More than just a good night's sleep

Lymphoedema management can be challenging and requires special attention - right around the clock. The use of compression therapy to manage lymphoedema is well acknowledged but there is limited published information relating to compression therapy and outcomes during periods of rest or at night. We conducted a patient survey1 on 94 lymphoedema patients from five different countries, asking them about their oedema at night and how it affected their lives. Patients in the study using night-time compression reported benefits of reduced swelling, improved pain management and better sleep. By comparison, for the patients where night-time compression was not used, an increase in swelling was reported by 89% of patients. 

JOBST Relax is designed to complement lymphoedema management during the day and offers an alternative to night-time compression solutions such as compression bandages. The garments provide the oedema control a patient needs, both at night-time and during periods of relaxation, combined with the look and comfort that patients want.
