What is the circaid® reduction kit™: Patient Independence for long-term success

The inelastic compression system, the circaid reduction kit, grants patients a previously unattainable level of independence during treatment of late-stage lymphedema. The reduction kit engages the patient in their therapy from day one. With its unique component approach, therapists can build the solution they need to meet their patients’ individual requirements. These components can be used in isolation or in combinations per the patient’s requirement. This freedom and flexibility allow patient empowerment as they can 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 compression garments are used for the treatment of lymphedema?

An assortment of compression products may be used by a Certified Lymphedema Therapist or CLT based on the individual treatment plan and past experiences. These compression product groups include:

  • Compression garments
  • Adjustable compression wraps
  • Pneumatic compression device or compression pumps

Each product group has its strengths and weaknesses that many times are united to achieve the best patient outcomes.  When assessing product selection, therapists need to consider the following:

  • Stage of lymphedema and product containment level
  • Shape of limb – lobes and folds can create unique challenges
  • Patient ability
  • Length of treatment time
  • Long term success -life after treatment

There is such an ease of its use and making the necessary adjustments, that it doesn’t make sense to use anything else.
I utilize the Circaid Reduction kits frequently in my clinic, so when I was presented with an unusual request to treat a horse that was scheduled to be euthanized, I thought “what could it hurt”!
