Notes from our Certified Fitters:
Always contact your physician and or therapist to determine the correct compression strength for your condition. Sigvaris compression garments should be replaced after six months of normal wear. They start losing their effectiveness after that time. If they seem to be getting looser, than you are not receiving the maximum benefits of their compression strength.
Part of one of the largest variety of compression stockings in the industry, Sigvaris provides products that are ideal for every lifestyle and specialized need.
The 910 Advance Armsleeve was developed by Sigvaris with the help of patients and clinicians to create a garment that meets medical efficacy standards and exceeds expectations. Compression garments have long been used in the treatment of lymphedema, but in the past, patients struggled with compliance due to lack of comfort and improper fit. With comfort in mind...The SIGVARIS Research and Development team has created a new product that ensures compliance and patient comfort. In fact, itÍs already been very well received in other countries around the world. The ADVANCE Armsleeve combines the latest fabric technologies with a breathable top band for enhanced comfort making it a leading treatment choice for patients with lymphedema worldwide.
Indications for Use:
It is recommended that you mark the arm with a non-permanent, non-toxic marker at each circumference measurement made.

The lymphatic system is highly complex and, when functioning, moves approximately three liters of fluid throughout the body every day. This is done through a channel of vessels as part of the blood flow's cleaning and filtering system. This system may become compromised due to treatments for cancer, surgery, injury, trauma and other causes. When this system is compromised, an accumulation of lymph fluid develops in the soft tissues and swelling occurs, most often in the extremities. This is known as Lymphedema.
Lymphedema should not be confused with edema that is a result of venous insufficiency. It's important to be aware that untreated venous insufficiency can progress into a combined venous/lymphatic disorder. The treatment for this is the same as lymphedema.
Symptoms of Arm Lymphedema
NOTE: If you experience any of these symptoms, it is very important that you seek immediate medical advice as early diagnosis and treatment improves both the prognosis and the condition.
Risk Factors for Lymphedema
The Use of Compression in Treatment
When lymphedema presents, excess fluid builds in the arm. This buildup of fluid is known as edema (sometimes called congestion). There are a number of ways to decongest this fluid build-up, including a massage technique known as Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), the use of intermittent pneumatic compression pumps, wrapping with short stretch bandages and/or wearing a graduated compression garment.
Once the limb has been reduced of fluid build-up, wearing the Sigvaris Advance Armsleeve is recommended to maintain the reduction. Compression not only improves circulation, but also aids in the upward flow of the lymphatic and venous system. This blood flow is recirculating back toward your lungs and heart causing your system to function as it did prior to having lymphedema. Lymphedema is a chronic condition that is not curable at present, but may be alleviated by appropriate management; if not treated it can progress and become difficult to manage.

We recommend that donning gloves always be worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression hose. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the garment. Other people prefer to use a donning aid like the Juzo Slippie Gator or Jobst Stocking Donner.
We also recommend either Sigvaris, Juzo, or Jobst Jolastic Special Washing Solutions for maintaining the quality of compression garments. Jobst Jolastic Wash is formulated to remove oil, body acids, and skin salts quickly and easily without damage to the fabric. This specially designed solution will help extend the life of all elastic garments. The ingredients in Jobst ensure excellent soil removal and are mild to the user's hands.
