A long-considered opinion

Posted by adam p on 3/24/02 at 10:48 (077388)

After much consideration, wheel-reinvention, etc.,
I have come to the conclusion that a GREAT, GREAT help
out 'there' for pf may be a custom pressure garment,
specifically, a 'foot glove' such as that made by Bio-con.

Bio-con has a website, and I'm asking everyone to--please--
take a look at their site, evaluate these gloves for the
pf indication and raise the hue and cry for FDA approval, etc.

I am NOT connected to Bio-con or any other medical product
concern!

It looks as though, insofar as the garment can be anchored
(with tape, glue or a belt), and used with the right shoes/
orthotics, it could take over some of the job of the pf.

Thanks for your interest! Bio-Concepts, Inc. is the
complete business name.

I'd go to the URL http://www.bio-con.com/index.html

Also they're at 2424 E. University Dr., Phoenix, AZ 85034.

It has occured to me that their expertise in garment materials
being in constant contact with the skin could give them the inside
track.

They sell pressure garments for lymphedema. Such products can be pricey if custom made. Certainly worth a try.
