Effective DVT Treatment
A prophylactic device treats deep vein thrombosis (DVT) by applying static compression to an adjustable sleeve. An ideal solution for DVT, post-thrombotic syndrome, athletic massage, venous insufficiency and dependent edema, this new device is made of heat and moisture wicking materials and features a slim form factor, making it easy to put on and comfortable to wear under regular clothing. Patients can easily control the static compression, and they can adjust the level of compression on their own, at any time, via a twist dial.
Alternative to Traditional DVT Treatment
Traditional compression stockings and sleeves are effective but pose drawbacks that keep patients from wearing them. For example, stockings can be uncomfortable, hot and itchy and may require custom fitting and adjustments to compression levels and gradients. For these reasons, patients may choose not to cooperate with these treatments. By making a comfortable elastic sleeve and giving the patient control over the degree of compression, this new device will likely increase patient compliance.
