March is DVT Awareness Month: What Happened to Heavy D, David Bloom, Serena Williams and, Cathleen Renner Can Happen to You. Sitacise Can Prevent DVT.
According to the Coalition to Prevent DVT, over 2 million Americans get DVT or deep vein thrombosis, which are blood clots usually in the deep veins of the thighs or calves every year like Heavy D, David Bloom, Serena & Cathleen. And just like Heavy D, David & Cathleen 300,000 of them die from this very preventable disease. During DVT Awareness Month, Sitacise is on a mission to educate students, teachers, call center workers, truck drivers, bus drivers and others that idly sit.
Serena was lucky and hers was caught in time, but Heavy D, David Bloom and Cathleen were not as fortunate and they were killed by DVT. Cathleen was working at her desk when the fatal clot formed according to her doctors. But how did the clot form and what can we do to prevent them from forming?
Unlike arteries, which rely on the heart to force blood through them, the veins transport blood with the help of muscle contractions while we move and walk. Veins also have valves that keep blood from flowing backward and pooling in your arms and legs.
When we are inactive for an extended period our venous circulation slow down, as a result clotting factors in the blood cause the slow moving blood to clump together forming a blood clot or thrombus. This is how Cathleen got DVT from idle sitting.
Sitacise has developed a series of movements and exercises that can be done while we’re sitting that will contract the muscles to help transport the blood through our veins. This will prevent idle sitting that causes DVT and PE.
Sitacise has also been found to help reduce the other risks associated with idle sitting such as diabetes, obesity, cancers, heart disease and some back and leg problems.
