Why Choose Juxta-Fit™?
Ensured Compression Levels
All Juxta-Fit™ products now feature the Built-in Pressure
System™ (BPS™), allowing you to instantly adjust the compression level to your
prescribed range or the level that is most firm and comfortable.
Juxta-Fit™ leg systems provide support for a wide range of
compression levels (20-30, 30-40, 40-50 or 50+ mmHg) with a single BPS™ Guide
Card, including the higher 50+ mmHg level required for some cases of severe
Juxta-Fit™ Premium versus Juxta-Fit™ Essentials
Juxta-Fit™ Premium Products have an estimated life span of
12-18 months, whereas Juxta-Fit™ Essentials Products have an estimated 6 month
life span, offering an economical alternative to the original Juxta-Fit™
Both series of Juxta-Fit™ garments are designed to hug the
shape of the limb, giving a more comfortable fit and reducing slippage. The
Breathe-O-Prene® material keeps the skin cool and dry, reducing discomfort. The
inner liner contains SILVERtec™ - an anti-static, anti-odor, thermodynamic
agent that prevents bacteria growth within the garment.
Patented Juxta™ Band System
The patented Juxta-Lock™ closure system is engineered for
easy application and easy adjustments as needed throughout the day.
What sizes and lengths are available for Juxta-Fit™ lower
Juxta-Fit™ lower leggings are available in a short 28 cm
length and a long 36 cm length. The standard sizes are available in Small,
Medium, Medium Full Calf, Large, Large Full Calf, XL, XL Full Calf and XXL
sizes in each length. Juxta-Fit™ Premium Leggings can also be custom-made to
What warranty do the Juxta-Fit™ Premium and Essentials line
The Juxta-Fit™ Premium’s warranty is for manufacturing
defects for up to 1 year and the Juxta-Fit™ Essentials’ warranty is for
manufacturing defects for up to 6 months from the date of patient purchase.
Because of the inelastic nature of our products materials,
establishes a lower compression force when resting, increasing the patients
comfort. When a patient is standing or
moving the inelastic material provides a higher working pressure to counteract
the pressures of gravity and activates the calf-muscle pump. This prevents fluid
reflux and maintains the volume of the limb.
CircAid® compression garments use a flat foam as in
bandaging to apply even, firm, gradient compression. The garments incorporate
strategically placed seams to aid in conforming to limb shape. CircAid® products may be custom made to
conform to uniquely shaped limbs and accommodate patient needs. The garments incorporate protective padding
while maintaining a compression gradient. Non-aggressive foam is used in our
garments to eliminate possible irritation or harm. This allows the garment to
be used safely outside a professional hands-on environment promoting patient
CircAid® garments are designed for durability and ease of
use. Our products allow patients to lead independent lives. Because of the
inelastic nature of CircAid® compression garments, when a patient is in a
resting position there are no constricting properties of the garment which may
cause discomfort. When the patient is active the inelasticity counteracts the
pressure of gravity and aids the calf muscle pump in fluid removal.
A cotton stockinette or sock is provided with our products
to protect the skin and absorb excess perspiration. CircAid® compression garments are tightened beginning
distally ending proximally. CircAid® products' liners can be laundered frequently for
infection control. The products maintain appropriate compression 2-4 times
longer than bandages.
The primary goal of CircAid® compression garments is to
assist limb reduction and maintenance of reduced limb volume. Because of the inelastic nature of our garments, they
provide the forces necessary within tissue spaces and capillaries to ensure
that the fluid entering tissue spaces equals the fluid leaving, i.e. normalized
lymph flow. CircAid® compression garments maintain the shape of the limb
and by using non or limited stretch materials that don't allow volume change
because of their inelastic quality.
CircAid® Care and Manintainance
Hand Wash only using a mild detergent. Air dry flat or on a
clothesline. Do not bleach or iron. Estimated time 5 minutes.
Inspiration from Nature
Most are unaware that giraffes have venous pressures of more than 250 mmHg at their ankles? That is three times more than humans. However, giraffes do not suffer from lymphedema or venous disorders. Physiologists have discovered the answer in the skin. Giraffe skin is inelastic, meaning that it does not stretch. Thus, giraffes are not susceptible to problems like lymphedema and venous disease, even though they may be on their feet 24 hours a day. CircAid® has incorporated this concept into its products, creating solutions that help patients heal while allowing them to maintain an independent lifestyle.
The CircAid® Legacy
After raising three children and suffering from lymphedema for years, Hertha Shaw had to rest and elevate her leg every few hours. Despite seeking help from many vascular specialists, Hertha still found her condition worsening and her job in jeopardy. Frank Shaw, her husband and an engineer, was also a successful inventor. When he saw the pain his wife was in, he knew he had to find a solution. The result was the first patented CircAid legging (short for circulation aid). It literally put his wife back on her feet to resume a normal, active life. This core technology would evolve into today’s CircAid Medical Products, Inc., run by Frank and Hertha's daughter, Sandra Shaw.
