How it Works
ActiveCare® Therapy for DVT Prevention
ActiveCare® is a safe and effective way to reduce the risk of blood clot formation and prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) by reducing blood clot formation without the use of medications that are associated with an increased risk of bleeding during and after major orthopedic surgery.
How Does ActiveCare® Work?
ActiveCare® works by gently applying compression to your legs, increasing the postop speed of blood flow in the veins according to the normal respiration and reducing the risk of clot formation. Its portable size, lightweight mobility and ease of use, provide continuous 24-hour protection for the most safe and effective way to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis during and after major orthopedic surgeries (such as total hip replacement, total knee replacement, total ankle replacement and total hip fracture).

ActiveCare® allows you to be fully mobile
ActiveCare® is lightweight, portable and comfortable to wear. It is powered by a rechargeable battery so that you can disconnect the device from the mains supply for up to 6 hours, allowing you to quietly and comfortably move while wearing the device for extended periods of time. You can take the device with you wherever you go: walk around, sit outside, and even travel. In fact, you will be free to do most normal activities without restriction.
For maximum prevention of DVT, ActiveCare® should be used at least 20 hours per day throughout your prescribed treatment period. You should also carefully follow your health care provider’s instructions.
