JoViPak UNILATERAL POST-MASTECTOMY PAD
The management of lymphedema in the chest wall can be challenging. JoViPak Unilateral Post-Mastectomy Pad can offer a customized solution to meet individual needs. This foam chip pad works well for lateral breast swelling and softens fibrotic areas. Use the JoViPak Unilateral Post-Mastectomy Pad with a Praire Wear compression bra or a Wear Ease Slimer compression camisole for maximum benefits.
FOUR DENSITY FOAM
The secret behind JoViPak’s effective and comfortable design is its use of a four-density foam chip mix and particular surface structure. Different densities of medical-grade chipped foam work to provide gentle pressure on the affected tissue. Therefore, guiding the lymphatic fluid to areas with functioning lymph nodes helps eliminate waste.
JoviPak Unilateral Post-Mastectomy Pad for the mastectomy patient with chest wall edema and/or radiation fibrosis over the anterior chest wall and the serratus anterior, with normal lymph drainage on the unaffected side. This pad covers the affected breast entirely and extends to the spine. It is filled with shredded foam and sewn with vertical lines for continuous flow. Therefore, the stitching pattern directs lymph flow from the affected area toward collection areas.
Polartec Power Dry fabric offers unique microfiber yarns. At the same time, a special weave disperses moisture and heat across a wide surface area. Furthermore, smooth, highly durable yarns are optimized to help move moisture away from the skin.
Use this pad with a compression garment for protection, comfort, and optimal benefits. The compression garment helps to push the foam chips into the affected area, moving lymph fluid. Wear Ease Slimer and the Praire Wear Huger Compression Bra are excellent choices.
