HeelSafe DVT Hose

DM Systems has added HeelSafe DVT Hose to its line of ulcer prevention products. The latex-free hose have a window design that relieves heel and Achilles tendon pressure and allows for easy visualization and palpation of the heel. Ankle-to-knee compression ratings for knee-high hose are 20-12 mm Hg and ankle-to-thigh ratings for thigh-high hose are 20-9 mm Hg. The DVT hose are indicated for patients at risk for venous pooling and thrombosis and those with deep venous thrombosis, a history of heel pressure ulcers, or limited mobility, or those who sit or stand for long periods of time.
