Caresia bandage liners replace stockinette and multiple layers of padding and foam, making the bandaging process much simpler and faster. The foam chips in Caresia stimulates the tissue, encouraging re-absorption of interstitial fluids to reduce swelling.
Don the Caresia liner, and with short stretch bandages, use a spiral or figure-eight wrapping style with 50% overlap. Bandages should be snug, but not tight. Caresia is designed to disperse irregular bandage pressure, creating a uniform symmetrical shape to the limb. It pads boney parts, and fills in concave spaces, compensating for anatomical differences without impairing gradient compression.
Caresia Arm Liner provides coverage from the Axilla to the knuckles (MCPs). Measure the circumference of the palm, wrist, and largest part of bicep. Tape should be snug, bug not constricting. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size to accommodate a reduction in swelling. Made in USA from meryl, lycra and polyurethane.

Lymphedema Arm Bandage, January 5, 2018 By Anonymous (Norwich, OH)(Verified)
My mother has had lymphedema since 2005 and was not aware of the bandage liner. A physical therapist recently treated her and suggested using the bandage liner overnight while not wearing her traditional lymphedema sleeve and glove. She has been using it just as it comes and feeling an improvement with this new addition to her continuing treatment.
Great product, May 27, 2014 By Laura G (New Milford, CT)
If you suffer from lymphedema and are looking for relief, this is a great product. My therapist suggested wearing it at night while I slept. I did this for 3 years and as my lymphedema has gotten worse I now wear it during the day when I can and combine it with bandaging. It definitely helps in moving the fluid from my arm. So far, it's the best product I've found, but you do need to be willing to use it and get over the fact that it's not attractive. People always ask what's wrong with my arm, but I'm ok with that. It's good to educate people about this condition.
