|20110087145||Short Stretch Therapeutic Compression Device for the Extremity - A compression device to be wrapped around the distal extremity of a patient for use in moderate to severe swelling/lymphedema. The device includes a flexible planar compression material of preferably short-stretch compression material. Fasteners are attached to the first and second band portions. The compression material in preferred embodiment contains short-stretch compression material with 20%-60% stretch. The device is designed such that it may be used to augment compression to the hand when used in conjunction with compression to the fingers and arm. Device is designed to be applied easier with one hand. Hybrid compression device incorporates planar compression material and glove concepts into a novel new invention, designed to maximize manual dexterity, comfort, and range of motion while providing a very high level of compression to the dorsal and palmar hand. Device is intended for clinic, home, or hospital use for significant swelling of the hand or foot for medical conditions such as lymphedema and severe edemas. Device may also have benefit burn or postoperative patients or patients with swelling and wounds to the foot or hand, where clam-shell type hybrid compression gauntlet/glove design makes donning and doffing of garment easier for fragile tissues to the dorsal and plantar hand areas, or dorsal/plantar foot areas.||04-14-2011|
|20100312160||CUSTOMIZABLE THERAPEUTIC COMPRESSION GARMENT AND METHOD - Provided is a therapeutic compression apparatus that includes a compression material. In one example, the apparatus includes a large surface area of a single sheet of compression material. The apparatus may include indicia that allow it to be trimmed to fit a patient.||12-09-2010|
|20100056973||Therapeutic Compression Garments - A therapeutic compression apparatus includes a liner having a tubular body portion with a proximal opening for receiving a limb of a patient. The tubular body portion includes an inside region with an inside circumference that is sized to extend about and in contact with the limb. The inside circumference is substantially identical to a circumference of the limb at a respective area of contact. The tubular body portion includes an outside region having an outside circumference that varies from the inside circumference at respective cross-sections through the tubular body, such that a first function of a ratio of the difference between the inside circumference and the outside circumference at a respective cross-section through the tubular body, divided by the inside circumference at said respective cross-section, and a second function of the inside circumference at said respective cross-section determines, in part, a pressure exerted on the limb at said cross-section when compression is applied by said therapeutic compression apparatus.||03-04-2010|
