New developments from Anita have been announced as the Anita UK team returns home from a few days in Austria, where they enjoyed advanced training on the company’s Lymph O Fit range. The intensive training was carried out at the Anita Distribution Centre by Ruth Stratman, who designed all the Lymph O Fit products and Beate Raupach, head of international training for Anita.
The Lymph O Fit products are specialist items designed to assist women suffering from light lymphodemas following the removal of lymph nodes, and include the Lymph O Fit bra, the Lymph O Fit arm sleeve with hand, the Lymph O Fit arm sleeve without a hand and the Lymph O Fit glove. The products are are all made with a specialist fabric that massages the skin of the wearer to improve the flow of fluids around the body, preventing fluid build up which can cause edemas.
Two new highly technical bras are also on the horizon including a new improved post-op compression bra with no seams on the inside, made of the same fabric as the Anita Active Air Control support bra, and the Post OP Mastectomy Bra (1091), an innovative garment with two separate cups, a regular bra cup for the unaffected breast and a clever cup with a pocket on the inside to hold a temporary soft breast form. The pocket is also lined with the Lymph O Fit fabric which will lay gently over the scar tissue to gently massage, apply some light compression and help with the healing process.
