Sigvaris provides docs with education tool

Thursday, February 6, 2014

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. – Sigvaris has released an iPad app that helps doctors visually explain the circulatory system and potential problems, such as blood clots, spider and varicose veins, swelling and ulcers. Already in use at vascular clinics and medical offices, the app also shows how compression stockings help to improve circulation. “When you can show patients how a blood clot forms or the exact veins that have been affected by venous insufficiency, it gives them a much clearer understanding about what is happening within their body,” said physician Ariel Soffer in a release. The free app is available in English, Portuguese, German and French.
