Swelling in your arms or legs can be a sign of lymphedema. A disproportionate increase in adipose tissue in the legs, and sometimes in the arms, can be a sign of lipedema. Although lymphedema and lipedema are different diseases, compression therapy is the key element of their treatment. JOBST® offers a wide range of made-to-measure and ready-to-wear garments, compression bandages and adjustable compression devices (also called compression wraps) for different stages of lymphedema and for lipedema.
In the following sections, we summarize the most important information for a better understanding of lymphedema and lipedema.
Once you are diagnosed with lymphedema or lipedema, your healthcare professional will help you to develop a personalized and holistic treatment plan. This also includes finding a garment that suits your medical and lifestyle needs. JOBST offers garments in different compression classes and styles, as well as adjustable compression devices (also called compression wraps).
