What exactly is compression?

Compression therapy involves applying a sort of elastic device (compression stockings are the most frequent) to the limbs or other regions of the body to produce controlled pressure. The compression device compresses the vein walls and improves circulation.

Pressotherapy clothes made of flat fabric

Gloves with closed tips on the fingers and/or toes may or may not be worn with flat knit pressotherapy garments.

To avoid a tourniquet, arm garments will include a glove and sleeve component, with the sleeve linked to the shoulder. Similarly, if it were a leg garment, shorts would be attached to keep the compression stocking from rolling up.

Compression garments for lymphedema are also indicated in less aggressive lymphedema with finger swelling, albeit treatment with two different parts is recommended in these cases: sleeve and glove, stocking and thigh, or open-toe panty, depending on the condition. It is not always required to close the tips of the finger caps.

Given the difficulty of some patients in accommodating the lymphedema sleeves in one piece, the preparation can be done separately as an exception and always with the agreement of the prescribing physician. On the one hand, a pressotherapy glove would be made that would reach about 15 centimetres over the wrist and have a pad inside to prevent the application of a tourniquet or excessive pressure on the carpal joint. On the other hand, the sleeve would be created.
