ReidSleeve®

The pressure exerted on the limb is controlled by a series of Velcro straps.  This design allows the compression to be precisely tailored to the patient's needs.
 

The outer shell is made of durable, attractive nylon.

The inner lining is made of a blend of cotton and lycra to provide maximum comfort while maintaining effectiveness. 

 

Control of edema in the hand and wrist area is critical.  The ReidSleeve® incorporates comforting plastic plates to provide consistent, effective pressure to this critical area. 

ReidSleeve - Arm

ReidSleeve® --Arm

 

The ReidSleeve® applies a gentle, gradient pressure by use of a unique, soft foam insert.

ReidSleeve - Leg

ReidSleeve® --Leg

The data from the original study demonstrates that the ReidSleeve® is highly effective at controlling edema in this area.  In a 4 week study edema in the hands of affected patients was reduced by an average of 80%.

HOW DOES THE REIDSLEEVE® WORK?

The ReidSleeve® applies a gentle, gradient pressure by use of a unique, soft foam insert.  Compression is tailored to the patient's needs by a series of adjustable straps.  The sleeve easily slides over the affected limb and then the compression bands are adjusted. 

 

A specially designed gauge is used to assess the pressure exerted over any region of the limb.  The gauge is as easy to use as a blood pressure cuff.  This simple procedure insures that compression applied to the patient's limb is consistently applied and in the proper range to provide optimal results.  Patients can fit the sleeve in minutes without assistance and have the confidence of knowing they are applying the pressure prescribed by their doctor.  As the patient improves, the ReidSleeve® can be adjusted to the new arm size thereby maintaining the proper pressure range.IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR CLINICAL VISITS: 

To obtain optimal results, we recommend several close follow-up appointments to check the patients progress and to readjust to compression as needed.
