Compression Challenges in Lipoedema: introducing Haddenham Grace (Sponsored by Haddenham)

Thursday, June 10, 2021 11:30 - 12:00

This session begins with a review of what lipoedema is, how it presents and the possible management options.

The problems encountered by people with lipoedema will be explored, with a particular focus on the problems commonly experienced with compression. Lymphoedema specialists will be well-aware of the difficulties faced with the fitting, efficacy and comfort of compression hosiery for patients with lipoedema, and how concordance, and hence a successful outcome, can be poorly affected by these issues.  

The Haddenham Grace range of compression will be introduced, as a new innovative garment especially designed and manufactured to meet the compression needs of patients with lipoedema.
