Hello my dear fellow campaigners! I want you guys today JOBST® Imagine Relax. This stocking changed my life. When my Sani-Fee told me about the night stocking for the first time, my first thought was: You're not serious!
Not another thing ...
It was boiling hot in summer and we were standing in the locker room of my trusted medical supply store. Well, it's actually one Corsetterie - sounds a lot better too, I think. My Sani-Fee is affected by lipedema herself. Well, so we stood there in this super sexy position - me half naked, her with a pen and tape measure in front of me. You know that. So she reported about this night stocking and an absolute horror movie was playing in my head. Have you been in Kompri all day and then wearing one at night? Yes, thank you very much! For now I left it with the information and was happy when I was able to dive into the cool water of the sponge bath.
Does it really have to be?
A few days and weeks passed, but the mind regularly revolved around the JOBST® Relax I know my Sani-Fee very well and she really always did a great job. Hmm, should I dare? I belong to the group of people with lip and lymphedema and I always had the problem that my fingers and hands were fat in the morning. The legs were not as slim and soft as many others. That annoyed me a lot. Although that subsided during the time I was getting ready, it was still stupid.
So I told her again about my problem and then immediately the allusion to the JOBST came from her® Relax Then I went to my family doctor and had the stocking written down. I was very lucky because my crane class approved my stockings.
JOBST® Relax - life change and facts
Product description: JOBST® Relax are medical products for the treatment of edema and lymphedema of the upper and lower extremities. JOBST® Relax is to be worn during rest periods, i.e. while sleeping or while relaxing, and helps to maintain the therapeutic success achieved through the daily treatment of lymphedema.
Indication and purpose of use: JOBST® Relax can be used during rest periods as a complementary compression garment to the recommended daily lymph therapy for primary or secondary lymphedema. After reducing the volume of edema during the decongestion phase, JOBST helps® Relax to keep the swelling low during the rest phases and to maintain the shape of the extremity, which also makes the use of daytime compression easier.
Care and cleaning: The JOBST® Relax can be machine washed at 30 degrees and can even be tumble dried. Please note the exact information in the instructions for use.
Well, how is it now, this "magic stocking"?
The JOBST® Relax is currently available in two colors, skin color and pink. I chose Rosa, of course, what a question. It arrives in a really nice satin pouch and doesn't look as frighteningly medical as feared. The moving material has many small chambers that you can feel and move with your fingers. These chambers massage the leg permanently, so to speak, and you can almost compare it to a lymphatic drainage. This ensures the optimal removal of the liquid. You can feel and see that in the morning. Fat hands are also a thing of the past.
So far so good, try it on first. It looks rather coarse and stiff but hardly dressed, you get the feeling of being wrapped in a cloud. It is so incredibly comfortable and delicate that you can hardly feel it. My model goes down to the knee and has no zipper. There are different options, the best thing to do is to get advice from your medical supply store. Whether worn solo or even with compression over it. I can no longer imagine what it was like without him. Well, now of course the summer remains to be seen 🙂
