An easy alternative for those who lack the strength or dexterity to use traditional compression stockings and bandages. The Breathe-O-Prene® material is cool, light-weight, and allows the skin to breathe. The SILVERtec treatment in the fabric can help eliminate odor and the growth of bacteria.
Juxta-Lite is engineered with the ability to be set to three compression levels (20-30, 30-40, or 40-50 mmHg). The Built-In Pressure SystemTM (BPS) is what makes this possible. Patients can set the compression level each time they don their legging by using the BPS card. In addition, Juxta-Lite is designed not to loose its inelastic integrity over the life of the garment.
Studies confirm that consistent inelastic compression is key to healing venous stasis ulcers, reducing ulcer recurrence and reducing edema. This patented technology is just one of the many ways that CircAid continues to make compression easier and more effective for your patients. The user friendly design of Juxta-Lite enables patients to achieve the higher compression levels necessary to reduce ulcer recurrence. The patented Juxta-Lock Band System allows for the easy application and adjustment, assuring the appropriate compression level is being applied throughout the period of wear.Compression Guru's take:
Traditional compression can be difficult to put on for certain people. The CircAid Juxta-Lite works great looking for an alternative to those traditional compression systems. The straps are easy to apply and adjust. What makes this product so unique is the ability to set the compression to between 20-30 mmHg to 40-50 mmHg depending on your needs.Ideal For:
- Mild to Moderate Lymphedema

Not Ideal For
- Moderate to Severe Peripheral Arterial Disease
- Decompensated Congestive Heart Failure
- Septic Phlebitis
- Phlegmasia Cerula Dolens
The idea for the CircAid products were inspired by nature. Giraffes have venous pressure of more than 250 mmHg at their ankles, which is three times more than humans. Giraffes however do not suffer from lymphedema or venous disorders. The reason being, giraffe skin is inelastic, meaning it does not stretch unlike human skin. This concept of inelasticity was incorporated into CircAid's products creating solutions that help patients heal while allowing them to maintain an independent lifestyle.
