Compression garments and sleeves are designed to apply pressure to the arm, hand, or trunk to keep lymph moving in the right direction. These are an effective part of overall treatment for lymphedema. At Bea’s Mastectomy Boutique, we can provide the compression garments you need in Kingston to treat your lymphedema.
Examples of compression garments include:
Sleeve worn on the arm
Fingerless glove or gauntlet
Support bra for the chest area
Vest for the entire trunk area
All the garments are made from flexible fabric. The sleeves are tighter at the bottom than at the top, creating a graded pressure that keeps lymph moving out of the arm. They can also come in a variety of different materials that can feel softer or stiffer, such as wool or latex.
We provide medical compression garments & pneumatic pumps. Get medical compression from Medi and Juzo for all parts of the body for general support or to help treat many lymphatic, arthritic conditions and venous insufficiencies. Pneumatic compression pumps are also available to assist in the treatment of lymphedema & venous insufficiencies from Lymphapress USA, Arjo-Huntleigh and Biocompresssion.
We recommend getting a proper fitting for your garment. An improperly-fitted one can make things worse.
