Living with lymphedema can be challenging both physically and emotionally. This condition can cause decreased mobility, pain, self-consciousness, and depression. At Martin Medical, we strive to find individualized solutions to improve our patients' overall quality of life. With a physician's referral, we will begin the process of finding the best treatment options that focus on the therapeutic value of compression. Our experience in the field of lymphedema for over twelve years has resulted in our providers having extensive knowledge of the very best compression products. Our goals are to teach our patients how to manage their conditions by providing solutions tailored to each individual's needs. We pride ourselves on finding an appropriate treatment program for everyone.
The swelling and edema associated with lymphedema can be the result of damaged lymph nodes or lymphatic vessels. Often this condition results from surgery or radiation in the case of secondary lymphedema, or as a cause of a congenital abnormality that results in decreased lymphatic function. Primary and secondary lymphedema often lead to protein accumulation in the interstitial tissue. These conditions become most apparent in the arms and legs. The limbs can become fibrotic and can be prone to infection.
Martin Medical carries various pneumatic compression devices. Compression pumps with calibrated gradient pressure have proven to be the best devices for reducing the lymphatic fluid from the limb in a comfortable and efficient manner. Martin Medical nurses are the only Pacific Northwest technicians certified to distribute the multi-compartmental, calibrated, gradient pressure system, Lymphapress. We also provide a gradient, sequential pneumatic compression pump, the Bio Compression Sequential Circulator.
Martin Medical specializes in breast prostheses and post-surgical bras.
Martin Medical also carries a wide selection of elastic compression garments and non-elastic compression products. Graduated elastic garments are best for day use, working to maintain a reduced limb while the person remains active. Martin Medical can measure and fit patients for elastic arm sleeves, gauntlets, and gloves, and compression stockings from top manufacturers such as Jobst, Juzo, Mediven, and Sigvaris. For day or night, using non-elastic compression products can provide comfortable management of lymphedema. Martin Medical proudly offers non-elastic products by CircAid, ReidSleeve and JoviPak.
