St. Catharines, Canada, March 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The discounts were announced to the professional lymphedema-care community. The information is also available to the public on the Lymphedema Depot website at http://www.LymphedemaDepot.com.
“Our company was formed out of a sincere desire to help advance lymphedema care in Canada by introducing new, quality products and by providing expert, professional but personal service to match,” said company vice-president and clinical specialist John Mulligan. “We feel that offering discounts is a way we can help introduce these life-changing products to a broader client base.”
Solaris products include the Solaris Tribute, a soft, quilted compression garment that is meant to be worn overnight, providing a comfortable and effective treatment to the lymphedema patient while they sleep.
“We feel that the Solaris Tribute is a breakthrough product that directly improves the quality of life of the lymphedema patient,” says Mulligan.
Lymphedema is a condition of chronic swelling of a limb or body part. It can be caused by damage to the lymphatic system such as the removal of lymph nodes in diagnostic procedures for cancer patients, among other causes.
Lymphedema patients are required to wear a compression garment on their affected limb during the day. The standard treatment protocol also recommends wearing multilayer compression bandaging at night while the patient is sleeping.
“Mastering the technique for self-application of multi-layer compression bandaging before going to bed each night is difficult, tedious and possibly counter-productive. It is very difficult to do it correctly and safely. The Solaris Tribute is a wonderful alternative to nighttime bandaging because it is custom made for each patient and it slips on and off easily and quickly. It is very simple and strikingly effective in helping to manage your lymphedema successfully while you sleep,” according to Mulligan.
Other Solaris lymphedema care products include the Caresia bandage liner, Swell Spot edema and fibrosis reduction pads, and ReadyWrap inelastic medical binders for the legs. More information is available at http://www.LymphedemaDepot.com.
