Compression bandaging, although effective in reducing edema, does have its drawbacks. The application of bandages is time-consuming and requires skill. Furthermore, wearing bandages can negatively impact a person’s quality of life. Bandages can be uncomfortable and time-consuming. Moreover, hygiene can also be problematic, resulting in low compliance.
A DIFFERENT WAY TO BANDAGE
Realizing some of the issues patients and therapists had with bandaging, CircAid created a new way to achieve these results. They invented the Circaid Reduction Kits. CircAid Reduction Kit Arm combines all the benefits of inelastic compression with the advantages of a custom garment. The customizable reduction kit system is trimmed to fit in the clinic. Therefore, it can be adaptable to your patient’s unique needs. Designed for acute drainage phase lymphedema management, patients enjoy the liberating nature of an inelastic garment system they can remove for routine hygiene and re-apply themselves without the aid of a caregiver or clinician. As a result, they will never want to go back to bandaging!
In the initial case study of the reduction kit, 79% of the patients stated they would continue to use the product to help maintain their condition. Seventy percent described the Reduction in the Upper Leg as excellent. By the end of the trial, clinicians’ view of the reduction kit improved from the initial evaluation, with 85% rating it as “excellent.” Finally, 67% of clinicians gave the Reduction Kit Upper Leg an excellent rating for its ability to control edema and improve the patient’s skin.
