Lymphedema and Chronic Venous Insufficiency Resources
“I chose to work with Tactile Medical because I really believe the technology that they have in the pneumatic compression device is superior to any other product out on the market, which ultimately translates into the best outcomes for our patients.”
More than 20 million Americans suffer from chronic swelling due to lymphedema or chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).1
Lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) pose a unique set of challenges for clinicians and patients. Venous and lymphatic health are interdependent, with CVI often leading to lymphedema. There is currently no cure for these chronic, progressive conditions and, if left untreated, they can lead to cellulitis (recurrent infections), fibrosis (progressive hardening and thickening of the skin), decreased mobility and dexterity, and increased pain.
