Clinical Studies

FlowMedic’s homefit is a miniaturized, portable compression device that applies intermittent pressure on the calf muscle and significantly enhances blood flow throughout the entire leg.
Through several clinical trials, it has been shown that the homefit can significantly enhance venous blood flow, better than most available compression devices- stationary and portable.

Comparative Hemodynamic Study of Mechanical Compression Devices for Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis.
The study showed that the homefit is as good in increasing venous flow* as the leading intermittent pneumatic compression device in the US.

* Increase in peak venous flow is an acceptable measure of efficacy in studies related to DVT prevention.

A novel intermittent mechanical compression device for stasis prevention in the lower limbs during limited mobility situations.
The study found that peak flow velocity values were significantly higher in legs treated with the device and concluded that the device may provide the same hemodynamic benefits as large conventional IPC devices.

Mechanical Prophylaxis For Travellers’ Thrombosis: A Comparison Of Three Interventions That Promote Venous Outflow.
This pilot study compared the homefit to graduated compression stockings and periodic exercise and found that the homefit leads to the largest peak flow velocity (measured in the popliteal vein). Increase in venous flow is an acceptable measure of efficacy in studies related to DVT prevention.

homefit vs. Other Portable Compression Devices

In a comparative hemodynamic study, the homefit showed a significantly higher increase in peak flow velocity when compared to other commercially available portable compression devices*.
