When the lymphatic system is compromised the result is fluid retention and painful tissue swelling (Lymphedema). Lymphedema affects more than 5 million Americans, and causes range from genetic predisposition and infection to surgery and cancer treatment. While there is no cure for lymphedema, there are a variety of treatments designed to help reduce swelling and control pain. Living with lymphedema can be a challenge. Advances for Daily Living can help you reduce swelling and improve your quality of life with our easy-to-use pumps and compression wear. We offer a variety of options in pumps and sleeve sizing, and our experienced staff will be happy to answer your questions and assist you in finding the perfect fit.
One of the most effective treatments for Lymphedema is the use of a pneumatic compression device, or a Lymphedema Pump. A sleeve is worn over the affected arm or leg, and the connected pump forces air into the chambers of the sleeve inflating it. With multiple sleeve chambers inflated sequentially, lymphatic pumps puts pressure on the affected limb, reducing the pooling of lymph fluid and encouraging it to flow away from the area. Whether lymphedema affects the arms or legs, lymphedema pumps are an effective way to promote healing and relieve pain, pressure, and discomfort. At ADL we offer a variety of pumps that are lightweight, portable and easy to use, and our knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist you in selecting the one that best suits your needs.
The pain associated with Lymphedema can also be aided by the use of compression stockings, sleeves and other compression garments. Designed to reduce swelling, our compression wear comes in a variety of options, allowing you to choose the ones that best meet your needs and fit your lifestyle. Since lymphedema most commonly affects the legs, we carry a large selection of Compression stockings to stimulate the lymphatic system, improve blood flow and lessen pain and swelling. From mild support to firm compression, we’ve chosen our quality compression stockings for their durability and soft, comfortable fabric.
