ADDISON, Ill., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --ArjoHuntleigh is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a three year national contract with Amerinet Choice LLC, the Preferred Portfolio subsidiary of Amerinet, one of the nation's largest group purchasing organizations, as a preferred supplier of vascular compression devices utilized for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prevention. The agreement, effective January 1, 2012, allows Amerinet members to take advantage of pre-negotiated special pricing and terms for the ArjoHuntleigh Flowtron® intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) devices to reduce the incidence of thrombus formation in patients at risk.

"ArjoHuntleigh is very excited to continue our partnership with Amerinet Choice®, the Preferred Portfolio subsidiary of Amerinet, and their members. By continuing their partnership with ArjoHuntleigh, members will have access to a Choice portfolio that improves patient outcomes using the most innovative technology, yet provides the best overall value," stated Dan Raffensberger, ArjoHuntleigh US Director of Sales.

Deep vein thrombosis affects approximately two million Americans each year. Blood clots may travel to the lungs, block circulation and cause a pulmonary embolism (PE), the most common preventable cause of inpatient death. Many of these deaths are highly preventable through the use of clinically-proven thromboprophylaxis methods, such as the ArjoHuntleigh Flowtron intermittent pneumatic compression systems, which reduce the incidence of DVT formation in patients at risk and drive efficiency, patient safety, and quality care in a cost-effective manner.
