Flowtron® VTE prevention garments have been shown to be non-thermal in nature with excellent moisture management properties; key factors which contribute to patient comfort and subsequent patient compliance.
Comfortable VTE prevention garments are important in improving the patients' experience and therefore concordance with therapy.
One method of improving patient comfort is to focus on the garments ability to allow the passage of heat,air or moisture vapour away from the skin through the fabric.
Key success metrics for garments that are comfortable for the patients to wear are:
Ensuring garment fabric is of a low thermal rating
Using garment fabric that allows heat and moisture vapour through
Ensuring fabric dries rapidly
Independent laboratory tests1 have shown that the Flowtron range of uniform and sequential garments are effective at transferring water vapour away from the patients skin, have the ability to dry quickly and recorded a low thermal rating, therefore enhancing patient comfort; increasing patient compliance.
