Compression Therapy for Scar Management

Find out more about compression therapy.

What is compression therapy?

Compression therapy will reduce scarring and improve the cosmetic appearance of the scar.

Compression therapy is widely used as a first line conventional treatment of problem scarring which is commonly seen in the case of more severe burn injuries, especially those that require a skin graft, or for post-operative scar complications.

In cases such as these there is an increased risk of the scar area becoming very over active, red, raised and lumpy. This is known as hypertrophic or keloid scarring. Compression Orthoses can be used successfully as either a preventative or a corrective method of scar management.

Pressure Garments

Our orthoses help provide pressure in order to try and prevent the formation of a hypertrophic scar.

The compression effects applied by a pressure garment helps to improve the rate of scar maturation and prevents the thickness of the scar increasing by providing a constant cylindrical force to the area of scar tissue.

As you would expect from an innovative, dynamic company, we integrate recent research evidence to inform our scar management designs.

Dynamic Pressure Garments

We incorporate dynamically aligned panels into our standard poly-cotton pressure garment design.

Using experience gained from the highly successful DMO Medical range, DM Orthotics Ltd was the first manufacturer to develop dynamic pressure garments for use in scar management.

Our products provide corrective forces that help to reduce the formation of muscle and soft tissue contracture associated with scarring.
