Notes from our Certified Fitters:
Always contact your physician and or therapist to determine the correct compression strength for your condition.
We recommend the Jobst® Bella Strong Ready-to-Wear Armsleeve to our clients looking for a more affordable, yet effective compression armsleeve.
Compression therapy is widely used to control lymphedema and edema in the upper limb. Armsleeves and hand gauntlets worn together or separately help maintain the limb size to assist in management following trauma, surgery, or radiation therapy.
Jobst® Advanced comfort is a unique blend of fibers and finishes that feel soft to the skin and that quickly wicks moisture to keep you cool and comfortable
The Jobst® Bella Strong delivers effective therapy with the highest point of pressure at the mid-forearm, not at the wrist, to ensure an accurate non-binding fit with increased compliance.
The Silicone Dot Band provides a comfortable and secure hold to keep the garment in place.
Additional Information as Provided by the Manufacturer:
- Improved Performance
- Soft, resistant fabric
- Released pressure at the wrist
- Post-thrombotic syndrome
- Vascular malformations
- Ischemia (significantly reduced arterial flow)
- Untreated Septic Phlebitis (infected veins)
- Conditions in which increased venous and lymphatic return is not desired
Wearing Compression For The First Time:
The first few times you wear your compression garment you will notice the squeeze. It is OK to begin wearing your armsleeve gradually. Try wearing it for just a few hours the first day and then increase the number of hours each day until you can wear it comfortably throughout the day while you are up and about. Check your armsleeve periodically to smooth out any wrinkles as the fabric may move during the day. Remove your armsleeve before going to bed.
It is important to wear your compression garments everyday. Compression garments manage an on-going problem. When you remove it, the condition responsible for your symptoms is still there. Failure to wear your garment may cause your condition to become more severe.
Follow the "Application and Care Instructions" included in the package.
Please refer to product label and/or package insert for full instructions on safe use of these products.
Replacing Your Garment
The elastic fibers of your compression garment will break down with wear. Proper care will increase the "life" span of your garment, but you will need to replace your armsleeve about every 3-6 months, depending on how often you are wearing and how you are caring for your garment. As a general rule, if your garment becomes easy to put on, it probably needs to be replaced.

Jobst also has a Bella Strong Ready-to-Wear Hand Gauntlet which is often used together with the armsleeve to help maintain the limb size of someone with lymphedema or edema following trauma, surgery, or radiation therapy.
We recommend that donning gloves always be worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression hose. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the garment.
To preserve the life of your armsleeve, we suggest using Jobst Jolastic Wash.
