BrightLife Direct Introduces 3 New Lymphedema Product Lines
Date:5/5/2011

WASHINGTON, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BrightLife Direct, a compression clothing distributor, recently added three new lymphedema products to its inventory. Products by Farrow Medical, Solaris and Gottfried are now available online through the Washington, DC-based company.

These compression garments are used in lymphedema treatment. Lymphedema is a medical condition that involves swelling of the arms, legs or hands. Although it can be caused by a genetic condition, it is often caused by lymph node removal after breast cancer surgery. Statistics show that up to 50 percent of breast cancer survivors develop lymphedema. About 32 percent have persistent swelling three years after surgery. While there is no cure for this condition, lymphedema can be managed with the use of compression sleeves, gloves, stockings and wraps.

"We have received requests from therapists for hard-to-find products, so we are trying to address that need," said Kip Bright, president of BrightLife Direct. "We want to be a resource for patients and therapists who need these compression garments."

BrightLife Direct will begin carrying jobst bandages over the next few months. These are long-stretch and short-stretch bandages which accommodate patients during different stages of their treatment. The FarrowWrap resembles a sports brace and has adjustable hook and loop closures. The Farrow Microfine glove is another new addition to BrightLifeDirect's inventory. It is made of more lightweight material than other types of compression gloves, allowing for more hand flexibility.

BrightLife Direct also carries Swell Spots, manufactured by Solaris, Inc. Swell Spot is typically placed under clothing, bandaging, or a compression garment to gently massage the underlying tissue and break up problem areas of swelling.

Gottfried Medical makes custom compression garments for all parts of the body. These reasonably priced garments are custom ordered to meet the specific needs of the patient, making them more comfortable to wear.
