Better Fitting Custom Garments with New Lymphedema Scanning Technology Delivers Enhanced Treatment Results

Sunday, February 9, 2020 ~ 3:00PM - 4:30PM

The use of new scanning lymphedema technology has been found to deliver consistently better fit custom garments to produce enhanced therapeutic results through greater patient compliance and compression accuracy. The technology provides a better patient experience, reduces delivery time of garment, and improved communication throughout the process. This workshop will review the treatment process for lymphedema and the role of compression therapy garments with an introductory hands-on section on the use of scanning technology.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand the progression characteristics and the stages of lymphedema.
- Discuss how to identify proper garment selection according to the stage of lymphedema.
- Demonstrate how to measure patients with scanning device and process into a complete order.

CEUs:
This session has been approved for 1.5 Scientific credits through the Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) and 1.5 Category I Scientific credits through the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABC).
