Custom flat-knit compression can be a beneficial solution for managing lymphedema. These compression garments are designed to support and reduce swelling, improving overall comfort. The short-stretch properties of the fabric offer several advantages, including easier donning and doffing and increased compression during movement. Flat-knit garments also have a higher containment level and can accommodate skin folds.
Custom flat-knit compression products benefit maintenance therapy and can provide individualized solutions that over-the-counter options may not. The knitting process allows for endless possibilities in creating garments that address specific compression needs. While flat-knitted stockings have less elasticity compared to circular-knitted ones, they offer a stable barrier and a perfect fit through variable stitch counts.
At The Compression Closet, we work with the leading manufacturers of custom compression garments. We feel that each of these companies provides different values we want to offer. If you feel insecure in your measuring skills, you might want to go with Jobst. Jobst will allow for two remakes of the garment. Medi and Juzo will allow one remake, while Pure Medical will work with you until your garment fits. If you are looking for a fast turnaround, Juzo offers their Made-to-Measure Express service, which has a 72-hour turnaround time. Looking for fashion? Try Medi for colors, patterns, and even jewels on your garments.
Ultimately, the decision to use custom flat-knit stockings should be made in consultation with a healthcare professional familiar with your lymphedema needs. Your lymphedema therapist may have a company that they prefer to work with as well. While they may be more costly than over-the-counter options, custom flat-knit compression can provide optimal care for lymphedema.
