    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 :-)
