How can compression garments be used for lymphedema decongestion?
circaid® reduction kit™: THE complete alternative to bandaging
The innovative, inelastic bandaging system, the circaid reduction kit, will grant patients a previously unattainable level of independence for the initial treatment of lymphedema. The reduction kit engages the patient in their therapy from day one. With its unique component approach, patient’s can build the solution they need to meet their individual requirement. These components can be used in isolation or in combinations to meet each specific need. This freedom and flexibility allow patient empowerment to continue their therapy away from the clinic, improving overall outcomes. Progress can be tracked with each visit and as decongestion occurs, the components can be adjusted for optimal continued use and maintenance.
What are the available circaid reduction kit components?
There are multiple solutions within the reduction kit family, from arm and leg, to hand and foot and even pieces to fit extreme sizes. Accessories for added containment or enhanced mobility also make up the vast collection in the reduction kit family.
