Flowtron® ACS900 Active Compression Pump delivers both uniform and sequential compression for treating Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). The Flowtron ACS900 DVT Compression Pump is simple and easy to use for enhancing the circulation of blood in the deep veins of the legs, reducing venous stasis and helping to prevent the formation of DVT. Both Uniform and Sequential compression are proven to help prevent VTE1 when used as part of a prescribed care pathway. Flowtron garments are non thermal sleeves with excellent moisture management properties. A combination of garments can be used simultaneously, including combinations of foot, calf and thigh. The patented SmartSense™ auto garment recognition technology incorporated in the Flowtron ACS900 will automatically detect the attached garments and supply the correct pressure.
Flowtron ACS900 Continuous & Sequential DVT Compression Pump provides comfort, convenience and choice into one complete compression therapy system. A unique cable management system aids tubeset and power cord management in the clinical area and during transportation and storage. An integrated battery provides uninterrupted compression therapy and the Patient Run Hours meter records how long the compression has been delivered.
