Lightweight, breathable 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).
Simple and effective DVT prevention
Adding compression to a limb using Flowtron garments increases blood velocity in the deep veins of that limb. This reduces venous stasis1 and stimulates fibrinolysis2, 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.
