Uniform (Even) Pressure

Custom compression garments designed for severe injuries resulting from burns and postsurgical complications help to control hypertrophic scarring, burn contracture and keloids. Also, they help return the affected area to its pre-trauma size. These garments are designed to exert uniform (even) pressure from the distal end to the proximal end.

Benefits to the Patient

Gottfried brand custom compression garments for hypertrophic scars, burn contractures, keloid and other postsurgical complications are manufactured for an anatomically exact fit. Because they are custom made they can increase compliance as a result of options and extras that ease donning, doffing and reducing the discomfort associated with normal wear. Numerous options are available and special requirements are easily accommodated.

Why a Prescription is Required

Custom compression garments for the treatment of severe injuries resulting from burns and postsurgical complications from Gottfried Medical are designed to provide significantly higher compression than is found in common OTC retail products. As a result, they are not available without a prescription.
