This month, we would like to focus our enews on one of our most popular garment lines, the Comfort™. Recently, we have been receiving a lot of questions regarding our Comfort line, so we figured we would take this opportunity to give all of our eNews readers some further information regarding the Comfort and its history.
Developed and introduced by Dr. Tony Reid, the Comfort was introduced in the late 1990's. Peninsula BioMedical was the first garment manufacturer to develop a compression sleeve that featured an inner foam liner which incorporated an outer sleeve to provide compression, called the PowerSleeve. The Comfort foam liner utilizes our patented Tissue Gradient Technology™, developed for the original ReidSleeve® Classic, but made with a lighter-weight foam and no straps. This made for a lighter, cooler compression sleeve with an additional ease of application, while still maintaining the effectiveness of the Tissue Gradient Technology. In fact, Penrose Hospital released an independent clinical study of the Comfort in 2002 with fantastic results. Read the study results here, please take note at the time the Comfort was named the Contour, the name has changed but product remains the same.
The Comfort sleeve has long been praised for its design features, but many therapists are surprised to learn how cost-effective the line is as well. The Comfort is a hand-made, custom fit garment with exceptional durability, that is offered at up to half the price of its comparable garments in the market!
Clinical studies have proven its effectiveness, time has proven its durability and Peninsula BioMedical is proud to offer the Comfort at a very affordable cost. Simply put, the Comfort is the best in its class.
