EECP history begins in the 1950s at Harvard University. At t his time in the earliest days of EECP history, the first counterpulsation technology with water hydraulics was invented. Soon thereafter, scientists and engineers in China collaborated with Americans to create what we know today as Enhanced External Counterpulsation or EECP. The term Enhanced External Counterpulsation was coined in the 1990s by Dr. John Hui, a founder of Vasomedical. He and his collaborators went on to describe an improved, proprietary technology for better ECP therapy.
In the annals of EECP, initial technology addressed chronic stable angina pectoris. Several clinical trials were conducted and worldwide, scientists, researchers and academicians have completed studies featuring EECP on a variety of clinical diagnoses.
