Juxta-Fit upper leg with knee piece
- Simple donning and doffing
- Adjustable, measurable compression
- Pleasant wearing comfort
The Juxta-Fit upper leg with knee piece is an adjustable compression device for optimising and maintaining therapy results achieved in the decongestion phase. With a high wall-stability it offers optimum compression for mild to severe lymphoedema. Thanks to the integrated Built-in-Pressure System (BPS) the required compression range can be set precisely as well as controled and re-adjusted at any time. Its easy donning and doffing makes circaid juxtafit an alternative for those patients who have challenges with the established flat knitted compression stockings in the maintenance phase of leg lymphoedema.
- Easy handling – simple donning and doffing
- circaid Built-In-Pressure System (BPS): adjustable, measurable and re-adjustable compression
- Re-adjustability of the individual bands avoids pressure loss and thus sliding down of the garment (1,2)
- Breathe-O-Prene: breathable and inelastic material with high wall-stability for high working pressure
- Latex-free, odour-inhibiting material with anti-bacterial effect
- Features for upper leg: Smooth material in the back of the knee – for more wearing comfort
- Also available as made-to-measure
- Twelve month lifespan
- Offering an alternative therapy solution for patients who are not able to apply or tolerate compression stockings
- Compression therapy – essential part of the complex lymphoedema therapy(3)
- Increased patient-adherence: 94.6 % of the users experience the wearing comfort as pleasant (4)
- Increased mobility: possibility of wearing regular footwear (4)
- Easy handling allows for self-management of the patient
The compression system is designed to provide compression to the leg for patients with venous and lymphatic disorders. The device consists of a series of juxtapositioned, inelastic bands extending from the central portion of the garment. The wrap contours the leg and is designed to cover from just above the ankle bone to just below the knee.

Giraffes have venous pressures of more than 250 mmHg at their ankles, three times more than humans. However, giraffes do not suffer from lymphoedema or venous disorders. The answer is the skin: giraffe skin is inelastic, meaning it does not stretch. Thus, giraffes are not susceptible to lymphoedema or venous diseases even though they may be on their feet 24 hours a day. circaid has incorporated this concept into its products creating solutions for an increased patient compliance and a better quality of life.
