DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS (DVT)
DVT is a blood clot, typically in a vein in the lower leg, that can cause severe breathing problems or death if it travels to your lungs.
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 DVT where patients are most vulnerable — at home after surgery.
Our products and programs increase patient safety and reduce costs. And because our focus is on preventing DVT after surgery 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.
