ONE OF OUR FAVORITES
Today, I’d like to share one of The Compression Closets’ favorite garments and best sellers. The Sigvaris CompreFlex Calf garment has been one of our top sellers and favorites for years. It is simple and easy to use and is one of our most cost-effective garments. What’s not to like? I especially like this garment for my elderly customers who might not have a lot of strength to pull on a traditional compression sock.
COMPRESSION WRAPS FOR LYMPHEDEMA
Compression wrap garments work incredibly well for lymphedema patients, as there are often fluctuations in the leg size that the velcro wrap can accommodate. Furthermore, you can use CompreFlex Compression wrap garments for daytime and nighttime compression garments, unlike typical gradient compression stockings, which you would only wear during the day.
A study of Adjustable Compression Wrap (ACW) garments found that compression wraps for lymphedema were equal to custom-made flat-knit garments. Furthermore, compression wrap garments proved more advantageous in the maintenance phase of complex decongestive therapy (CDT) for lymphedema. The compression wraps prove easier to don and doff. They also showed a continuation of reduction in the limb, whereas the flat knit stocking did not. Another advantage is the Sigvaris CompreFlex Wraps can be significantly less expensive than a flat knit garment. Finally, even if you prefer compression stockings, it’s nice to have a wrap garment on hand if you have a flare-up and want some reduction.
SIGVARIS COMPREFLEX CALF
Sigvaris makes compression easy! This compression wrap is one of the most effortless garments to don and doff. The CompreFlex has an inner elastic sleeve to hold the wrap in place so that it does not slip while you adjust the Velcro straps. In addition, the anatomical design of the garment prevents gaps from forming between each strap, creating more comfortable and effective compression.
High working pressure in this wrap garment helps move fluid out of the affected limb. Therefore, use this garment for either the decongestion or maintenance phase of your lymphedema treatment. The CompreFlex is also an excellent compression garment for those suffering from poor circulation or for wound care.
BENEFITS OF COMPREFLEX
The Sigvarais CompreFlex Calf is a low-profile garment, making it easy to fit under your clothing. As a result, it is both lightweight and comfortable to wear. In addition, CompreFlex also provides an inner elastic sleeve to hold the garment in place while donning and doffing. This sleeve makes it so easy to don and doff. This garment is perfect for those needing help with a traditional compression stocking due to the inability to don and doff. Furthermore, Sigvaris uses some of the highest-quality Velcro on the market to give this garment durability and reliability.
The Sigvaris CompreFlex garment comes with either a transition or complete liners. The transition liners give you foot and ankle compression, while the rest of the stocking is a liner under the wrap garment. The complete liner has mild compression throughout the liner, which can be used under the garment or separately as a gentle compression sock. If neither of these liners proves enough compression to contain swelling in the foot, try the Sigvaris CompreBoot in addition to the liner.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Care and maintenance of your Sigvaris CompreFlex are simple and easy:
- First, be sure to close all the Velcro tabs.
- Place your garment in a mesh laundry bag to protect it. Then, you can machine wash on a gentle cycle with cold water.
- Tumble dry on a low heat setting or hang to dry.
- Do not use bleach, chlorine, fabric softeners, or other laundry additives.
When Velcro begins to wear and no longer sticks adequately, it will be time to replace your garment. Liners can also be purchased separately from the wrap garment as needed.
