SilverSeal X-Static Component is a non-compressive tubular bandage. It's used as the first layer under wrapping, and acts as a protective barrier between the skin and short-stretch bandages. It can also be worn under night wear garments like Tribute or JoVi Pak.
With an impaired lymphatic system, there is an increased risk of skin conditions and infections. Scratches and cracks in the skin allow bacteria to enter the body, which can lead to cellulitis or lymphangitis. Silver is naturally antimicrobial, and eliminates potentially harmful bacteria. Silver is also one of the most thermally conductive elements on the planet, so it dissipates heat very quickly to keep you cool. It's also very efficient at wicking moisture from the skin.
SilverSeal X-Static Tubular is made from 90% cotton and 10% X-Static fibers, is reusable, and washable.
Available in four diameters: 2, 3, 4, and 6 inches
Packaged in 25 yard rolls, BrightLife also offers cut lengths of 1, 2, and 3 yards
This works good to have between my leg and my farrow wrap. I do not know if the silver helps with keeping down the potential for infection but studies show that it does so I will keep using. I ordered the six inch size because I have a very large calf but even so it was too big so order a size smaller when you get this
Silver stockinette, August 9, 2013 By Anonymous (Eugene, OR)
After two episodes of cellulitis in my lymphedema arm, my therapist recommends this product. It is no different in texture, comfort, feel, or washing ease than regular stockinette. I am hopeful the silver in the fabric will prevent future infections.
