Compression therapy for a better quality of life
Impaired drainage in the lymphatic system may cause swelling and edema, which puts pressure on the tissue and can cause inflammation and damage to the skin. Manual lymph drainage (MLD) and compression therapy help decongesting the tissue and prevent conditions such as lymphedema and lipedema from progressing further. The custom-made flat knit VenoTrain curaflow range of products is designed to optimally fit the individual shape of each patient's legs, arms, hands or chest (thorax). The garments provide the appropriate compression that is required and offer patients unique benefits in terms of wearing comfort which is especially important in long-term therapy.

Effective down to the last detail
The fine double-stretch knit of VenoTrain curaflow garments exerts a consistent level of working pressure during movement. This pressure is essential for the therapy to be effective, as constant compression of the tissue improves the transportation of the lymphatic fluid. Valves in the vessels close more effectively, swelling and edema is distributed over a larger area, less fluid penetrates the tissue and less fluid is left behind in the tissue too. The longitudinal structure on the inside of the garment forms transportation channels to promote optimum lymph drainage, thus aiding the therapeutic effect.
No two bodies are the same and changes in the lymphatic system can have very different effects on a person's body shape. Individual, made-to-measure garments are therefore preferred for best possible therapy. VenoTrain curaflow garments are custom-made for each individual. They are available in a variety of special shapes for the legs, arms/hands and even the thorax. The range covers four compression classes, three colors and guarantees the optimal degree of working pressure for the treatment of Lymphedema and Lipedema.
The patient-friendly design of the VenoTrain curaflow garments helps users to put their recommended therapy into practice by wearing them routinely. The latex-free elastic double-stretch knit is easy to put on and take off. A uniquely soft surface and excellent breathability is provided through a high microfiber content. Flat, sensitive stitching prevents wrinkling and the development of pressure points. The sensitive chest area is completely seamless. All leg products feature an extra-soft area behind the knee for problem-free mobility in everyday life.
Special comfort zones take into account the patient's individual anatomy. For example, the laterally inclined edging on the knee-high and thigh-high stockings prevent the leg tissue from bulging over the top. Stockings with a pronounced heel area for extra foot comfort are designed for people who spend the majority of their time sitting.
