circaid®: Inspired by nature
The idea and development of circaid products is founded upon the giraffe. The founder, Frank Shaw, created the first inelastic compression device based upon the anatomy of the giraffe leg. In contrast to humans, the skin of giraffes does not expand on the legs. Due to the high density of inelastic collagen fibers and the relatively thick top layer of skin, the tissue pressure of giraffes is increased, promoting lymphatic and venous return flow. Giraffes thus carry permanent natural compression.
The circaid profile is a foam sleeve garment designed for patient use at night or for those with sensitivity issues. Made from first-use foam and brrr°cooling fabric, the circaid profile allow patients comfortable lymphedema management from home. The circaid profile has a full assortment of colors and sizes in both ready-to-wear and custom options for upper extremity solution.
