dc.description.abstractCompression therapy is a key component in the effective management of people with lower limb problems associated with venous, lymphatic and fat disorders such as lipoedema. Individuals with lymphoedema, venous ulceration and lipoedema often require long-term compression therapy to prevent and manage problems such as chronic ulceration and skin changes, persistent swelling and shape distortion. There are challenges in achieving acceptable, safe, effective and cost-efficient compression therapy choices. Adjustable, compression-wrap devices incorporating hook-and-loop systems present new opportunities for improving treatment outcomes, supporting patient independence and self-management in the use of compression therapy.
