Products to help those with DVT, Varicose Veins, Leg Ulcers & Lymphedema
Compression garments can be used to manage a variety of conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, Varicose Veins, Lymphedema, Edema, Leg Ulcers, or simply to aid those who are experiencing swelling during pregnancy or after surgery.
These firmly fitting garments may be difficult for the average person to pull over their legs and arms! With most users experiencing a lower level of mobility, or simply having to wear these continually, many have looked for an easier way to deal with the discomfort of donning their compression garments. This is where a sock aid like the EZY-As Compression Stocking Donner can help.
Those who are prone to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) may wear medical compression stockings to control this condition, especially when conducting activities which involve long periods of sitting, such as long flights or rest after hospital treatment. DVT products such as compression garments play a key role in reducing leg pain and swelling, which can lead to blood clots forming. The major risk of DVT is if the blood clot is able to separate and embolise into the lungs, forming a pulmonary embolism.
Sufferers of DVT use the EZY-As compression sock aid to deal with the difficulty of donning their compression garments.
The first step in treating varicose veins often involves wearing compression garments for the management of pain, hyperpigmentation and edema. With many sufferers of varicose veins experiencing a lower level of mobility due to age, pregnancy, leg trauma or weight, many sufferers use varicose veins products such as the Ezy-As donning aid to make the application of compression socks and stockings easier.
Those who have poor circulation of blood in their leg veins may be at risk of developing a venous leg ulcer on or close to their ankle. The use of medical compression therapy may be indicated for these people. Ulcer products such as the Ezy-As assist those with leg ulcers as they often struggle to bend over and pull the tight stockings over their legs, due to suffering from conditions such as osteoarthritis, paralysis or a leg injury. A foot funnel can assist in putting shoes on, as it has a rope attachment so you don't need to bend over and handle the shoe.
Lymphedema is unfortunately a condition without a cure at present. Compression garments play a role in the long-term management of this condition, particularly after undertaking physical therapy. Many who deal with this condition will regularly use lymphedema products to manage the accumulation of fluid. Many of our clients find that the Ezy-As sock and stocking aid makes the daily living hassle of putting compression garments on their arms and legs just that little bit easier.
