With nearly 60% of all cases occurring within 90 days of hospitalization, Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) is one of the leading causes of avoidable hospital death, even though, 7 out of 10 cases can be prevented1. Join us in the fight against Hospital-Acquired VTE — together we can keep patients safe and reduce HA-VTE.

SMART COMPRESSION™ System
The SMART COMPRESSION™ System includes the Kendall SCD™ 700 Series Controller, Kendall SCD™ Comfort and Express Sleeves, and Kendall SCD™ Foot Cuffs. They apply intermittent pneumatic compression to increase venous blood flow, helping prevent deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in at-risk patients.
T.E.D.™ Anti-Embolism Stockings
T.E.D.™ Anti-Embolism Stockings are clinically proven to reduce the incidence of DVT up to 50%1 and to promote increased blood flow velocity in the legs 138%2 of baseline by compression of the deep venous system.

The A-V Impulse™ Foot Compression System
The A-V Impulse™ Foot Compression System mimics the hemodynamic effect of ambulation by flattening the plantar plexus and completely evacuating blood from the bottom of the foot.
