Key benefits of Sit-walker
Blood stagnation in legs is a leading cause of deep vein thrombosis(OVT) episodes.
Stagnating blood tends to clot – most probable sites are the legs. These clots can move along with the flowing blood and reach the heart.
When they are pumped out from the heart, they can get stuck in smaller vessels and cause thrombotic attacs.
Often, fatal results are seen due to clots lodged in critical sites like.
1.Lungs-causing Pulmonary Embolsm (PE) or
2.Coronary-vessels causing cardiac arrest or
3.Brain – Causing brain stroke
