BioCompression's Elite 8 Chamber Bio Vest is made of high quality 200 Denier Nylon Oxford coated with 3 mils of Polyurethane. The garment provides tissue fluid movement from the arm all the way to the thoracic duct. With a chamber located directly at the axillary area, scar tissue and axillary nodes are effectively addressed. Chest edema is not a problem with the Bio Vest. If the thoracic duct is blocked and/or not draining adequately, fluids will be redirected in a downward motion thereby creating new channels. This process, called lymphangiogenesis, is performed by this sleeve and the ultimate goal for tissue fluid movement. Donning the garment is simple and the initial fitting insures a proper fit every time with no migration while in use. The Elite-8-Chamber Bio Vest provides the best possible solution for those with difficult conditions. This garment is to be used with our Pump Model SC-2008 or our SC-3008.
