The Noble Heart Fund is designed to help those in need with their night-time compression. When we find a patient who fits the criteria for the Noble Heart Fund, they are provided a night-time compression sleeve either free of cost or at a highly discounted price.

 Ask Kelly

Dear Kelly,

Why is egg crate style foam used?

(Ok to use my real name!)

Dear Jean-Ann,
This is a popular question and is in our FAQ section of our website. I will post the answer here and thanks for asking!

The venous and lymphatic systems operate at low pressure. If the pressure applied to the limb is too high, the veins and lymphatics can be blocked. Blocking venous and lymphatic flow raises the venous pressure and increases backflow. To avoid this problem we have incorporated convoluted foam that provides areas of high and low pressure. The low-pressure areas insure that venous and lymphatic obstruction is minimized when pressure is applied to the limb.

Hope this is helpful Jean Ann and Happy Holidays!
