Clearwater, FL – July 13, 2017 – The new EXTREMIT-EASE™ Compression Garment by AMERX Health Care has been named one of this year's Top 10 Innovations by Podiatry Today – a leading industry publication.

Among the reasons for inclusion in the industry's most notable advancements is the garment's unique combination of a zipper and bungee cords with large tabs, allowing patients to easily and independently apply and adjust the garment. The ease of application and adjustment is expected to increase compliance rates and help reduce the recurrence rates of venous leg ulcers.

"EXTREMIT-EASE™ is a 'game changer'," said Dr. Jeff Lehrman, DPM, FASPS, and Fellow of the American Academy of Podiatric Practice Management (AAPPM). "It provides a huge advantage over traditional compression garments."

Introduced to the market in April 2017, EXTREMIT-EASE™ offers 30-50 mmHg of therapeutic compression with the combined benefits of short- and long-stretch compression. The lightweight, air-permeable, latex-free fabric found in the EXTREMIT-EASE™ Compression Garment allows for up to 12 hours of comfortable wear with less sweat, hot spots, and pistoning. EXTREMIT-EASE™ is PDAC-approved and available in regular and tall lengths for all sizes from extra small to extra large.
