Compression wear is a tool that improves venous and lymphatic health for individuals of all ages. While compression hosiery and wraps have been shown clinically to combat diagnoses of venous and lymphatic diseases, many people refuse to wear it even when it is prescribed.
Patients often complain that compression wear is too hot, too difficult to put on and too uncomfortable. The Coolflex devices for the upper and lower extremity are lightweight, easy don, low profile and cool to wear. Made of the novel Spacer Fabric, the Coolflex garments are clinically proven for the treatment of chronic venous disease including leg ulcers and lymphatic disorders of the arm.
Spacer fabric is unlike regular compression materials. It uses two separate materials which are joined by a microfilament yarn. The two fabrics being joined together by the yarn create a breathable, 3D “microclimate” between layers. The cool air provided by the ventilation in the layers pushes out the heat and vapor, providing temperature control and maximum air circulation.
The Coolflex family of products include; the Coolflex Standard Calf, Coolflex Standard Foot and the Coolflex Arm.
Each garment is made of the lightweight Spacer Fabric and includes key features that promote self-management and healing.
Key product features include:
The Coolflex Standard Calf offers compression to the calf. Individuals managing venous disease with active ulcers will benefit from the lightweight material and thermoregulating properties of the wrap. The product features the interior stretch panel and closes laterally. The lateral closure of the product does not require patients to bend forward fully when applying it making independent application possible. Combine the Coolflex Standard Calf with the Coolflex Standard Foot garment to create a full lower leg compression system.
The Coolflex Standard Foot offers compression to the foot and ankle. The product features a low-profile design, which allows the wrap to fit in most footwear, promoting uninterrupted treatment.
The Coolflex Standard Arm is an inelastic compression garment for the arm. The product is ideal for patients managing lymphedema following a mastectomy or other surgical intervention. It features a pleated elbow, which helps to maintain the full range of motion of the arm and providesadded comfort. Pair the Coolflex Standard Arm with the Dorsal Pocket Glove for arm and hand compression.
