Designed with flexibility and simplicity in mind, the Huntleigh Flowtron Universal DVT Prophylaxis System provides clinically effective, non-invasive mechanical compression for the prophylaxis of DVT.
Its simple three-in-one design provides the clinician with a choice of calf, thigh or foot 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 stasis and stimulating fibrinolysis – the body’s natural method of preventing and breaking down clots.
Integral anti-kink tubing
Clear and informative LCD display
Highly visible power and alarm indicators
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 3, 4.
Intelligent Prevention of DVT
