Lymphedema

Lymphedema occurs when the lymph system is damaged or blocked, causing localized fluid retention and swelling in soft body tissues. Though fairly common (150 to 250 million people affected worldwide), lymphedema is a distressing, often debilitating condition that causes a significant amount of pain and discomfort. Compression bandages or garments can be applied to prevent the fluids from flowing back into the affected area. SME, Inc. USA offers a wide variety of specialized options for specific lymphedema compression treatment objectives including tubular bandages, non-woven padding bandages, orthopedic felt, foam rubber bandages, conforming stretch bandages, wound care dressings and compression garments.
