Introducing EdemaWear® - utilizing the new and innovative Fuzzy Wale Compression™ ("FWC") technology to provide enhanced lymphatic drainage and to treat edema of all types
EdemaWear® stockinettes are the new way to comfortably enhance the lymphatic function, leading to a decrease in painful inflammation at the skin level. Unlike traditional non-compressive stockinettes, EdemaWear® stockinettes provide light 15mm - 20mm Hg external compression similar to a tubular elastic bandage. Utilizing the new Fuzzy Wale Compression™ ("FWC") technology developed at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, EdemaWear® stockinettes deliver longitudinal compression via the fuzzy wale and Lycra® corduroy-like elastic fiber material which the stockinettes are made from. By wearing EdemaWear®, the soft and fuzzy wales will over time, gently press into the skin creating a ‘cornrow’ furrow. The areas of noncompressed skin between the furrows act as a zero pressure zone, which enhances lymphatic drainage from the compressed tissue in the furrows. Easy to apply and comfortable to wear, the latex-free EdemaWear® stockinettes help ‘melt’ away swelling in the extremities. May be worn alone or under compression bandages or wraps.
Available in a LITE version for use on tender skin, and a ‘cone-shaped’ version to accommodate extra wide thigh measurements (mid-thigh width of up to 60cm).
EdemaWear® stockinettes may be worn directly on the skin on any edematous extremity and are indicated for use for the following conditions with dramatic response:
