LYMED SKIN

Pressure garments for scar management

Pressure treatment can be used as a prophylactic measure for wounds or skin grafts that do not heal as fast thus having an increased risk of hypertrophic scars. Garments should be used as soon as the healing skin can tolerate the optimal scar treatment pressure. Lymed Skin™ products are available for all body parts, and products are mainly custom-made.

Lymed Skin garments for scar treatment are manufactured with even pressure. In even pressure garments the pressure is evenly distributed throughout the product. Products are used for individual scar treatment with optimal scar management pressure. Garments are used e.g. in burn treatment, scar treatment and skin grafts.

To ensure product’s safety, Lymed suggests critical approach towards suitability of standard-sized products in scar treatment. According to literature, optimal benefits from pressure treatment cannot be achieved if the garment is too loose. On the other hand, too tight or an ill-fitting product may cause a negative effect. Lymed recommends that garments should be custom-made to sustain optimal pressure without causing tissue damage. The fit of the product should be monitored regularly.

LYMED COMPRESSION

Medical compression garments

Compression treatment is needed when the person has venous insufficiency, lymphatic edema, venous ulcers or swelling caused by injuries or operations. Swelling is caused by the intercellular accumulated fluid. The reason for this might be insufficiencies in the lymphatic system or surface veins or even tissue damage. Compression garments support the natural lymphatic circulation of the body. Preventive measures are recommended to those with stagnant lifestyles (lots of sitting or standing), when travelling, during pregnancies and in the aftercare of operations.

Lymed Compression™ products are mainly custom-made with compression class determined by the person responsible for client’s care. Compression garments can be used in treating edema in e.g. breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and during pregnancy. Garments are used in venous insuffiencies and embolisms.

To ensure product’s safety, Lymed suggests critical approach towards suitability of standard-sized products in compression treatment. According to literature, optimal benefits from pressure treatment cannot be achieved if the garment is too loose. On the other hand, too tight or an ill-fitting product may cause a negative effect. Lymed recommends that garments should be custom-made to sustain optimal compression without causing tissue damage. The fit of the product should be monitored regularly.

LYMED SENSE

Neurological pressure garments

Lymed Sense™ garments are used in occupational and neurological physiotherapy of clients with e.g. cerebral palsy (CP), autism, hypotonia, Erb’s or serratus anterior palsy or other neurological conditions. The garments are applied for posture control and tone management, improving the functional skills and body awareness. Lymed Sense garments are also used to treat different types of pain (e.g. CRPS).

Lymed Sense garments can be fully customized to meet the goals of client’s treatment and to support client’s everyday activities. Zippers, velcros, straps and splint or neoprene pockets are examples of additions which can be used to add comfort and functionality of the product.

To ensure product’s safety, Lymed suggests critical approach towards suitability of standard-sized products in client’s treatment. According to literature, optimal benefits from pressure treatment cannot be achieved if the garment is too loose. On the other hand, too tight or an ill-fitting product may cause a negative effect. Lymed recommends that garments should be custom-made to sustain optimal pressure without causing tissue damage. The fit of the product should be monitored regularly.

LYMED INTERIM & LIGHT

Inetrim care and light pressure garments

Lymed Interim & Light™ garments are standard-sized products with light even pressure. Interim & Light garments are mostly used in the beginnig of burn treatment when actual pressure treatment is too early to start due to open wounds or acclimatization to the pressure. Garments can reach theoritical pressure of 10-18 mmHg which is proven to be beneficial in prevention of hypertrophic scars. Pressure level can be slightly affected with the selection of size. Products are intended for short-term use prior to custom-made garments.

Lymed Interim & Light garments also provide an easy alternative to custom-made garments in pain treatment. Pressure garments acts as a stimulation treatment in pain management of e.g. CRPS patients.

To ensure product’s safety, Lymed suggests critical approach towards suitability of standard-sized products in client’s treatment. According to literature, optimal benefits from pressure treatment cannot be achieved if the garment is too loose. On the other hand, too tight or an ill-fitting product may cause a negative effect. Lymed recommends that garments should be custom-made to sustain optimal pressure without causing tissue damage. The fit of the product should be monitored regularly.

LYMED POST-OP

Post-operational support garments

Lymed Post-Operation™ products are standard-sized products which are used in the after care of different surgeries to remove and prevent swelling, bruising and alleviate the pain in the operated area. The compression and pressure treatment supports rehabilitation by helping to regain mobility. Multiple sources indicate that pressure treatment supports healing by removing excess fluids from the area and preventing edema after the surgery. Garments are also used to ensure the attachment of the operated tissue. Common examples of use are aftercare of liposuction and operations of face, breasts or midsection.

To ensure product’s safety, Lymed suggests critical approach towards suitability of standard-sized products in client’s treatment. According to literature, optimal benefits from pressure treatment cannot be achieved if the garment is too loose. On the other hand, too tight or an ill-fitting product may cause a negative effect. Lymed recommends that garments should be custom-made to sustain optimal pressure without causing tissue damage. The fit of the product should be monitored regularly.

LYMED WELL-BEING

Pressure garments for wellness and health

Lymed Well-being™ products increase body awareness, help to reduce tension, pain and incorrect posture. The products are made for everyday use and do not restrict mobility.

Pressure garments strengthen messages transmitted by our receptors to our brains: an active information path means that muscles activate better, too, giving the body continuous information and instructions to seek itself to a more natural position, thus improving the quality of our movement. Lymed Well-being products also support metabolism and prevent fluid accumulation.

Lymed Well-being products are different from other posture products by being custom-made: that guarantees products’ fit and functionality.

LYMED ANIMAL

Custom-made, medical pressure garments for animals

A custom-made Lymed Animal™ garment has a medically controlled pressure.

Lymed Dog™ products have affect the animal’s ability to re-focus and self-appease. Based on studies made within the scope of human medicine, the calming effect of pressure is rooted in strengthening proprioseptics and awakening the deep sensory input. The function of the supporting garment is based on enhancing proprioseptics of the body, body awareness and deep pressure input. In different disorders of sensory integrations the feeling of pressure in large areas can help to manage the pressure inputs and overcome the feeling of irritation and malaise. This has a favorable effect on the ability to concentrate and generalized feeling of ease.
