YES! LympheDames has registered LympheDivas with SAHPRA as well as MediKredit and has recieved all the required coding for medical aid coverage. However, lymphoedema conditions are not well recognized, so it is best to call your medical aid provider and ask them whether they cover medical, graduated compression garments for the treatment and/or management of lymphoedema.

Product Questions

How do I care for my garments?

Caring for your garment as instructed below is essential to getting the full 4-6 months of wear. Regular washing prolongs the useful life of the garment and maintains the ideal compression characteristics. Washing & Drying To wash your garment, please place the arm sleeve, gauntlet or glove in a lingerie/delicates bag and machine wash the garment on delicates setting in cold water using a gentle fabric detergent. Keep the garment in the delicates bag, tumble dry low until fully dry. Do Not: - Wash in hot water - Dry on high heat setting -Dry on any setting for an excessively long duration -Wring the garments dry -Hand wash -Dry clean -Use any chemical solvent or bleach, fabric softener or any other laundry additive -Use creams, oils, and lotions immediately prior to donning the garment Doing any of the above can compromise the delicate nature of the fibers that make up your garment, can more rapidly deteriorate compression and lower the useful lifespan of the garment. For best results, we recommend rotating between 2 or more garments and washing the garments frequently in between use.

How do I put on and take off my garment

HOW TO PUT ON AND TAKE OFF A SLEEVE: Turn down the top of the sleeve so it’s folded over itself.Pull the sleeve over your hand until the end of the sleeve is at the pictured position on the wrist.Gently pull the rest of the sleeve evenly up over the arm to the armpit. Make sure the sleeve is equally spread over the whole arm and that there are no constrictions or wrinkles.To remove sleeve, hold the top of the cuff and pull down until it slips off your hand. HOW TO PUT ON AND TAKE OFF A GLOVE: Put the glove on your hand and adjust the fingers by gently pulling each glove finger opening down to your nail bed, leaving the tips of your fingers exposed. Smooth out any extra fabric over the length of your fingers. As you begin to use your hands, the finger fabric will naturally fall into place and distribute evenly over your fingers. To remove the glove, lightly tug up each glove finger to loosen, then gently slide the non-gloved hand into the glove opening at the wrist to push the glove up and off the hand. This method will allow you to remove the glove without turning it inside out.

What compression classes do you offer?

We offer compression in 20-30 mmHg and 30-40 mmHg in arm sleeves, gauntlets, and gloves. Compression class names vary regionally, in South Africa 20-30 mmHg is Class 2 and 30-40 mmHg is Class 3.

What sleeve length options do you offer?

Our sleeves come in a Short and a Long length. Please don’t be put off by the length names, we don’t have a “Regular” length anymore because we don’t believe that there is a standard arm length, just like there isn’t a standard arm size, by only offering a Short or Long option we hope it will inspire our customers to measure their arm and get the sleeve that will fit them the best. To determine length, measure your arm length from wrist to the top of the bicep; the Short sleeve length accommodates arms 37-44cm and the Long sleeve length accommodates arms 43-56cm. The length formally known at Regular is now called Long.

What Size do I need?

Please visit our Size + Fit page to see detailed instructions on how to measure and fit for our garments.

What Compression Class do I need?

It is best to consult your doctor or lymphedema therapist about which level of compression is best to manage your swelling. A doctor or therapist will assess your arm for swelling and develop a plan with you to manage and/or reduce your lymphedema. Each plan is individually tailored for each patient, self-management lymphedema care often includes wrapping, manual lymph drainage massage and wearing a properly fitted compression garment. Class 1 (20-30 mmHg) is generally for preventative wear for those at risk for swelling and for minor swelling and Class 2 (30-40 mmHg) is for more severe edema.
