I have Latex Allergies. What are Juzo garments made of?
All of our products are latex-free. We use high quality synthetic elastomers such as Elastin-Lycra and Polyamid-FiberSoft.
How often should I replace my garment?
With normal daily wear and care, we recommend replacing your garment every six months. Should your garment show signs of excessive wear or fit looser or tighter than when you originally purchased it, we recommend consulting with your fitter about being re-measured or replacing your garment sooner.
What does graduated compression mean?
In the stockings, the greatest compression begins at the ankle and decreases up the leg. For arm sleeves, the greatest compression begins at the wrist and decreases up the arm.
Can I use lotions and creams with your garments?
It’s perfectly safe to use lotions and creams with a Juzo brand compression garments because all Juzo garments are Latex-free. This is especially important for people with lymphedema since daily skin care and moisturizer is so important. Lotions and ointments breakdown garments made out of natural rubber.
Why is it okay to machine wash/dry Juzo compression garments?
Without daily machine laundering, your garment is more likely to stretch out, over time. Other brands can only be hand washed and hand dried. Because of Juzo’s garment features, all Juzo garments can be machine-washed and machine- dried on a low-heat setting.
Latex-free - Juzo only uses Lycra compression fibers. Lycra does not breakdown from heat and is the highest quality synthetic compression fiber.
FiberSoft - Our Lycra compression fibers are covered. This protects the garment and increases garment durability.
If my garment pills, can I use scissors or a razor to remove them?
Some people use a sweater razor to remove the pills. If it damages the garment the manufacturer warranty is voided. Be sure the garment is being laundered in a lingerie bag or a pillowcase. It is the friction of the sleeve against other fabrics that causes the pilling.
What is the difference between anti-embolism and graduated compression?
Anti-Embolism Stockings: Also known as TEDS. These stockings are intended for non-ambulatory patients or those confined to a bed or wheel chair. It is common in recovery rooms and post surgery for physicians to prescribe these stockings for patients to prevent coagulation (thrombosis) and stimulate blood flow. They are white and a thicker knit with an opening at the toes. Anti-embolism stockings have a universal compression throughout ranging from 8-18mmHg.
Graduated Compression Stockings: These stockings are medically therapeutic and designed for people who are mobile. They work with a graduated effect, providing 100% compression at the most distal point, being the ankle and decreasing up the leg. The compression is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). Graduated compression stockings are manufactured in compression ranges: 12-20mmHg, 20-30mmHg, 30-40mmHg, 40-50mmHg, and 50+mmHg.
Graduated compression stockings coincide with specific medical indications. Stockings below 20mmHg are available over-the-counter (OTC) and compression levels above 20mmHg require a medical prescription.
