Up to 644,000 patients who have undergone a hip or knee replacement will develop a blood clot (DVT) and 71,500 will die due to complication of DVT, a pulmonary embolism (PE). Of these, 17,900 will exhibit no symptoms of PE prior to death. Quick detection of the DVT is important to prevent the death of the patient.

We monitor patients who had surgery for DVT by embedding sensors into a compression sock and provide this data to surgeons and patients to prevent PE. Surgeons currently prescribe compression socks to patients after the surgery to help prevent DVT.
