Intended Use

Our made-to-measure Premium™ Lymphoedema compression garments are prescribed by a clinician for the treatment and management of mild, moderate and severe lymphoedema. 

It does this by limiting lymph fluid build up and helping the fluid move to an area that is draining well. Jobskin® Premium™ lymphoedema compression garments also provide support to help muscles pump the fluid away. 

The correct selection of compression class, measuring and fitting will determine the outcome, comfort and compliance of the patient.

When to wear your Jobskin® Premium™ Lymphoedema garment

Please note

This Premium™ Lymphoedema garment has been expertly measured and designed for the user and must be worn by the user only. It must not be applied to anyone else.

It is important that someone who is experienced in measuring and fitting compression garments fits your garment such as your lymphoedema specialist, who may prescribe and fit you with a compression garment. Your GP can also prescribe garments, but usually only on the advice of your lymphoedema specialist.

It is the responsibility of the treating clinician to review your garment and advise when a new garment is required. It is also advised that garment should be checked by your clinician at least every 3 months for children and 4–6 months for adults to ensure fit and to review progress.

It is advisable that your compression garment is put on first thing in the morning after showering or bathing.

Wearing Schedule: 

  • For the best results, it is important to wear your compression garment all day. You can take it off in the following circumstances:

    • at night
    • when you are lying down and resting
    • when you are seated with your legs elevated
  • On the first day of wear the Premium™ Lymphoedema garment should be worn for a maximum of 3–4 hours at any one time
  • Once you have the compression garment in place, ensure it lays smoothly against your skin and feels snug but not painful
  • If after 3–4 hours on the first wearing there are no adverse reactions then gradually increase the wearing time until the minimum recommended wearing time of 6–8 hours is reached, removing them at bedtime
  • To obtain maximum benefit from the compression garment it is important that it is worn during waking hours only, as prescribed by a certified clinician (unless any adverse contra­in­di­cations are identified)
  • It is advised that the fit of the garment is reviewed on a regular basis by the clinician to make sure that the desired effect is being achieved

Donning your Jobskin® Premium™ Lymphoedema garment

Please follow the advice of your treating clinician before you wear this Premium™ Lymphoedema garment.

This device should be fitted and periodically checked by a suitably qualified person only

For all Premium™ Lymphoedema garments, please follow the standard instructions below before reading the specific donning instructions for your type of garment:

Donning and Doffing compression garments can be a little challenging at the start but they do stretch after a little wear. There are some general rules to live by that can assist with the garments as follows:

  • Read through the instructions for use, paying particular attention to Warnings and Precautions, and Additional Information regarding creams and oils, prior to donning your Premium™ Lymphoedema garment 
  • Ensure your hands are clean and you have no sharp fingernails or toenails that may damage the fabric, avoid sticking your fingernails into the fabric when pulling the garment on
  • Do not overstretch the material
  • Temporarily remove jewellery from hands, wrists and ankles if applicable, whilst donning and doffing your garment. Jewellery such as stone encrusted rings may snag your garment
  • Open all zips/fastenings
  • Use rubber gloves to help don and doff the garment
  • Watch for signs of discomfort and any change in hand/feet colour or temperature that may indicate problems with circulation. If this occurs remove the Premium™ Lymphoedema garment and contact your treating clinician

Fitting Instructions:

Lower Extremity Garments 

Check the label on your lymphoedema garment for left or right, starting with the garment inside out, tuck the foot portion inside up to the heel and hold with both hands, seam facing down. 

Pull it up over your foot past the ankle, it should now be right side out. Adjust the garment so that the heel is in place.

Waist High Garments 

Adjust your garment so that it is snug at your midsection. This will keep it from slipping down. Ensure you pull the midsection to its proper height.

Slip your hands palm out, into the back and lift away from your skin. Let it fall back to fit snugly over the buttocks.

Arm Sleeves 

Slip your hand through the entire sleeve keeping the seam in line with your little finger, ease the sleeve up your arm. It may be helpful to brace your hand against a wall. 

If a gauntlet is attached, the seam should run from palm to your hand, then curve over your elbow to your upper arm.

Indications

Management of lymphoedema and other oedema.

Contra­in­di­cations

Contra­in­di­cations are medical situations in which something should not be prescribed or recommended. If you have any of the following, compression garments may not be right for you.

  • Ischaemia (e.g. Advanced Arterial Disease)

Anyone with conditions that would normally require treatment with compression hosiery should be carefully assessed and monitored. Compression therapy should only be considered if the medical team decide that the benefits of compression will outweigh the risks.

Existing Medical Conditions

If you have not alerted your clinician to any of the conditions above, please DO NOT wear this garment until your clinician confirms it is safe to do so.

Additional Information

Please follow instructions provided by your treating clinician and wear as prescribed to achieve optimum results. You may have to seek help with donning and doffing your garment and your treating clinician should be made aware of this.

Although Jobskin® garments are resilient to most creams and oils, please note the following as some creams may damage the fabric, reduce the elasticity and the effectiveness of your pressure garment.

  • Avoid using creams containing wax, paraffin or petroleum
  • Use water or silicone-based moisturiser or cream

Always check garment and skin daily before use. Do not use if you have hyper­sen­sitivity or an allergic response to the garment materials. Please report to your treating clinician urgently. 

When re-applying your garment after bathing, creaming and massaging, make sure the skin is dry and no residue cream remains on the skin.

If wearing your garment whilst swimming, you must rinse out the chlorine or sea-salt immediately afterwards to preserve and protect the fabric.

Repairs and adjustments to your garment must be carried out by Jobskin® or a qualified healthcare professional. If you have any problems with your garment please contact your clinician as soon as possible.

Important: Please do not remove the silk label within your garment as the warranty will be void.

Washing Instructions

Please follow the washing instructions below to maintain the elasticity and longevity of your garment, a copy of which is printed on the silk label sewn into your garment. 

Wash your garment separately for the first time to avoid any colour run. Jobskin® recommend turning your garment inside out and fastening any zips prior to washing as this helps to protect and prolong the life of your garment.

TIP: Using a laundry bag inside your washing machine helps to protect your new garment.
