The Marena Group, a leading provider of medical-grade compression garments, has launched a groundbreaking product designed specifically to assist patients recovering from lipedema reduction surgery. This new compression garment features the innovative FlexFit Comfort Ankle™, a unique foot construction with gliding compression panels, that allows for improved lymphatic drainage, blood flow, and mobility at the ankle. This feature is crucial when it comes to comfort and pain management during the recovery process.
Lipedema, also known as painful fat syndrome, is a chronic condition characterized by an abnormal accumulation of fat cells in the legs and lower body, resulting in pain, swelling, and disproportionate lower extremities in later stages. This condition affects 1 in 9 women and is normally triggered by a change in hormones during puberty, pregnancy, and sometimes menopause. This condition can be genetic as well. In the earlier stages of Lipedema, it is common for women to confuse lipedema with cellulite.
Many patients diagnosed with lipedema undergo surgical interventions, such as liposuction or lymphatic sparing liposuction, to alleviate symptoms and improve their quality of life. The Marena Group, understanding the challenges faced by individuals recovering from lipedema reduction surgery, tailored the compression garment to address these patient’s pain points.
In addition to the FlexFit Comfort Ankle™, the new lipedema garment features Marena’s proprietary TriFlex Fabric™, which is known for its recovery benefits after liposuction in the post-surgical market. It contains features such as 3D stretch, moisture wicking and cooling properties, silhouette forming capabilities, and antimicrobial properties to ensure ultimate comfort, compliance, and results.
"The Marena Group is patient centric and always looking for new innovative ways to improve the recovery experience and surgical results," said Linda Burhance, Chief Product Officer, at The Marena Group. "We understand the physical and emotional challenges faced by individuals with lipedema, and our mission is to provide them with innovative solutions that enhance their comfort and aid in the healing process. We believe the combination of our TriFlex™ fabric and FlexFit Comfort Ankle™ does just that."
