The Smart Compression™ Difference in SCD

It’s compression that moves more blood1* to help prevent stasis1. That tracks compliance2 with Patient Sensing™ technology. That educates patients and clinicians about the risk of VTE all while keeping the environment in mind.

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
