Lymphatic Therapy: Bespoke Compression
Flat-knitted compression stockings are very important in the treatment of lymphedema and lipoedema, as the required compression can only be achieved for every individual body dimension with flat-knitted products. With VenoTrain “delight” and VenoTrain “curaflow” Bauerfeind offers bespoke treatment for oedemas of all degrees of severity.
Drainage disorders of the lymph system give rise to swellings and oedemas which place a stress on the tissues and can lead to inflammations and skin damage. There are three stages in oedemas that can already be seen and felt. In the spontaneously reversible stage 1, the tissue is soft and can easily be pressed in with a visible indentation. In the spontaneously irreversible stage 2, the tissue is by contrast harder so that there is hardly any impression when pressed. Pain and limitations of movement can also arise in this stage. Stage 3, also known as elephantiasis, is characterised by a severe increase in volume of the oedema with sometimes extreme proportions.
