SIGVARIS CHIPSLEEVE FULL LEG
Compression garments with foam chips, such as the Sigvaris ChipSleeve Full Leg, are nighttime garments that provide a gentle lymphatic massage all night long. The foam chips pressed into the affected area create tissue stretch and pressure differentials. This pressure encourages the re-absorption of lymphatic fluid and helps move lymph. This nighttime compression garment covers a large area, which comes up high on the thigh. It is also one of the only full-leg, off-the-shelf garments you can purchase. Most other nighttime leg garments come in sections.
The Sigvaris ChipSleeve Full Leg features open-cell, chipped foam to massage fibrotic tissue, stimulating fluid movement and helping to soften superficial tissue. Use as a bandage liner in the decongestive phase of lymphedema treatment or as an independent compression garment. The moisture-wicking fabric has unique stretch characteristics, therefore providing form-fitting comfort.
Nighttime compression garments have demonstrated improved control of edema in many cases. Direction channels on this garment facilitate efficient lymph drainage – moving lymphatic fluid while you sleep or rest.
OVERSLEEVE AND LINER
Sigvaris ChipSleeve Full Leg has a cover to help push the foam chips in and provide effective and gentle therapy while you sleep. This Oversleeve, used with the ChipSleeve, provides moderate gradient compression of 15-25 mmHg. The sleeve also comes with two cotton liners. Use the liners to protect your garment from dirt and oils on the skin.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF SIGVARIS CHIPSLEEVE
Sigvaris ChipSleeve Full Leg is simple and easy to care for. If you use the cotton liners, the Chipsleeve will only need to be laundered sometimes. Wash cotton liners after each use. Liners are cotton and have no compression; wash as you would any cotton material. Wash the Chipsleeve and the Oversleeve in the machine on a gentle cycle using mild detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners. Dry the Chipsleeve in the dryer on low heat to help fluff the foam chips. Hang the Oversleeve to dry.
