CARESIA MCP – AXILLA
L&R – Solaris Caresia MCP-Axilla bandage liner simplifies complex multi-layered bandaging protocols. Caresia is one of The Compression Closet’s favorite compression garments for managing lymphedema. The Caresia provides an alternative to foam liners, stockinettes, and gauze. Caresia MCP-Axilla Arm Sleeves are designed for the active phase of therapy and manufactured with the same technology as Solaris’ custom Tribute and TributeWrap garments. Therefore Caresia maximizes therapeutic results.
EASY TO FIT
The Caresia MCP-Axilla Arm Sleeve is easy to fit with four simple measurements. You will need the circumference of the knuckles in the hand, wrist, and largest upper arm. You will also need a length measurement from the knuckles to the axilla (the armpit). This garment has a lot of stretch to it, and a snug fit is best, so if you are in-between sizes, it is recommended to go with the smaller size.
EASY TO USE
L&R Solaris Caresia MCP-Axilla Arm Sleeve is extremely easy to use. The outer seam of the Caresia follows the top surface of t your arm, from the back of your hand to your shoulder. Fold the upper portion of the Caresia over the lower portion. Slide the folded garment over your hand and lower arm. Gently unfold the garment onto your upper arm and adjust to ensure the outer seam follows the top of your arm. Next, starting at the palm, apply short-stretch bandages snugly over your Caresia, according to your trained medical professional’s instructions. Wearing your Caresia is like getting a lymphatic massage. It’s an effective and valuable tool for managing your lymphedema.
ALTERNATIVE USES OF THE CARESIA
Although Caresia MCP-Axilla Arm Sleeve makers designed the product as a bandage liner, therapists soon realized it provided an alternative nighttime compression garment. Compression nighttime garments can be costly, especially when custom-made. However, the Caresia garment proved to be an easy solution for those unable to afford a standard nighttime compression garment.
Wearing compression garments at night has proven beneficial in maintaining gains obtained during lymphedema therapy. Because your body doesn’t have to fight gravity while lying down, it’s easier for your compression garments to be effective. Wearing nighttime compression garments is like getting a gentle lymphatic massage all night.
