Physicians at Global Cardio Care Centers, the largest independent physician practice dedicated to delivery of Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP®), released findings today showing improvement in some motor skills in people suffering from stroke after 35 hours of EECP treatment or more.
EECP therapy is a safe, non-surgical cardiovascular treatment for people suffering from angina pectoris, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, and heart disease. It also provides benefit for those who experience hypertension, stroke and diabetes. Clinical studies show, more than 75 percent of patients benefit from EECP and sustain improvement long term post- treatment. With additional courses of EECP treatment, more positive effects can be realized.
“Many people who have had previous stroke visit Global Cardio Care Centers to experience EECP treatment,” said Sara Soulati, CEO of Global Cardio Care, Inc. and manager of the physician practice Global Cardio Care Centers. “With consistent EECP treatment, physicians see anecdotal evidence of marked improvement in motor functions of stroke victims such as walking, balance, speech, and vision.”
Global Cardio Care Centers delivers some 25,000 hours of EECP treatment annually to a service area surrounding Inglewood within Los Angeles. Its patient base is predominantly African-Americans who have a high incidence of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and the effects of stroke.

A stroke causes brain tissues to die due to blockages in the arteries of the brain. EECP works while you simply lie on a comfortable bed. Three blood pressure cuffs are placed around the calves, thighs and buttocks. When the heart is at rest, the cuffs pump oxygenated blood from the legs up to the heart. Due to increased blood flow to the heart and brain, EECP helps move blood through the arteries of the brain that are blocked and stimulates growth of new arterials, called collaterals. This increased blood flow enhances healing, improves structural integrity of tissue and blood vessels, and helps improve direct motor functions such as walking, balance, speech, or vision.
EECP is a regenerative therapy like a second heart pumping when the body’s heart is at rest. Clinical studies prove that EECP naturally bypasses blocked arteries, called angiogenesis, to form new pathways for the blood to flow.
