Clearwater, FL – May 3, 2017 – Attendees of the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring Conference received a first look at the new EXTREMIT-EASE™ Compression Garment - an innovative, easy-to-use approach to compression. Developed by AMERX Health Care, EXTREMIT-EASE™ offers 30-50mmHg of compression with the combined benefits of short- and long-stretch compression.
The benefits of compression for healing venous leg ulcers and reducing recurrence rates have been well-documented in medical literature, but oftentimes lack of compliance hinders the healing process. The unique features of EXTREMIT-EASE™ are expected to increase compression compliance, reduce edema in patients, and improve wound care outcomes.
A combination of a zipper and bungee cords with large tabs makes application and adjustment of the garment simple for patients, even those with dexterity issues. The design of EXTREMIT-EASE™ allows for easy deactivation of the garment when patients want to relax in a reclined position, and its lightweight, air-permeable, latex-free fabric allows for up to 12 hours of comfortable wear with less sweat, hot spots, and pistoning.
PDAC-approved EXTREMIT-EASE™ is available in regular and tall lengths for all sizes from extra small to extra-large, and free shipping and handling is available for all prescriptions.
Wound care professionals interested in more information about EXTREMIT-EASE™ can contact their AMERX Health Care representative at 800-448-9599 or visit www.amerxhc.com/extremit-ease for more information.
