The MedaHand is designed for daytime or nighttime use by individuals with lymphedema, post-surgical swelling, chronic venous insufficiency, phlebitis, and other types of edema. The MedaHand provides 10-20 mmHg compression, or 20-40 mmHg compression with the optional UniStrap. This Spandex compression hand piece is made with WaveFoam, a unique open-cell foam that creates hi-lo pressure areas which gently massage the superficial lymphatic system. WaveFoam has been shown to be effective at softening hardened, fibrotic areas. The MedaHand has extra foam in the palm space for additional dorsal compression. It can be machine washed and dryed.
