The inelastic compression alternative
medi offers the most comprehensive line of compression garments for all individual needs – this includes circaid, a full line of inelastic alternative compression garments – the alternative to short stretch and multi-layer bandage systems.
circaid provides measurable and instantly adjustable inelastic compression for venous and lymphatic disorders during day and night use. circaid garments promote self-management and thus an increased patient compliance as well as an improved quality of life.
What makes circaid different
Most are unaware that giraffes have venous pressures of more than 250 mmHg at their ankles - three times more than humans. Why is that important?
Inspired by nature, circaid has incorporated this concept into its inelastic products, designing the "perfect alternative" to traditional compression therapy. The first patented circaid legging (short for circulation aid) was inspired by a giraffe’s inelastic skin – this core technology would evolve into all future circaid products.
circaid products enable patient engagement earlier in the treatment of venous diseases and improve compliance with compression therapy. circaid products empower patients now and provide:
- Cost effective alternatives to traditional bandaging
- Safer and simpler treatment compared to bandaging
- Self-management technologies to improve patient compliance
circaid®'s built-in pressure system™ (BPS) - patented technology
graduated compression profile from the ankle up the leg or from the wrist to the upper arm.
The user-friendly design of the built-in pressure system™ (BPS™) guide card enables patients to achieve the necessary compression ranges for the treatment and management of chronic venous disease and lymphedema.
With the BPS™ guide card, patients are able to set their prescribed compression range while donning their garment and readjust during the day as needed. Therefore, the appropriate compression range is ensured throughout the period of wear.
circaid has a comprehensive product line with many inelastic, adjustable products for venous, lymphatic and wound care applications, featuring both ready-to-wear and custom fit options. No matter the condition, circaid has a solution for every patient.
medi Lymphedema Therapy Concept
The medi lymphedema therapy concept is a new approach in the treatment of lymphedema. It combines the decongestion phase and the transition phase with the maintenance phase and provides the right products for every stage of treatment.
This simplifies and accelerates the entire patient management process.
