Lightweight, breathable IPC calf garments for DVT prevention
Designed to provide comfort for the patient, simplicity for the user and flexibility for healthcare facilities. Flowtron® garments are effective in the prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
Adding compression to a limb using Flowtron garments increases blood velocity in the deep veins of that limb. This then reduces venous stasis (1) and stimulates fibrinolysis (2), which is the body’s natural method of preventing and breaking down blood clots.
Comfort and compliance
Lightweight, breathable fabric garments ensure comfort and help prevent the build-up of heat and moisture.
Easily identifiable garments means simple visual confirmation to ensure compliance with the patient’s prescribed DVT prevention treatment.
New! DVT60L for bariatric calves up to 32” / 81cm
We are pleased to announce the availability of our latest product – for bariatric patients with calves sized up to 32” / 81cm.
Obesity, including morbid obesity, is associated with a high risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) - a leading cause of hospital morbidity and mortality(3). It is an independent risk factor for sudden, postoperative fatal PE. (4)
For IPC to be effective, the garment needs to fit the limb correctly, whilst allowing flexibility for variation in leg sizes. DVT60L, is sized specifically for the needs of bariatric patients. Shaped to fit calf size up to 32” / 81cm circumference, it mimics the body’s natural method of moving blood through the deep veins.
