Compression therapy is an important component of lymphedema management. But did you know that the use of compression bandages and garments is not limited to the day? Your lymphatic system is still active in the nighttime, so why shouldn‘t your compression therapy?
During the decongestion phase, patients usually wear compression bandages overnight in order to support the reduction process.
In the maintenance phase, nighttime compression can help to prevent the accumulation of new lymph fluid throughout the night and may even counteract daytime swelling.
We know that some patients are worried that nighttime treatment may be uncomfortable, leading to a poor night‘s sleep for both them and their partner. Our JoviPak® assortment of nighttime garments are made with ivory organic cotton/lycra®, making it a soft and comfortable nighttime compression option to support you through a comfortable night’s sleep.
Our newly developed custom-made JOBST® Relax is a revolutionary night care garment that can be comfortably worn while you are resting and relaxing - not just while you are sleeping. The slim-line, flexible and lightweight design of JOBST® Relax allows freedom of movement, thus maximizing comfort while you are relaxing before bedtime as well as while you are sleeping.
