Válvula programada ProGAV 2.0

It is a valve that is angle-dependent, that is, the opening pressure changes with the position of the patient's body. To adapt proGAV 2.0 individually to each patient, an opening pressure for the horizontal body position and an opening pressure for the vertical body position are programmed.

Upright body position

In vertical body position, both units act, that is, the gravitational and the adjustable. As soon as the patient gets up, the tantalum ball (green) is activated in the gravitational unit and, with its gravitation, causes an increase in the opening pressure.

Horizontal body position

This increase, up to the maximum in the vertical body position of the patient, acts effectively against the effect of over-drainage.
