Continuous Flow Channeling

Jovi products utilize four different densities of chipped foam to apply gentle pressure to the tissue, creating regional channeling of high and low pressure areas. This effectively helps push edema and lymph fluid into areas of least resistance along the channels and toward functioning lymphatic drainage areas of the body, a technology JoviPak® calls Continuous Flow Channeling.  

JoviPak® products utilize medical grade chipped foam in a two blend (softest two densities) or four blend of different foam densities. This foam is able to settle into the tissues and move as the body and muscles move, and is believed to create a micro-massaging effect.  While few clinical trials have been done to prove efficacy of chipped foam garments, many lymphedema therapists believe this type of garment can help reduce stubborn lymphedema over time through compliant use, and may help break up fibrotic skin areas to keep the underlying skin soft and supple. The proposed pathophysiology is not unlike that studied in burn patients.  Studies on burn patients have shown how fibrosis from excess collagen can occur after tissue injury and inflammation, and how slow and prolonged stress on these fibers can help elongate and soften the collagen, allowing for a softening of the fibrotic tissue and improved evacuation of fluid from the congested area. Chipped foam garments and compression may work in a similar way to help break up fibrotic areas.

Chipped foam garment use by lymphedema therapists is growing throughout the U.S., both because patients and therapists find it easier and quicker than traditional bandaging, and also because many therapists feel their patients are seeing true and lasting improved quality of life through this technology.
