Flowtron Excel DVT Pump is a lightweight compression pump for Deep Vein Thromboisis (DVT) therapy. This compression pump is specially designed to serve as a bedside DVT pump. The Flowtron Excel DVT Pump aids in the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) through a compression system that consists of a DVT pump and DVT sleeves. Manufactured by Huntleigh, the Flowtron Excel Pump provides calf, thigh or foot compression for DVT therapy which increases blood velocity in the deep veins, reducing stasis and stimulating fibrinolysis to prevent and break down clots.
Flowtron Excel Compression Pumps attach to special DVT Garment Sleeves that are ordered separately to match the need and size of the patient. There are calf garments, thigh garments, and foot garments to select from. Longer length compression tubing and replacement battery packs, battery chargers can also be purchased at Flowtron DVT Accessories.
