What is DVT prevention device–Air Compression Therapy?
Air Compression Therapy is the DVT prevention device on the market. It is a wearable device that compresses the leg veins to reduce blood flow and prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Air compression therapy effectively prevents DVT in people at risk for developing DVT (e.g., those with obesity, prior blood clots, or those who travel frequently) and those who have already developed DVT.
How does DVT prevetion deveice work?
The GZ Air Compression Therapy device is a long-term DVT prevention device designed to help prevent the development of blood clots. The therapy helps reduce leg swelling and pressure, which can lead to the development of DVT.
In general, when you have a clot in your leg, the movement of the blood causes it to break down and form a thrombus. This is what leads to DVT. The problem with using compression therapy to prevent DVT is that it can be difficult to do it effectively and consistently.
One type of DVT prevention device that uses air compression is GZ Longest Air Compression Therapy. This device uses an air pump to compress the veins in your legs and force blood out of them. Doing this helps reduce the chances of a clot forming in your vein and leading to DVT.
