Details

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.

It got my mom her legs back!
My mom, who has been in her bed for month, has got a problem with her legs. Blood circulation got worse and worse and it gave her a great deal of pain. Her doc advised me to get this and it has helped her to the great extent. It's not so cheap but I can say it's definitely worth it.

Flowtron Excel DVT Pump review
Since I've been diagnosed with vein thrombosis, I have been in this kind of therapy. At first, I just go to a hospital to use their system. But then my husband said that I need to have one at home so that he may also be able to use it for him to avoid having thrombosis as well. So glad we made the purchase because not only it is easy to use, it also eases the pain that I'm feeling in my thighs.

The Blood Flows with DVT Pump Review
Since I became stuck to my bed for a long period of time my legs started hurting. When the doctor said that the blood was not flowing he recommended this and my legs stopped hurting. It is even better now when I get out of bed. I can walk without the pain in my legs and the swelling went down.
