Encircle Product System

Encircle Product System

Encircle Compression Therapy is a range of natural and non-invasive pre and post operative medical grade compression, and non-prescription therapeutic compression for over-the-counter sale. Because blood in the lower limb and foot has the longest distance to travel back to the heart, we have developed a range of knee high garments which can be chosen to meet your individual needs. Encircle Compression Therapy is measured by a class system related to pressure applied (in mmHg) to the limb.

Two Layer System

This class system provides a range of treatment options using the same inner layer, with an outer layer chosen and applied directly over the inner to increase the level of care when required by the wearer. When applied in this way the two layers systematically create a pressure gradient within the venous system. This pressure gradient internally influences systolic blood velocity and the flow volume of blood, whilst increasing the fibrinolytic activity of proteolytic enzymes in the vein wall which dissolves the fibrin in blood clots to facilitate wound healing.

The two cumulative layers of compression allow patients to also build-up the level of care starting at Lite (10-15mmHg), Mild (16-21mmHg), Firm (21-30mmHg) and just launched in 2012, medical grade compression Class 3 (30-40mmHg). Each layer includes a series of visual and mechanical aids integrated into the product to allow a patient to apply and use the product without clinical assistance. In some cases this means patients suffering from chronic conditions may no longer need to visit a hospital or outpatient clinic every time they need to have compression reapplied.

The outer layer also has a unique zipper and elasticised bridge detail, which in use, provides two predetermined levels of compression. In the first configuration, when the zipper is closed the garment provides full pressure. In a second configuration, the zipper can be opened to provide a lower level of pressure. This is particularly important because it offers the wearer a pressure release mechanism; a first for any compression system. Our research identified that the build-up of sustained pressure for prolonged periods is a large contributor to the high level of non-compliance with existing devices. Wearers are often required to wear compression bandages or garments for a long period of time. This feature provides for some relief through temporary and partial release of the pressure without removing the garment.
