Lower Extremity
Custom Made Garments

Lower Extremity

From the waist down, many accommodations can be made to account for different body shapes. These garments may extend up into the Upper Torso and/or include the foot as needed.

Increase or decrease pressure in parts of the garment to target affected body parts

As the lower torso can often have an unusual form due to various conditions, panels and pockets with inserts may be added in soft fabric to decrease pressure or reinforced to increase pressure in selected areas.

Seams may also be lined or reinforced to increase the comfort and durability of the garment.

Further adjustments can be made behind the knee and a foot can be attached to anchor the distal end of the garment.

Padded inserts in pockets for additional pressure

As pictured here, a pocket may be added to the interior aspect of the garment with a custom insert in foam or padding apply appropriate pressure to parts of the body. Pockets may be made in Silon-Tex® for scar management or our Hydro Lining for comfortable moisture wicking.


Options for the pubis

You have three options to choose from for the pubis area as follows:


  • Closed Pubis: Enclosed in our soft, moisture wicking Hydro Lining. A lateral zipper may be added to open up the side of the garment for ease of donning/doffing.
  • Open Pubis: Opening the pubis releases the pressure in that area and can provide an easier option for patients to use the bathroom.
  • Y-Front: The Y-Front may be in Hydro Lining or Powernet – depending if the patient requires additional pressure. The panels overlap to provide an opening that is secure and easy to access.

Proper laundering will preserve the condition of your patients garments for as long as possible. A new garment will maintain optimal levels of pressure for 3-6 months with considered laundering and care. After this time frame it is recommended to replace the garment if necessary.

We advise you to wash garments daily with the following instructions to receive the maximum benefit from your compression garment:

Hand Wash
1. Ensure all zips and velcro are done up
2. Gentle hand wash in warm water using mild detergent
3. Rinse in cold water and gently wring out
4. Place in a towel and roll the garment in it to remove excess water
5. Place garment flat in shade to dry

Machine Wash – front loader only
1. Ensure all zips and velcro are done up
2. Place garment in a delicates bag or pillow slip
3. Wash on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent
4. Place garment flat in shade to dry

See our fabrics page for a detailed breakdown of our fabrics and colours.

A new garment will maintain optimal levels of pressure for 3-6 months with considered laundering and care. After this time frame it is recommended to replace the garment if necessary. On top of the laundering guidelines set out above, we also advise you to educate your patients on proper donning and doffing techniques and to regularly review garments for effectiveness, wear and tear.

Our care instructions come at the advice of leading compression garment researchers as well as from the guidelines set out by our fabric manufacturers. You can be comfortable in knowing we have taken every step to ensure our garments can maintain optimal levels of pressure for as long as possible.
