Lymphedema Depot Offers Solaris Foot and Lower Leg Swelling Solutions in Canada
Foot care is a growing field of healthcare service that is coming into its own in Canada. Lymphedema Depot, in partnership with Solaris Inc., is getting involved by offering a line of foot care garments that make life easier for all concerned.
Lymphedema Depot carries a line of products manufactured in the US by Solaris, Inc., that can help address these problems. Healing is highly dependent on healthy micro-circulation and resolution of edema and micro-edemas, and the Solaris products are designed to assist in these processes.
Caresia footwear encompasses the whole foot to a few centimetres above the ankles. The seams are on the outside to prevent irritation. The Caresia footwear features sewn channels filled with chipped foam on all surfaces, including the sole. This creates soft pressure differentials that positively affect micro-circulation in the tissues. Swelling is addressed and softened and circulation is gently encouraged. They can be worn to address many forms of edema affecting the foot and ankle. They are also gentle enough to complement wound dressings for lower extremity ulcers to assist in avoiding lymphostasis and encouraging the healing process.
Caresia is also available in lower leg wear, covering the feet and extending to just below the knees. For swelling related to chronic venous insufficiency or dependent swelling that extends above the ankles, the Caresia lower leg garment provides an effective light variable compression. The compression can be tailored with short stretch bandaging if higher levels of compression are needed. It can be worn overnight to help manage chronic swelling or during the day around the house for more comprehensive needs.
For foot and lower leg swelling associated with lymphedema, venous insufficiency and other conditions Lymphedema Depot also offers the Solaris ReadyWrap line of products. ReadyWraps are inelastic medical binders that offer distinct advantages in controlling swelling. They create a rigid barrier to contain swelling of the foot and lower leg, yet they are comfortable, breathable and skin friendly. ReadyWraps are also low profile garments, allowing the wearer to wear shoes and trousers normally. They are available in a toes-to-ankle foot unit as well as a separate ankle-to-below-
Lymphedema Depot also now carries the Solaris Silver Liner, a sock which has been designed specifically to be worn under compression garments. The Silver Liners are manufactured with a blend of materials that result in a soft, comfortable and breathable fabric with anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-static properties due to the presence of the highly regarded X-Static brand silver fibres.
Wearing the Silver Liner increases comfort and protects the material of compression garments from direct contact with the skin. The Solaris Silver Liners help to and keep the compression garment fresher longer.
