mild to Moderate PAD or Diabetes Mellitus. The microcirculation should be assessed by a combination of laserdoppler flowmetry and white light tissue spectrometry (O2C Device, Parameters sO2, Flow, rHb). By this, it is possible to detect the influence of the compression therapy on the skin microcirculation.

Therefore, three study arms should be investigated, all patients clinically suffering under leg edema: healthy volunteers, patients with mild to moderate PAD and diabetics. All patients are recieveing compression therapy (Compression stockings class I for three hours, after a short break compression stockings class II for 3 hours) under Perfusion assessment control (O2C device).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: mild to moderate PAD Device: Compression Therapy
Therapy of the leg edema with compression stockings class I for three hours, after a short break with compression stocking class II for again three hours.

Active Comparator: Diabetes mellitus Device: Compression Therapy
Therapy of the leg edema with compression stockings class I for three hours, after a short break with compression stocking class II for again three hours.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by questionnaire [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    The Adverse Events are defined in the questionnaire as: Abort of the Therapy, Pressure marks, Quantification of the wearing comfort (Points 1-10), subjective reduction of the leg edema (Points 1-10)

  2. sO2 [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    The Perfusion Situation should be recorded on the Level of Microcirculation by the Parameter sO2

  3. Flow [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    The Perfusion Situation should be recorded on the Level of Microcirculation by the Parameter Flow

  4. rHb [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    The Perfusion Situation should be recorded on the Level of Microcirculation by the Parameter rHb
