DVT & Lymphedema Therapy

DVT Preventative Therapies

Hospitals recommend prophylaxis on surgeries 45 minutes and longer to prevent Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT). Compression therapy is no longer an option, it’s a clinical recommendation. Intermittent compression systems help to prevent DVT, one of the leading causes of death in hospitals today.
