St. Catharines, Canada, December 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Lymphedema Depot Ltd., the exclusive Canadian distributor of Solaris lymphedema-care garments, announced today that the mildly compressive Outer Jacket that has long been available only with the Solaris custom made Tribute™ nighttime garment is now available for the Caresia Bandage Liners™ for arms.
According to the company, Caresia Bandage Liners are standard sized arm and leg sleeves filled with medical grade foam chips sewn into channels that are shaped to guide lymphatic fluid out of an area of chronic swelling. The Bandage liners fit against the limb and are meant to have short stretch bandaging applied over them to achieve therapeutic compression for the patient. This helps reduce and control swelling.
Now, with the availability of the Caresia Outer Jacket it is possible that the application of short-stretch bandaging may, in some cases, be eliminated and the Caresia Bandage Liner along with a simple Caresia Outer Jacket, may be sufficient to reduce and control lymphedema.
According to Lymphedema Depot‘s Clinical Specialist John Mulligan, “The availability of the Outer Jacket to use with the Caresia Bandage Liner will be a great relief to many lymphedema patients. I would recommend this management tool to be used where lymphedema is mild and one of the standard sizes of Caresia is a good fit for the patient. In those cases, patients may be relieved of the burden of self-bandaging and find this new application to be a simple and effective alternative.”
Mulligan goes on to say “This means that the Caresia Bandage Liner can easily be used as a nighttime lymphedema garment to wear while sleeping, if the user fits comfortably and effectively into the standard sizes. This is a real breakthrough in living with lymphedema.”
The Caresia Bandage Liner and Outer Jacket are available in Canada exclusively from Lymphedema Depot Ltd.
