anyone tried the Jobst Relax nighttime garment? Looks a lot more comfortable than the oven mitt.


I'm tired of the heat and humidity, if being bandaged and unable to do much.

Hi, Zillsnot,

Thanks for the link--interesting! I haven't tried it, but found this review of the leg garment that gives an idea of the wearability of it:


Available from Bandages Plus (and probably other on-line suppliers), but the cost is around $590, and it's custom so has to be measured by your therapist or regular LE fitter.

Still, looks promising!
