Lymphedema Products carries a comprehensive line of compression garments for the suppression of swelling and the control of lymphedema in the upper extremities. With so many designs and manufacturers to choose from, you're all but guaranteed to find the perfect item, featuring the fit, style, compression level, and comfort level you require.
Often called compression sleeves, these medical-grade garments feature graduated compression, to help your body's natural circulation properly drain and recycle lymphatic fluid away from the arms and back towards the heart. Other upper-extremity garment options for the control of lymphedema include gloves and gauntlets.
We offer compression sleeves in a wide array of styles and colors from a variety of trusted manufacturers, including BSN Jobst, Juzo, LympheDIVAs, Medi, Sigvaris, Solaris, Solidea, and LympheDUDEs (for men and boys).
Many people are required to wear compression sleeves or other upper-extremity compression garments after undergoing treatment for breast cancer. That's because lymph nodes in the armpits are often removed or otherwise impacted by surgical interventions and/or radiation therapy. Remaining nodes may struggle to accomplish filtration and drainage activities as efficiently as before. As a result, lymphatic fluid may accumulate in the tissues of the upper or lower arms, wrists and hands. Properly fitted compression sleeves, featuring the correct grade of medical compression, have been proven to provide relief from this uncomfortable and often unsightly side-effect.
Options vary by manufacturer. Some customers prefer to wear sleeves that are as unobtrusive as possible. Others choose the opposite approach. We offer garments to fulfill either objective. The Harmony Combined Arm Sleeve and Gauntlet, from Medi, for example, comes in understated, sheer "natural" colors, such as sand, caramel, and black. This is an elegant, unobtrusive garment that can be worn in public with confidence.
In contrast, certain designs from manufacturers such as LympheDIVAs or LympheDUDEs seem determined to declare their presence with exuberance. Featuring bold, whimsical and fanciful designs and colors, these garments are not shy about drawing attention and comment. From stylized Japanese koi, to the inner workings of a cybernetic organism, you'll find an amusing array of designs to choose from.
