Body positivity is a major global movement that empowers people of all shapes and sizes, including those who use compression devices to manage health conditions. The latest compression devices support personal mobility, bodily autonomy, and living your best possible lifestyle.
The body positivity movement is all about inclusion and appreciating your body for what it is. Instead of taking the view that someone is limited by their lymphedema, lipedema, chronic venous disease, or other medical condition, body positivity says, “Let’s thrive!”
In this positive and inclusive spirit, Lympha Press presents new, innovative options for compression therapy with custom fits to suit all bodies.
For lower body therapy, Lympha Pants are an excellent choice. This lower extremity pneumatic compression garment appliance comes with three zippers to accommodate different sizes. Expanders are available to provide an additional increase in circumference if needed.
Lympha Pants don’t just cover the legs and knees: They also extend over the abdomen, down past the ankles, and around the foot, offering complete lower body coverage. Around the foot, the custom boot wraps for a great fit for most leg sizes.
The custom fit also makes it easy to slip into the Lympha Pants. They come with adjustable zippers and fasteners for maximum accessibility, even if you have mobility challenges.
When wearing their Lympha Pants, 24 chambers inflate according to the custom therapy program selected. People who use Lympha Pants report that it’s comfortable and can even lull them into an enjoyably relaxed and drowsy state.
Another option for lower body compression is the LymphaPod. It looks less like pants and more like a sleeping bag that slips over the legs and lower body.
This is the ideal compression garment for a larger-bodied person. The LymphaPod welcomes the body into a comfortable inflating and deflating garment appliance that treats the abdomen, hips, thighs, legs, and feet.
The LymphaPod has a fully adjustable fit, addressing the full range of body areas that are typically in need of extra compression support in larger bodies, such as inner thigh lobules. By incorporating the abdomen and hips, compression treatment with the LymphaPod is more comprehensive than with a leg garment alone.
Lympha Press also offers 4, 8, and 12-chamber leg sleeves for additional compression options. Patients and providers can select the garment that feels the most comfortable and delivers the best outcomes for the patient’s individual needs and symptoms.
Choose the 4 or 8-chamber sleeve for an easy-to-wear garment that is worn like a boot. It comes in a wide selection of standard sizes, plus custom sizing.
The 12-chamber sleeve also has a boot fit, plus additional chambers for increased compression application while maintaining a comfortable fit. The 4, 8, and 12-chamber leg sleeves can be customized to fit any body size or shape, including special sleeves designed for people with amputations.
