Lymphedema

What is lymphedema?

Lymphedema is a highly under-diagnosed condition that affects the lymphatic vessels, which are responsible for transporting protein-rich lymph fluid back into the circulatory system. When lymph vessels are unable to transport this fluid properly, a build-up occurs, resulting in swelling and the thickening of the skin.

Who is at risk?

If you have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, radiation treatment, lymph node removal, surgeries, infections, or trauma to the limbs, you may be at risk for developing lymphedema.

How can I tell if I have lymphedema?

A common indicator of lymphedema is indentations that do not immediately disappear after the skin has been depressed by the hand or fingers. This condition is usually found in the legs and arms; however, lymphedema can affect any region of the body. Many people with lymphedema are labeled over-weight, yet lymphedema is not about fat storage.

Using Compression Therapy

Although there is no cure, lymphedema can be managed. Wearing compression garments is one of the most important aspects of managing lymphedema. Compression garments are designed to keep a continuous pressure on the swollen/affected area to assist the drainage of fluid and minimize swelling.  

If you’re concerned that you may have lymphedema, consult a trained MLD therapist or your primary care provider for a proper evaluation. 

Supports movement to encourage physical activity - a key factor to living healthy and minimizing chronic disease.
Juzo compression garments are not made with natural rubber latex, making them ideal for people who suffer from latex allergies.
Juzo's exclusive FiberSoft® manufacturing process involves micro-spinning every compression fiber with soft, protective threads to provide a comfortable, breathable, durable garment.
X-STATIC® harnesses the power of silver to create a powerful technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria on fabrics, eliminating human-based odor for the life of the garment. X-STATIC® is made by permanently bonding 99.9% metallic silver to the surface of a fiber.
Juzo's compression garment moves with you using fiber that stretches and recovers in both directions, crosswise and lengthwise.
Compression starts at distal end and gradually decreases as it moves up the limb. Graduated compression supports the management of Lymphedema or Venous Disease.
Easy to slip on and off. Machine wash and dry.
Casual and dress styles for men and women. Multiple print or color options, including seasonals. Great for work, home or play.
The major difference between a higher quality compression garment and a garment of lesser quality is the presence of an inlay thread, which provides a high level of compression consistency.
