About Fitwell Medical
Fitwell Medical Inc would like to work with you to create awareness and have a healthier work enviroment for you and your employees.
Fitwell MedicalFitwell Medical Inc is a small privately owned company dedicated to improving employee health in the workplace. Our main objective is to educate employee’s whom jobs require them to sit or stand for long periods of time. Sitting for long periods of time slows blood circulation, which causes fluid to pool in the legs and feet. Problems range from swollen feet and ankles, spider veins, varicose veins and dangerous blood clots called Deep Vein Thrombosis commonly known as (DVT).

There are a number of different remedies that aid in good circulation. One of the most popular and effective remedies to promote circulation is through compression therapy, most commonly known as compression socks, performance socks and sleeves.

At your convenience, Fitwell Medical Inc and Paige Wahl from Sigvaris will come to your location and host a “Healthy Leg Day”.This gives your employee’s the opportunity to obtain proper information and education to maintaining healthy legs while in the workplace and also provides them the option to be fitted with compression socks.

Most insurance plans cover compression socks. Employee’s may also have Extended Benefits, Health Spending Account or may have additional coverage through a spouse. We encourage that employees look into benefit coverage prior to “Healthy Leg Day” Fitwell Medical Inc would like to work with you to create awareness and have a healthier work environment for you and your employees.
