JOBST Moisture Management Technology
JOBST compression garments are constructed out of special fiber combinations that offer optimized moisture management and help your skin feeling dry, cool, and comfortable.
Tips and tricks for hot summer days
On the one hand, hot weather can impair your lymphedema and lipedema symptoms because heat dilates your vessels and causes additional swelling. On the other hand, it can be hard to wear your garments in summer. But there are a few things you can do to cool down.
You can cool your garments in the fridge before putting them on. In addition, you can discuss the option of knee-high garments or open-toe garments with your healthcare professional (HCP).
Feeling comfortable while wearing compression is especially important while traveling or when you want to go out. Have a look at our Blog section about “Travelling and Going out” with lymphedema or lipedema to share your experience with others.

Tips and tricks for exercise and movement
Regular exercise and movement can improve your lymphedema and lipedema symptoms. You should always wear your garments when you exercise. One exception is training in water because this would damage the material of your compression garments.
The new JOBST Confidence has been designed for those who love to move freely. Thanks to its innovative double layer moisture management construction to improve evaporation of perspiration (sweat), you can also wear it during exercise*.
