Edema (Swelling)

What is Edema?

“Swelling” is clinically referred to as edema. It refers to an increase in fluid under the skin, often seen in the lower legs around the ankles and feet. Edema is very different from lymphedema, a condition involving swelling caused by a build-up of protein-rich fluid in the lymphatic vessels. Over time, if lymphedema is not treated, the affected area will continue to increase in size.

What Causes Edema?

Edema may be found in conjunction with sports injuries, hot weather, post-surgery, pregnancy, varicose veins, airplane travel, and standing or sitting for extended lengths of time. Sometimes there are underlying medical conditions that contribute to the presence of edema. If you have questions or concerns about swelling, have a medical professional evaluate you.

Using Compression Therapy

Compression garments are especially helpful in reducing mild to severe swelling. Juzo offers off the shelf or custom garments with a wide range of styles and a variety of materials to contain moderate to severe swelling. Contact your medical professional to find the correct Juzo compression garment.

Juzo compression garments are proudly made in the USA.
Juzo compression garments are made with synthetic elastomers, making them ideal for people who suffer from latex allergies.
Juzo's exclusive FiberSoft® manufacturing process involves micro-spinning every compression fiber with soft, protective threads to provide a comfortable, breathable, durable garment.
X-STATIC® harnesses the power of silver to create a powerful technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria on fabrics, eliminating human-based odor for the life of the garment. X-STATIC® is made by permanently bonding 99.9% metallic silver to the surface of a fiber.
Juzo's compression garment moves with you using fiber that stretches and recovers in both directions, crosswise and lengthwise.
Compression starts at distal end and gradually decreases as it moves up the limb. Graduated compression supports the management of Lymphedema or Venous Disease.
Easy to slip on and off. Machine wash and dry.
Casual and dress styles for men and women. Multiple print or color options, including seasonals. Great for work, home or play.
The major difference between a higher quality compression garment and a garment of lesser quality is the presence of an inlay thread, which provides a high level of compression consistency.
