This is the only technology specifically designed to apply effective pressure to the skin, subcutaneous tissue and connective tissue of the deep dermis the areas where the Oedema can accumulate and where fibrosis can build up. That is why the high and low pressure exerted by our products is such an effective method for treating Lymphoedema. The technology works by applying high and low pressure points to the affected area. The high points force excess fluid into the area of low points, forming channels for which the lymphatic fluid can be removed naturally through the lymphatic and venous system. Flat compression garments constricts the affected area, often causing the lymphatic system to obstruct further. Please see images below of restrictions and damage caused by conventional compression garments. This concept is so unique that it was awarded a patent by the U. The red dots on the images below are the highs and lows, negative and positive pressure , made from the inner lining reducing the fibrous, thickened tissue and creating lymph channels for the fluid to move through easily.
Reid Sleeve Compression Garments
The ReidSleeve U. Patents 5,, 5,, 6,, is made from a soft foam core. This is specially designed to provide a gentle gradient pressure. The sleeve easily slides over the affected limb and then the compression straps are adjusted. The outer shell is made of durable, attractive nylon, available in many colors. The inner lining is made of a blend of cotton and lycra to provide maximum comfort while maintaining effectiveness. Control of edema in the hand and wrist area is critical.
Reidsleeve Compression Garments
The soft, convoluted foam design creates high pressure points which provide a gentle, deep-tissue compression, while the low-pressure points help to prevent blockage of vascular flow. Effective treatment of edema requires compression that can get to the deep subcutaneous tissues without obstructing the lymphatic and venous outflow. The ReidSleeve is the only technology specifically designed to apply effective pressure to the skin, subcutaneous tissue and the connective tissue of the deep dermis, the areas where edema can accumulate and where fibrosis can build up.

In most instances elastic compression sleeves and stockings should be removed while sleeping. They should be removed before bed because, while at rest, elastic can roll, thereby creating pressure spots that can disturb the flow of blood and lymph. They should be periodically washed and allowed to fully dry, thereby giving them a chance to restore to full compressive strength.
