THE FARROW DESIGN
The FarrowWrap Classic is designed with smart elastic short stretch bands and composed of a multi-layer fabric design; its fabric has been clinically proven over many years of use and on thousands of patients worldwide. The rigid nature of the material offers performance beyond the compression range, making it an excellent choice for those with moderate to severe edema. The band widths provide optimal overlap of bands from bottom to top. The Velcro system makes it easy to adjust and fit the patient’s leg. This system also makes it easy for patients to adjust the straps due to edema fluctuations.
Jobst FarrowWrap Classic is a highly effective compression garment for moderate to severe edema control. The “Original FarrowWrap” is used and loved by people worldwide.
BANDAGING FOR LYMPHEDEMA
The bandaging system for lymphedema can be complex for some, especially those with weak hands, lower back problems, or obesity. The FarrowWrap is designed to accommodate such patients by providing an easy-to-apply, effective garment.
The FarrowWrap Classic system uses the principles of short-stretch bandaging, providing both low resting and high working pressure. Resting pressure is the pressure exerted onto the body from the outside when the muscle is at rest. This short-stretch system is very effective in the treatment and management of lymphedema.
DONNING THE FARROWWRAP CLASSIC
First, apply a liner to protect the garment and increase comfort. Next, unwrap the leg piece and lay the wrap flat on the ground behind your leg with the label facing the floor. Next, grab the bottom two straps and wrap them firmly around your ankle. If you are wearing a foot piece, this band should overlap the foot piece. Next, apply the remaining bands in the same manner. When properly donned, the white label will be located just below the knee crease. If you have difficulty bending over, lay the garment flat on your bed or an ottoman to don. The garment should feel snug and comfortable, never painful.
The FarrowWrap Classic garment comes with a non-compressive liner. If you require compression in the foot, you can also use the FarrowWrap Classic foot piece. However, if this is too bulky, you might opt for a Farrow Hybrid Liner instead. This stocking only compresses the foot and ankle and is to be used with a wrap garment.
CARE OF GARMENT
