The first manufacturer we’ll highlight is based right here in Texas. FarrowMed was created by a wound care physician named Wade Farrow. He came up with a product that allowed easy access to wounds but also provided compression that’s easy to put on & take off using Velcro as opposed to the customary compression hose. The Farrow Wrap is a short-stretch fabric (like short-stretch bandages used in lymphedema treatment) which provides a low, steady resting compression & the needed high-working compression with activity to effectively facilitate fluid loss. And, because it’s a short-stretch fabric, most of their garments can be worn day or night. Though not superior to lymphedema bandaging, the FarrowMed products are a great solution for people with lower leg lymphedema or venous insufficiency. Their product lines tend to be popular & the FarrowMed team not only demonstrate good customer service but Texas friendliness, too.
They offer arm, hand, leg & foot compression products as well as accessory items. Some of their best items include the Trim-to-Fit compression (a garment that can be cut down as a limb reduces), the Classic line & the FarrowWrap LITE garments. Additionally, their FarrowHybrid AD liners are a good substitute for the Velcro foot wraps for a less bulky compression option. More information can be found at www.farrowmed.com.
