In various conditions the patients require application of compression on the arms or hands. The indications may vary from Post Mastectomy Lymphoedema to Post Burns Hypertrophic Scarring. The patients may require different types of compression depending on the indications. In the cases of Post Burns Hypertrophic Scarring or Grafting the patient may require Fore Arms or Full Arms, the suitable designs for Post Mastectomy Lymphoedema include Shoulder Flaps.
In cases of Post Mastectomy Lymphoedema the garments may initially go loose after 10-15 days as the oedema reduces. For such cases NORMA offers the facility of Progressive Correction. It means that the compression in the same garments can be increased as per the new, reduced measurements of the patient. This can be done only within the effective medical life of the garments.
Gloves are used for application of compression on the hands. They are used along with Arm Sleeves for the cases of Post Mastectomy Lymphoedema for avoiding distal oedema. The patient can conveniently remove them for doing household chores without while keeping the arm under compression. This may be done for a very small duration only.
The palmer side has a zipper which makes it very convenient to put on the gloves. The zipper can be fixed on the dorsal side also but should be avoided unless and until it is absolutely essential.
In the Post Burns Hypertrophic Scarring cases they may be used alone or in conjunction with other garments depending on the affected area.
