SIGVARIS ADVANCE® armsleeve is SIGVARIS newest answer to the treatment of lymphoedema of the upper limbs. This product has been designed with and for the patient. The texture of SIGVARIS ADVANCE® is made of polyamide microfiber. Apart from its soft texture, this innovation microfiber incorporates a bacteriostatic additive. The non-organic agent contains silver ions that protects the skin and the knitting from bacteria multiplication. The non-bactericid agent keeps the natural saprophytic flora of the skin. Therefore, SIGVARIS ADVANCE® contributes in maintaining a good skin hygiene of the arm suffering from lymphoedema. Similar to cotton, the thermoregulating viscose has the greater advantage of a better absorption of skin moisture which provides a new comfort highly appreciated by patients. The choice of natural colour developed together with patients, the fine sewing reducing skin irritation, help patients with their compliance. In addition, SIGVARIS ADVANCE® armsleeve with mitten is the only armsleeve product that matches the International Best Practice guidelines - the mitten having the same compression level as the armsleeve.
