PRLog - July 30, 2012 - PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- PEACHTREE CITY, GA – SIGVARIS, the global leader in medical compression garments, is excited to announce the launch of the popular ADVANCE Armsleeve in the United States. This product, which has already been gaining world-wide notoriety, was designed in collaboration with patients and medical professionals to create the most innovative product currently available on the market.
SIGVARIS ADVANCE Armsleeve
The ADVANCE Armsleeve is unique because it features microfiber softness, and is the only armsleeve to feature a Sensinnov® top band that holds the armsleeve in position without damaging delicate skin. In addition, ADVANCE was constructed to gently hug the arm, fight the force of gravity, and stay comfortably in place.
Other features that set ADVANCE apart include its unique moisture-wicking properties and antibacterial benefits as the result of silver ions being embedded in the fabric fibers. The armsleeve is currently available in 15-20mmHg and 20-30mmHg compression levels in beige. The stronger compression level has an optional gauntlet and also features both regular and plus sizes.
The Lymphatic System is a highly complex system that moves fluid throughout the body. It can become compromised due to cancer, surgery, injury, trauma or other causes. Compression armsleeves are typically recommended to keep fluid from building up and to improve circulation.
SIGVARIS has combined the latest fabric technologies to create a leading treatment choice for patients with lymphedema worldwide. ADVANCE not only meets medical efficacy standards, but also, goes beyond treatment options to deliver comfort to patients.
