JUZO COMPRESSION WRAP CALF
Occasionally I will spotlight a product that I have found exceptionally outstanding. Today I would like to introduce you to the Juzo Compression Wrap Calf. Manufactured with care to detail and the excellent quality that you have come to expect from Juzo, this compression wrap garment provides therapy, comfort, versatility, and a superior fit. This Juzo wrap is a short stretch compression garment with high working pressure (30-60 mmHg), which helps to move lymphatic fluid out of the affected limb. Therefore this garment can be used in either the decongestion phase or the maintenance phase of lymphedema treatment.
Brianne Callahan, DPT, PRPC, CTL-LANA, use the Juzo Compression Wrap frequently. Brianne says, “It has good LE (lower extremity) containment, and you can move the Velcro as needed to fit the limb better as the edema reduces. I use the Juzo Wrap for patients with minimal edema and who may be working with a lower budget.”
The Juzo Compression Wrap Calf garment is also excellent for those suffering from poor circulation. Its slip-on stretch panel and Velcro tabs make it much easier to don and doff than a traditional compression stocking. Furthermore, unlike a compression stocking, it can be worn as nighttime and daytime garments.
The Velcro of this garment is removable and replaceable. (Velcro tabs can be purchased separately). This allows for easy adjustment of the garment straps as the lymph fluid moves out of the affected limb, causing possible fluctuation in size. In addition, because the Velcro is removable, it also allows for the cutting down of straps when necessary as reduction occurs.
Juzo’s uniquely designed notches and minimal overlying of straps help to prevent gapping and bulk. This also gives the Juzo Compression Wrap garment a very low profile, fitting under most clothing easily.
SLIP-ON STRETCH PANEL
Juzo has redesigned this compression wrap garment with a slip-on stretch panel to secure the garment for easy donning and doffing. However, if you have difficulty bending down to slip the garment over your foot, you can still get this Juzo garment without the stretch panel.
This is also a reversible compression garment giving you the choice of a beige or a black wrap garment in one. Not only that – but by being reversible, you have a new fabric to attach the Velcro. Those who have used Velcro wrap garments know that it’s not just the Velcro that wears out but the material it connects to. This can give you nearly twice the life of a comparable compression wrap garment.
The Juzo Compression Wrap garment comes with a pair of Full Foot liners. These liners give you compression for the foot and ankle, while the rest of the stocking serves as a liner under the wrap garment. Also available is a pair of open-toed anklets with a separate stockinette liner.
Still, the sizing is another advantage of the Juzo Compression Wrap for lower legs. It comes in a Regular and Long length for a more exact fit and a Max sizing for the calf. This accommodates a larger calf with a smaller ankle. Extender straps are also available to accommodate additional sizing.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF JUZO COMPRESSION WRAP CALF
Care and maintenance of your Juzo Compression Wrap Calf are simple and easy. First, you will want to remove all the half-circle Velcro from the straps. Then you can machine wash in warm water. It is strongly recommended that you use a garment bag. Tumble dry on a low heat setting. Do not use bleach, chlorine, fabric softeners, or other laundry additives.
VERSATILE GOOD, QUALITY COMPRESSION
Compression Velcro Wrap garments have been around for a while. However, Juzo continues to make improvements to this product. With the ease of donning, an extensive range of sizing, and the versatility of a reversible garment, Juzo’s Compression Wrap Calf garment is a winner.
Barbara Sinclair is a recent recipient of the Juzo Wrap Compression Garment. Barb says, “ After being diagnosed with lymphedema several years ago, I started using compression stockings. I tried all types and styles, and lengths. Using those compression garments was uncomfortable, hot, and never fit correctly. Then I was introduced to Juzo garments, and my life with compression changed. The garments are comfortable [and] reversible with black and beige for fashion advantage. Because of washable liners, they are easily adjustable with Velcro bindings and easy to care for.
Furthermore, the garments can be used all day and all night. Since the garments are comfortable, adjustable, and fashionable, and the cost is not prohibitive, they will be used daily and at night. This is what is necessary to live with lymphedema.”
