What is lymphedema?
Lymphedema is a disorder of the lymphatic system, affecting some or all of it. When it occurs, the body is not able to process the normal waste build up in the tissue around the feet, legs, arms and other parts of the body, leading to fluid building up under the skin. This starts off with some swelling and discomfort, but can progress to distinctive swelling and pain, putting you at risk of infection and reduced mobility.
What makes these products better than others?
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles. Using the highest quality materials to construct decades-refined products that have been clinically proven to address a vast range of issues. There's no substitute for quality, and Bauerfeind have that from the simplest strap to the largest brace.
How long do they last?
Bauerfeind's high quality construction and design mean that all of our products go the distance, especially when cared for properly. Below is a rough outline of how long products last before they start to lose their effectiveness over time.
Compression Stockings - 6 to 9 months of daily wear
Braces & supports - 1 to two years of daily wear

It's important to note that this is a rough guideline, and each person's usage and general care can change the longevity of the product either way
