What is it about?

Compression therapy regimens for those who must wear it 24 hours daily. The 24 hour interval plan is a reference for patients and clinicians to use in designing a compression wear regimen which is individual to the patient. This may include times when compression is off for skin and hygiene or when different levels of compression is worn based on the task or time of day. The patient clinician partnership allows optimal therapeutic compression to be recommended for tasks to allow complete control of edema and patient satisfaction with quality of life.
