Risks of VTE and obesity

Obesity is associated with a high risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) – a leading cause of hospital morbidity and mortality for plus size patients.¹

Flowtron® Active Compression System delivers intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) a simple, easy-to-use method of circulating blood in the deep veins of the legs, reducing venous stasis and helping to prevent the formation of DVT.
