Self-care compression therapy - In actual practice
Moving patients to self-care is the key objective in the management of chronic conditions and our compression portfolio can support patients and clinicians throughout their entire treatment journeys. By identifying and offering support in addressing Home Care Professionals and patient needs throughout this journey, we offer you support. The ability to self-care is empowering! When it fits with the patient's lifestyle and is easy to apply. Let's listen to HCP and their experiences:
Ellen's story (Skin and Oedema Therapist)
We're always under pressure to find the right treatment at the lowest possible cost and that's why involving the patient in their treatment plan is so important. ReadyWrap® is so easy for our patients to use that it aids our clinic to reduce the number of treatment sessions from 3 to 2 per week, it also helps cut treatment times by half, in comparison to traditional bandaging. This means that patients can regain their independence, while we keep costs under control.
Robert's story (Community Nurse)
When I am applying compression therapy for patients with lymphoedema and venous oedema, I sometimes need to visit a patient two or three times a week, which just isn't cost-effective. We recently trialled the ReadyWrap® compression device to see if we could save time and increase efficiencies. We managed to reduce nursing time and also reduce the swelling so much that my patient could wear his boots and get back on his bike again. A great outcome for everyone.
Margaret's story (Primary Carer)
My husband developed leg ulcers after an accident left him paralysed and doctors said they may have to amputate. He had incredibly low self-esteem and was housebound. Our lives were put on hold. That's when I decided to become fully involved in John's care. Our Nurse Specialist recommended using a ReadyWrap® for his compression and we saw an incredible difference. John's wounds have almost healed and he's back in the garden again. His confidence has returned and I've got my husband back.
