If you are about to have surgery, SRC SurgiHeal garments may just be the ‘wonderwear’ you need to facilitate post-surgical wound healing and rehabilitation with effective pain relief:
- Lower back surgery
- Spinal surgery
- Lower abdominal surgery and
- Hernia repairs
SRC SurgiHeal garments provide continuous gentle compression to a wound post-surgery which assists in reducing pain.
84% of our test subjects said the SurgiHeal compression garments were very effective at decreasing wound pain and 70% required less pain medication while wearing.
Anatomical Support Panels (ASP) developed and patented by SRC Health deliver targeted compression. This can be ideal for wound healing and treating multiple conditions such as recovery from abdominal and back surgeries, gynaecological procedures and back pain, as well as reducing the risk of DVT by improving mobility.
The unique SRC fabric technology promotes muscle activation by providing continuous gentle compression to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles. Activation of muscle provides greater stability to a wound while it is healing.
Early mobility following surgery is deemed crucial, since postoperative immobilisation is widely held to contribute to cardiovascular instability, thromboembolic complications, and catabolism, in addition to pulmonary morbidity. Wound compression after major abdominal surgery can enhance the speed of postoperative recovery of walk performance.
The garments also assist with swelling reduction. Feeling like a second skin and without being tight, the gentle compression increases the pressure in the tissue under the skin. This reduces swelling by moving the excess fluid that builds up around the wound back into the deeper venous blood vessels and back to the heart. Increasing venous and lymphatic drainage from around a wound allows for nutrient rich oxygenated blood to infiltrate the tissue allowing for faster healing.
The ASP deliver True Cross Compression (TCC) as each layer within the panel is cut on a different plane so that during activity no compression is lost at any time.
