Compression Science and Lymphoedema Treatment Advances

Graduated Compression for Lymphedema
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to fit each individual’s needs. If you’re new to compression or a compression pro, it is important to know that you have options. Now that you know what to look for and ask for in a compression garment, you can work with your therapist to find your perfect garment.
What You Didn’t Know About Compression Garments
How do graduated compression garments really work? There isn’t a one-size fits all solution to fit each individual’s compression, compliance and cost needs. Once compression levels of garment are determined to perform for a patient clinically, then therapists should approach their decision by considering which garment is the patient will actually wear and is cost-effective. Compression, compliance and cost should be the main determining factors in finding the right garment for each patient’s individual needs. 
Use of Hand Compression and Compression Sleeves in Lymphedema Management and Prevention
Controversy persists regarding the benefits of compression garments in preventing lymphedema. A key stumbling block is the possibility of triggering hand lymphedema when wearing a sleeve without a glove or gauntlet. Compression applied to the arm may reduce lymph flow from the hand.
Ready-Made Versus Custom Compression Sleeves
Once compression levels are determined, patients and therapists should approach their decision by deciding what garment is the least expensive that the patient will actually wear. Compression, Compliance, and Cost should be the main determining factors and not brand or manufacturing type.
