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.

Hi Kelly,

I originally sent this in as a suggestion on the section of your website encouraging suggestions, but it occurred to me this is actually a question.   I wear bandages during the day, I can't wear the elastic type of stockings, and I have a night time compression garment already and wondered if you made a garment that could be worn during the day with a shoe?

Frank G. (you may use my name)

Dear Frank,

Since we are mostly known for our night time compression, many patients don't realize we have several garments that can easily be modified for day time wear.  Our OptiFlow RM is our ready-made product where the foot piece is sold separately, so this garment starts at the ankle.  For a slimmer profile, our Jazz is manufactured with or without the foot portion. It is only 1/4" thick and it is activity friendly. Our Comfort line is also a popular product to be ordered footless, so it can be used for day time use with a shoe. Lastly for severe cases, even our Classic garment has been modified for day time wearing.  I suggest you have your therapist or primary health care provider contact us about the options available and help you decide the best garment for your specific case. There are other manufacturer's on the market who also have very effective garments (that are not stockings) that are worn during the day, we are happy to go over those products with you as well.

Thank you!
