Aim Lymphoedema is associated with dysfunctional lymphatics, tissue fibrosis and inflammatory changes in the skin and local tissue. Ensuring compression supports tissue health is crucial to managing lymphoedema. Providing patients with safe compression which enhances their tissue health is paramount when supporting their 24-hour self-management reg...
Article
Objective: Compression devices have been shown to reduce venous stasis, increase blood flow and skin tissue oxygenation (StO2), promoting healthy tissue. This study aimed to explore the efficacy of a new compression garment in three different positions in healthy adults. Methods: In this quantitative study, potential participants were screened an...

Introduction: Compression systems such as bandaging, compression stockings and self-adjustable wrap systems aim to correct venous insufficiency by counteracting the force of gravity, increasing cutaneous pressure. Compression therapy has been shown to increase the efficacy and effectiveness of both the lymphatic and venous system in moving fluid. C...

Introduction: Lymphoedema is associated with dysfunctional lymphatics, tissue fibrosis and inflammatory changes in the skin and local tissue. Oxygen is an essential substrate required to supply the amount of energy required for tissue renewal. Providing patients with safe compression which also enhances their tissue health is paramount when support...

Clinical assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions of different joints may be broken down into considerations of Pain, Alignment, Strength and Stability (PASS). In recent years these factors have allowed a systematic approach and has enabled the development in our understanding of clinical subgroups, which enable targeted or stratifie...
