Think facilitating perfusion..
Elevating edematous swollen legs promotes venous return and a decrease in swelling.
Dangling legs over the bed helps relieve the painful symptoms of someone with PAD -peripheral artery disease.
Just a term for using gravity to either shunt blood to (arteries) or away (veins) from the effected extremities :-)
