Managing Lymphedema with Custom Compression Garments

Gottfried Medical Custom Compression Garments for Managing LymphedemaCustom compression garments engineered for lymphedema assist weak or damaged capillaries and vessels of the lymphatic system with the flow of lymph. Also, they help reduce and control swollen and bulging extremities often associated with this condition. These garments are engineered to exert gradient pressure, mimicking the action of the veins as they move lymph toward the heart. Gradient pressure is highest at the distal end reducing in gradient to the proximal end.

Conditions Treated with Custom Compression Garments

  • Edema
  • Intractable Edema
  • Post-fracture Edema
