Evaluation: ArjoHuntleigh Flowtron ACS900 Intermittent Pneumatic Compression System for DVT Prevention
August 2, 2017 | Evaluations & Guidance
The Flowtron ACS900 Active Compression System with Flowtron garments is a very good choice for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prevention applications: It performs as expected on both line power and battery power, offers several safety features, and provides flexibility in terms of purchasing options and garment selection. When used with its foot garments, the ACS900 can also be used for reducing edema (acute and chronic), healing leg ulcers, preventing venous stasis, managing pain due to trauma, and enhancing circulation.
The primary purpose of the Flowtron ACS900 system is to help prevent the development of DVT by promoting the circulation of blood in the legs.
The Flowtron ACS900 system is not indicated for any supplementary uses when used with its leg garments. However, when used with foot garments, the system is also indicated for reducing edema (acute and chronic), healing leg ulcers, preventing venous stasis, managing pain due to trauma, and enhancing circulation.
