Evaluation: Medtronic Kendall SCD 700 Intermittent Pneumatic Compression System for DVT Prevention
August 2, 2017 | Evaluations & Guidance
The Kendall SCD 700 series controller with Kendall SCD 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 many safety features, and is flexible in terms of purchasing options, garment selection, and transportation. When used with its foot garments, the SCD 700 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 Kendall SCD 700 system is to help prevent the development of DVT by promoting the circulation of blood in the legs.
The Kendall SCD 700 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.
