We hope your summer is off to a great start and that you’ve got some exciting things planned—maybe a backyard barbecue, or a trip to see family members you’ve been missing. We feel like we’ve been seeing lots of vacation and relaxation selfies lately, and that makes us smile. Whatever you’re doing, it’s time to have a little summertime fun.
Take therapy with you!
With all these activities going on, it’s great to know that you don’t have to build your life around therapy. Instead, the compact and portable Aria FreeTM system is designed to fit into your life. With a compression pump that fits in the palm of your hand and a smartly designed garment that’s streamlined and lightweight, Aria Free can almost go wherever you go. In fact, it’s cleared as a carry-on for air travel, too, meaning you can take it with you as a carry-on. If you have a flight coming up, you can download a copy of the Aria Health travel compliance letter here so it’s one less thing to worry about.
Let’s talk about self-care.
This time of year is great, but when the days get long, it’s easy to lose track of time—especially when we’re traveling, hanging out at pool parties with a nice glass of iced tea, a floppy hat, maybe a good book, nice companions, some great music—oh, there we go daydreaming again—any semblance of a schedule disappears. So set reminders to maintain your therapy, keep yourself hydrated, make sure you get some exercise, and take it easy while you’re taking it easy.
Use your sun sense!
If you’ve been living with lymphedema for a while, you’re probably used to avoiding excessive sun exposure, knowing it can dilate blood vessels and cause swelling. But if you’re newly diagnosed, take a look at our lymphedema FAQ where you’ll find more on sun and all kinds of useful info on exercise, skincare, and more. A quick hot-weather tip is to keep a good, high-quality sunscreen in your backpack, and while you’re at it, toss in some lightweight, light-colored clothes too. That way you’ll be ready for whatever summer throws your way. It’s good to be flexible, right? We like that spontaneity.
Make every day independence day.
Since we’ve got freedom and flexibility on our minds, we want to remind you that you can try Aria Free, risk-free for 30 days. We think you will love it, but if you don't, you can return it for a full refund. Check out our return policy for more info!
We hope you enjoy the spirit of adventure this summer. Keep us posted—we’re excited to see all the places you go. (Even if it’s just from the front porch to the back porch—you do you.) We’re with you all the way.
Aria Free is changing compression therapy. Developed in association with our parent company, ResMed, our pump is backed by thirty years of innovative health technology expertise.
