Professional Fittings for Medical Compression Garments
What is Professional Fittings for Medical Compression Garments?
Although there is no cure, lymphedema can be managed, and wearing compression garments is one of the most important aspects of the management plan. Compression garments are designed to keep a continuous pressure on the swollen/affected area to assist the drainage of fluid and minimize swelling.
External compression provides a counter force to the working musculature, known as working pressure. Working pressure helps to prevent re-accumulation of fluids that were evacuated during intensive complete decongestive therapy (CDT) and conserves the results achieved during manual lymphatic drainage (MLD).
