The Dayspring system is an FDA-cleared, prescription-only, active gradient sequential compression treatment indicated for lymphedema, venous insufficiency, and reducing wound healing time. It is an adjunctive treatment intended for use in a clinic or home setting by medical professionals and patients who are under medical supervision.

Am I a good candidate for Dayspring?

downward arrow toggle

The Dayspring system is indicated for the treatment of lymphedema, chronic edema, venous insufficiency, and to reduce wound healing time. For full usage and prescribing information, see Directions for Use.  

It is the first and only wearable, dynamic active compression system that is not plugged into the wall, enabling essential movement and mobility during treatment. This advanced lymphedema and venous treatment provides active compression while minimizing interference with daily activities.

Talk with your provider about your treatment options and see if Dayspring is right for you. Contact us at info@koyamedical.com to learn more

How does the Dayspring treatment provide compression?

downward arrow toggle icon

Dayspring is built upon an innovative, non-pneumatic (airless), mobile platform using Koya’s patented Flexframe(™) technology. Flexframes are highly durable, spring-like segments that use shape-memory alloy (SMA) that contracts and relaxes when connected to the Dayspring controller.

SMA has widely been used in medical technologies to treat a variety of conditions and is weaved into the garment to deliver controlled and customizable therapeutic compression similar to those provided by traditional pumps. Dayspring provides the treatment you need while allowing you the freedom of motion and making natural muscle contractions and joint movement possible.

downward arrow toggle icon

Dayspring has been evaluated and studied across multiple clinical studies which have consistently demonstrated that the system is safe and effective, both after acute-use in the clinic and after extended in-home use.

In the most recent randomized multicenter study, Dayspring demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvements in edema volume reduction, quality of life, and adherence when compared with a traditional pneumatic pump (E652 device).

Can I take my Dayspring with me on an airplane?

downward arrow toggle icon

Yes, the ability to travel with your Dayspring system is important for adhering to your prescribed therapy when you’re on the go.

•  Due to its rechargeable battery, and to protect it from being lost or damaged, your Dayspring system should be taken as a carry-on and not packed in your checked luggage.

•  When passing through security, it’s best to carry it in the Koya carrying case along with the user manual in case an agent asks for clarification of its purpose.  It can also be helpful to bring your script or a letter from your doctor just in case.

What should I do if I receive an insurance Denial Letter?

downward arrow toggle icon

Denial Letters are common, and often do not represent the insurance company’s final decision. Please keep in mind that Koya Medical’s Patient Advocates will work with your insurance company to have your Dayspring approved. Upon receiving a Denial Letter, you do not need to take any action unless we request follow-up information from you, and you do not need to make any payments. We will continue to advocate for you! You may continue to use your Dayspring as directed by your healthcare provider.
