Flowtron Tri Pulse – designed for enhanced patient comfort during VTE prevention therapy

The new Flowtron® Tri Pulse™ VTE prevention sequential garment from ArjoHuntleigh provides excellent comfort for patients during Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC).

Venous Thromboembolism (VTE), which encompasses Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE), is one of the most important, potentially preventable, causes of death and morbidity especially of hospitalized patients1. ArjoHuntleigh's portfolio of vascular prevention and therapy includes a comprehensive range of Active Compression Systems; reliable, clinically proven pumps and dedicated garments to facilitate safe and effective VTE prevention.  

The Tri Pulse sequential garments are designed with patient comfort in mind. The soft, cushioned, breathable 3D Airflow Light fabric helps to prevent build-up of heat and moisture2, keeping patients’ skin cool, dry and comfortable during VTE prevention. The curved design of the garment with unique wing-shaped bladder envelops the calf, following the natural curve of the leg for a more comfortable and improved fit to aid patient compliance.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is highly preventable
The consistent use of IPC has been clinically proven as a safe and effective method of reducing venous stasis in hospitalized patients with reduced mobility3. IPC is a simple and comfortable solution for medical and surgical patients. Its inflation-deflation cycle enhances what the body does naturally—mimicking the ambulatory calf and foot pumps to move the blood in the deep veins of the leg and thereby reducing the risk of VTE.
