Designed with flexibility and simplicity in mind, the Huntleigh Flowtron AC600 compression device, available for rent or sale from US Med-Equip, is a provides clinically effective, non-invasive mechanical compression for the prophylaxis of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Its simple three-in-one design provides the clinician with a choice of foot, calf or thigh compression from a single pump. By providing compression to a limb, the Flowtron Universal System helps prevent thrombus formation by increasing blood velocity in the deep veins, reducing stasis1 and stimulating fibrinolysis2 – the body’s natural method of preventing and breaking down clots. Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) has additional clinical benefits and has been shown to reduce edema and post operative pain, enhance circulation, assist in wound healing, provide a drier post-operative field and reduce wound hematoma.
Intelligent prevention of DVT
• Unique SmartSense™ Garment Recognition System allows the pump to automatically identify the type of garments attached and adjusts the therapy cycle accordingly, ensuring optimal prophylaxis is achieved every time
• State of the art pump technology recognizes when one garment only has been attached and allows for single garment use
• Intelligent audio and visual alarm facility identifies true alarm conditions and minimizes disruption to the patient and carer
• Continuous real-time monitoring ensures the system delivers optimal therapy conditions even with variations in set up, garment application and patient movement
