Living a carefree life with edema!

Swelling can occur in various parts of the body as a result of injury, inflammation, or an underlying condition. This accumulation of fluid in the tissues is called edema. Most commonly edema presents as swollen legs and swollen feet but can affect various parts of the body. Unfortunately, edema can go unnoticed for some time before pain and complications appear.

Learn about the different forms of edema including lymphedema and lipedema, and how to successfully manage symptoms and live an active and carefree life!




Treat lipoedema and lymphedema with flat-knit compression stockings

Flat-knit compression garments alleviate the symptoms of lymphedema and lipedema due to their structural stability. In the treatment of lymphedema, the purpose of compression is to manage symptoms and slow the further progression of the disease; however, compression is also effective at providing relief during severe stages. In the treatment of lipedema flat-knit compression is very well suited for treatment in severe stages.

Because edema affects each individual in different ways, your compression garments should be custom-fit and cater to your specific needs.
