NOVATEX MEDICAL compression garments are tailor-made for patients with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and for burn victims. Compression garments are class I medical devices. They are reimbursed on medical prescription. These medical devices are regulated healthcare products, and carry the CE mark. Read the instructions in the manual carefully.

What is SED?

Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is an inherited genetic disorder of the connective tissue that makes up 80% of the human body. This pathology therefore affects almost all organs.
The main features of this syndrome are hypermobility, joint fragility, hyper-elasticity and skin and tissue fragility, leading to impaired proprioception.

Proprioception is the sense of spatial position, displacement and stress experienced by the body via receptors in the connective tissue.
SED causes a change in these receptors, which either fail to send information to the nerve centers, or send it incorrectly. The information is therefore erroneous, which explains the difficulties patients have in representing themselves in their environment.

The aim of compressive garments is precisely to restore proprioception by stressing and compressing the skin and soft tissues (muscles, tendons) to ensure better sensor reactivity.

What about burn victims?

A burn is an injury to the skin or mucous membranes caused by exposure to intense heat or contact with a physical or chemical agent. In the case of a burn, the protective cutaneous barrier is broken. This skin opening must be reconstructed either naturally by spontaneous healing, or surgically by skin grafts.

Compression garments are applied after epithelialization of deep second- and third-degree wounds, on solid epidermis.

Tailor-made compression garments for burn victims aim to reorganize collagen fibers to prevent anarchic healing of connective tissue. They help reduce unsightly scars and dysfunctional flanges.
