SIGVARIS CHIP PAD AXILLA
The Sigvaris Chip Pad Axilla provides comfortable, mild compression for lymphedema, and fibrotic tissue under the arm. Pair the Chip Pad Axilla with a Prairie Wear Compression Bra for maximum benefit. Open-cell foam chips in channel formation assist in massaging and facilitating drainage of interstitial fluid. Which in turn directs the lymphatic fluid to areas with functioning lymph nodes. Helping to move lymphatic fluid out. This Sigvaris Chip Pad Axilla can be used anywhere for post-surgical scarring or pockets of swelling and lymphedema but was specifically designed for under the arm.
When used with your compression garment, foam particles nestle into tissue to create localized tissue stretch and pressure differential. This tissue stretch opens initial lymphatic gaps to encourage the re-absorption of interstitial fluids and particles. Therefore, it helps to break up fibrosis and move fluid where it needs to go!

As a Swiss company, SIGVARIS GROUP has been 100% family-owned since it was founded in 1864 in Winterthur by Moritz Ganzoni-Sträuli and his associate Niklaus Barthelts. For about 100 years, SIGVARIS GROUP produced “rubber-elastic textiles,” sold in Switzerland and abroad. In addition, from 1958 to 1960, the company collaborated with the phlebologist Dr. Karl Sigg and developed a medical compression stocking to improve venous function and relieve venous-related conditions.
Machine wash the Chip pad on a gentle cycle using a mild detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners, which tend to break down material. Dry on low heat in the dryer because this will fluff up the foam chips.
