We are excited to introduce the OptiFlow® Comfort Sleeve (U.S. Patent 5,916,183). Several years in development and testing, this new sleeve is the ultimate in comfort and ease of application. It is lighter and cooler than the ReidSleeve® Classic while maintaining the original concept of the ReidSleeve Classic. Simply slip it on for the comforting and consistent pressure you have come to expect from the ReidSleeve Classic. Variable compression is obtained through a unique outer PowerSleeve®.

The ReidSleeve Classic has helped thousands of patients overcome lymphedema. As these patients achieved control of their lymphedema, we wanted a lighter and cooler sleeve to provide therapeutic maintenance. The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve achieves this objective. The custom unit construction provides a consistent snug fit and adjustable compression is obtained by the outer PowerSleeve. The PowerSleeve comes in several levels of compression, allowing the patient to adjust the pressure to the ideal level.

Tissue Gradient Technology

The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve is based on the ReidSleeve Tissue Gradient Technology (U.S. Patent 5,916,183). The foam insert provides both high and low pressure points. This patented design concept provides variable tissue pressure, maximizing compression while minimizing the obstruction of normal lymphatic flow. With older technologies, the pressure applied encircled and constricted normal lymphatic and venous flow. Our patented Tissue Gradient Technology prevents the generation of this constricting. This u nique system provides effective, comfortable compressive therapy for lymphedema.

Comfort and Results

The outer PowerSleeve is designed to overcome the friction that can build up between traditional garments and the skin. This friction can make it very difficult to apply traditional garments. However, this is overcome by the unique design of The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve and the materials that are designed to reduce the friction making it easier to slide The OptiFlow Comnfort Sleeve into proper position.

Many patients have mild lymphedema and do not require the full therapeutic compression provided by the ReidSleeve Classic. For these patients, The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve is ideal. The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve still provides the Tissue Gradient Technology of the ReidSleeve Classic but does so in a lighter and easier to use garment. Despite the fact that it is light and easy to use, many patients report significant reductions in their edema as a result of the use of The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve. Therefore, if your lymphedema is mild, The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve may be the ideal solution for your condition.

Many patients suffer mild to moderate edema after surgery such as axillary dissection or mastectomy or even with radiation treatment. These patients are finding that the OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve effectively controls their edema. The results have prompted many patients to comment that they felt that if they had used the OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve from the first signs of edema, they could have avoided developing more severe lymphedema.

The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve is also an ideal compliment to the ReidSleeve Classic. Many patients obtain additional therapeutic compression during the day by using the OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve. This allows these patients to maintain the results obtained with the ReidSleeve Classic and experience additional improvement. By coming at lymphedema from multiple angles, you can be successful in the fight to obtain lasting reduction.

The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve is also an effective compliment to CDT (complex decongestive therapy). The OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve can help the patient effectively maintain the edema reduction achieved through decongestive massage. Many therapists are now recommending the use of the OptiFlow Comfort Sleeve during periods between CDT.
