We do! We recommend two different positions for donning the garment. Use the one that is most comfortable for you.
Standing (or the stocking method)
Lying down (or the wrap method)
You can wear the garment directly on intact skin, or over sheer liners or loose-fitting non-elastic pants. The garment should have a tight fit—but it shouldn’t be restrictive. If you have worn yoga pants or running tights, that is the general idea. It is important to avoid wearing anything underneath the garment that may hamper the lymph flow. This would include pants with heavy seams or zippers, and compression stockings.
Before setting up, find a comfortable place for therapy. Ideally you want your legs stretched out on a sofa or bed during therapy.
The Aria Free system delivers gradient sequential therapy with a pressure range of 45mmHG at the foot to 35mmHG at the thigh. This fixed preset eliminates the need for any adjustments in pressure. Aria Free is designed to target the lymphatic system with gentle gradient pressure, which should feel like the light touch of a manual lymph drainage (MLD) massage. Read more about how lighter pressures encourage movement and clearance of lymph through the body’s lymphatic system in the journal Annals of Vascular Surgery.
