The goal of Compression Solutions is to

Prevent DVT at Home

CRITICAL POST-SURGERY RECOVERY

Compression Solutions is on the forefront of helping to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) where patients are most vulnerable — at home after surgery.

Our products and programs increase patient safety, improve outcomes, and reduce costs, . And because our focus is on preventing DVT risk at home, we make our compression products accessible, compact, and exceedingly simple to use.

Transitioning home after surgery should be a time of recovery, not risk. Learn more about how Triple Play VT® can make a difference. Together, we can change outcomes — and save lives.
