The SIGVARIS GeniFit male chip pad provides comfortable, mild compression for genital edema, lymphedema and fibrotic tissue. Pair the GeniFit Male Chip Pad with Sigvaris CompreShort or Capri 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.
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 re-absorbtion of interstitial fluids and particles. Therefore helping to break up fibrosis and move fluid where it needs to go!
Use GeniFit Male Chip Pad Tall for genital and abdominal swelling, whereas the GeniFit Short would be used for genital swelling alone. These pads are extremely soft and pliable. Both pads are low profile and very flexible. This makes it easy to manipulate into small areas and provides comfort.
Machine wash the Chip pad on a gentle cycle using a mild detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners, which tends to break down material. Dry on low heat in the dryer because this will fluff up the foam chips.
