How the Venowave Can Help
The Venowave VW5 is a medical device that has been statistically proven to prevent a DVT from occurring, in at risk patients. Traditionally, compression stockings and anti-coagulants (blood thinners) have been the gold standard in DVT prevention until today. The Venowave VW5 can be used alone or in conjunction with blood thinners and/or compression stockings.
The Venowave VW5 is applied to the back of the calf and mimics the body's venous system preventing blood from remaining still and clotting. The Venowave VW5 is unique because it is lightweight (250g, less then ½ pound), discreet and allows patients to remain completely mobile. There are no wires, tubes or sleeves. The Venowave VW5 can be used in hospital or during homecare after discharge from the hospital.
The Venowave is Useful For
- Prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and venous thromboembolism (VTE)
- Prevention of primary thrombosis
- Diminishing post-operative pain and swelling
- Enhancing circulation
