<p>This article looks at three case reports which show the clinical effects of the inelastic, adjustable device, Juxta-Fit™(medi UK). This device allows patients to be self-caring and independent. It is also effective in reducing the volume of the lymphoedematous limb and as maintenance therapy following decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT). Juxta-Fit can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or in conjunction with compression garments if oedema formation is unable to be controlled with compression garments alone. Juxta-Fit offers a comfortable inelastic high working pressure and low resting pressure similar to short-stretch bandaging.</p>
