What is Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs when a thick mass of blood forms in a vein located deep inside your body. Deep vein blood clots typically form in your thigh or lower leg and are likely to travel upwards towards the heart.
While moving upwards, they encounter no resistance as the vein diameter goes on increasing and when a clot is pumped out of the heart it can get stuck in the lungs or in the cardiac arteries causing heart attacks or the brain causing a stroke. In all three cases it can be fatal

Doctors Advice for patients
Keeping your blood pressure under control, giving up smoking, and losing weight if you’re overweight.
Moving your legs around when you’ve been sitting for a while also helps keep your blood flowing. Walking around after being on bed rest can prevent clots from forming.
Take any blood thinners your doctor prescribes if you’re having surgery, as this can lower your chance of developing clots afterward.
The risk of developing DVT during travel becomes higher if you’re sitting for more than four hours.
Stretch your legs and feet while you’re sitting,this keeps your blood moving steadily in your calves.
Don’t wear tight clothes that can restrict blood flow.
Before and After using Sitwalker.
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
