The Smart Compression™ Difference in SCD
It is a Smart Compression™ system that moves more blood1*
to help prevent stasis1, tracks compliance2 with its Patient Sensing™ technology, and offers a digital platform that
educates patients and clinicians about the risk of VTE
all while keeping the environment in mind.
Patient Sensing™ Technology
Vascular Refill Detection
For OBGYNs who are looking to protect women from venous thromboembolism (VTE) before, during and after a C-section.13
The Kendall SCD 700™ System is the only Smart CompressionTM technology available. Unlike the competition, our technology combines personalized compression, circumferential and sequential therapy, patient sensing™ technology, and soft and breathable sleeves.

Kendall SCD™ 700 Series Controller
The Kendall SCD™ 700 Controller Smart CompressionTM is the next evolution of IPC. It applies intermittent pneumatic compression to increase venous blood flow11 — helping prevent deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in at-risk patients.
Kendall SCD™ Comfort Sleeves
The Kendall SCD™ Comfort Sleeves have been designed to provide an increased level of comfort, and to increase patient compliance with mechanical prophylaxis™.12
