Compression garments put pressure on the hand, arm or trunk to stimulate lymph fluid flow in the right direction.
Parts of the garment can include:
- A finger-less glove or gauntlet for the hand
- A sleeve for the arm
- A vest for the trunk
If you have mild lymphedema
, the garment can be a useful treatment.
It is recommended to have your garment fitted by someone professional or with experience. If it is fitted inappropriately, your lymphedema may worsen.
