A compression sleeve for lymphedema is a tube-shaped elasticized garment that a person wears on the arm. By putting pressure on the arm, it keeps lymph flowing through the lymphatic system.
- Lymphoedema sleeves apply pressure to the arm to keep lymphatic fluid flowing in the right direction up the arm.
- Sleeves are tighter at the wrist and looser up the arm.
- This creates a pressure gradient to help the flow of lymph upwards.
