Benefits of Nighttime Compression
At medi, optimal care goes far beyond the products: holistic care also includes accompanying you in a variety of ways through thorough therapy.
Nighttime compression garments are a traditional means of providing compression and support during the nighttime, but even during periods of low activity to help manage and treat Lymphedema, edema and venous conditions. These garments exert less compression than daytime garments, and the foam helps to gently break up tissue fibrosis.
Some patients are surprised to learn that they must wear specialized garments around the clock. That doesn’t mean that you wear the same garment all the time, without ever removing it. Your doctor will likely prescribe garments that should be worn during daylight hours, and separate garments that are appropriate for nighttime wear, while you sleep.
Many compression garments should not be worn during sleep, and some patients may struggle with self-bandaging at night. However, nighttime compression garments can provide an option for those patients looking for comfort and a more compliant management of their lymphedema.
- Cuts down on bandaging time.
- Continued treatment and help maintain achieved reduction.
- Can help ease the application of daytime garments.
- Better quality of sleep.
