Patients’ compliance and the continuous wear of compression stockings are important aspects of an effective management of Chronic Venous Disease (CVD). However, many patients do not comply with their compression therapy, because they consider the compression stockings a quality of life issue in and of itself.1
As the leading brand in compression therapy JOBST® is constantly working on new solutions to support therapists and improve patient quality of life.
We believe that increasing the comfort for the patient can help him to comply to the compression therapy. JOBST® Sensitive is a non-binding, easy to wear silicone band that is gentle on patients skin, resulting in higher wearing comfort.
JOBST® Sensitive is made with a silicone yarn that is woven in the welt fabric. It provides an even, area-wide distribution of friction across the entire welt. This creates a soft grip of the band on the skin and a low sensation of pressure to the patient.
Additionally, skin imprints and red marks are reduced visibly.
Especially during summer or exercise sweat accumulates easily underneath silicone bands. JOBST® Sensitive absorbs moisture and sweat underneath the welt much faster2, making the patient feel less sweaty and more comfortable. It also reduces the risk of skin irritations caused by maceration in this area.
JOBST® Sensitive does not only address the patient, but also the healthcare professionals and other parties who are involved in the management of Chronic Venous Disease (CVD). It offers multiple benefits and aims for:
