Features of Medi CircAid Juxta-Lite Compression Standard Legging™:
History: Hertha Shaw suffered from worsening lymphedema for many years, requiring her to rest and elevate her leg every few hours. Her husband, Frank, was an engineer and inventor and determined to find a way to help his wife. The result was the first patented CircAid legging (short for circulation aid). It literally put his wife back on her feet to resume a normal, active life. This core technology would evolve in today's CircAid Medical Products.
For those suffering from lymphedema or venous diseases, compression therapy helps to restore a normal, active life. Compression stockings may be especially difficult to manage for the person who lacks the strength or dexterity to pull them on or tolerate any compression discomfort that may be present.
Medi CircAid® offers an alternative to compression stockings with the Juxta-Lite™. Features include:
Clinically proven Juxta-Lite™ does not lose effectiveness and maintains consistent compression throughout the entire life of the garment. Inelasticity with higher working pressures lead to improved results:
Juxta-Lite™ has the ability to be set to three compression levels: 20-30, 30-40, or 40-50mmHg. The Built-In Pressure System™ (BPS™) allows the setting of the compression level each time the legging is donned. Juxta-Lite™ is designed so that the inelastic compression does not lose integrity over the life of the garment.
Consistent inelastic compression is key to healing venous stasis ulcers, reducing ulcer recurrence, and reducing edema.
The patented Juxta-Lock™ Band System allows for the easy application and adjustment to assure the appropriate compression level.
Only two circumference measurements required: ankle and calf.
One length measurement: from floor to knee crease
Be standing when taking measurements. Limbs should be at their smallest; limb size should be maintained at time of measurements to assure a proper fit of garment.
It is best to hand wash and drip dry your CircAid® compression garments in order to extend their life. However, it is safe to machine wash your Juxta-Lite™ on a gentle cycle and dry using a low heat setting. If doing so with other clothing, it is also recommended to put your Juxta-Lite™ into a pillow case to prevent the Velcro® from damaging any other clothes and to aid in keeping it free from lint.
If the legging feels too tight what do I do?
Re-check the bands with the Pressure Guide card to assure that it is tightened to the prescribed pressure range. If the bands are adjusted to the appropriate level and the garment still feels too tight, consult your physician about your prescribed pressure range. The Juxta-Lite™ should never hurt. It should feel firm but comfortable. If you experience any pain, remove it and contact your physician immediately.
Can I cut bands off or cut down the Juxta-Lite™?
No. The Juxta-Lite™ is not designed to be cut or modified in any way except for the foot length and ankle-band which are illustrated in the "Directions For Use". Making cuts anywhere else on the garment will void the warranty.
Please be certain to contact your physician or therapist prior to starting any new compression therapy.
