How It Works
This is the only technology specifically designed to apply effective pressure to the skin, subcutaneous tissue and connective tissue of the deep dermis (the areas where the Oedema can accumulate and where fibrosis can build up). That is why the high and low pressure exerted by our products is such an effective method for treating Lymphoedema.
The technology works by applying high and low pressure points to the affected area. The high points force excess fluid into the area of low points, forming channels for which the lymphatic fluid can be removed naturally through the lymphatic and venous system. Flat compression garments constricts the affected area, often causing the lymphatic system to obstruct further.
(Please see images below of restrictions and damage caused by conventional compression garments)
This concept is so unique that it was awarded a patent by the U.S., Canadian and Australian Governments.
The red dots on the images below are the highs and lows, (negative and positive pressure), made from the inner lining reducing the fibrous, thickened tissue and creating lymph channels for the fluid to move through easily.
Images below are the result of wearing the incorrect garment which are causing further damage to the limb.

Testimonial for the pictures below.
"I first came to Kristin Osborn for my leg in late March 2019.My leg was very swollen following the onset of a severe case of cellulitis caused by previously undiagnosed lymphoedema. Under Kristin's management utilising both a Reid sleeve and boot, my lower leg has decreased in size by 12 cm. Kristin is very knowledgeable regarding the treatment of lymphoedema and the associated fields of general well-being, nutrition and weight loss and I recommend her services to those in need of such attention". Allan.
The first two pictures below are of the damaged limbs, particularly the left, at the first appointment. You will notice some sores that had developed on the skin from previous infections, the redness and the shininess of the skin from being constantly stretched.
The last two pictures are what the limbs look like now utilising the Reid Sleeve leg and boot. Notice the colour of the skin, the redness has reduced, the shininess gone and the limb significantly smaller.
Reid Sleeve Compression Garments are healing garments, they help to heal the limbs and the skin, not just squash and tourniquet like most garments on the market and they are fully adjustable so he hasn't needed to purchase another garment because his limb size decreased, this holds them as the most superior garment on the market unlike any other garment available world wide.
After many years of suffering with swollen legs and being told I have growing pains etc when much younger, what a relief to find someone like Kristin who immediately set me on the right path. Drs didn't have a clue. Apart from all her valued knowledge of the disease and willing to pass on information but also the discovery of the Reid Sleeve has been invaluable. Thank you. This garment works like magic. To have something that fits so easily, is adjustable it to me out weighs all other products available. AND affordable. Thank you Kristin for being able to supply the "Reid Sleeve" here in Australia for an affordable price for something that should last many years before it needs replacing. Long live the Reid Sleeve. Also thank you for helping me get my legs moving once again!! Rachel
