Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a prescription to purchase a BODHE product?
Ready to wear and standard off the shelf compression garments do not require a prescription. At the present time, BODHE products are not covered by insurance plans.
How does Silver decrease infections?
Silver’s Effective Pathogen Reduction: 99% of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and fungal organisms eliminated within the first 24 hours. Micro-bonded metallic silver ions are uniformly distributed throughout the yarn, providing exposure to the entire skin surface for maximal exposure whereby decreasing the likelihood of an infection at the incision site and decrease odor to the garment.
Are there any potential issues from wearing the fabric used in BODHE products?
In very rare cases some people may find that they are allergic to silver. If you find that you are allergic to silver, stop wearing the garment immediately. Send an email to our customer relations department and we will make every effort to get you a replacement garment that does not have silver infused into the yarn.
Is uniform compression effective?
Yes, uniform compression is effective clinically in managing edema. Perhaps the most important effect is that compression increases the pressure in the tissue under the skin (subcutaneous) helping to reduce and prevent swelling. The compression of subcutaneous tissue helps move excess fluid (swelling) back into the capillaries (tiniest of the blood vessels) and helps prevent too much fluid from leading out of these little vessels.

I just had surgery. Are BODHE products safe to wear?
Some doctors do recommend BODHE products immediately post device replacement surgery and 3-6 weeks after a new device implant. We highly recommend you consult your physician before getting your BODHE back!
The product I purchased is defective or the wrong size, what should I do?
How do I know which size to buy?
When purchasing any BODHE product, it's important to find the size that's right for you. Due to the compression nature of our garments, picking a size too small could have the opposite affect with minimal discomfort relief. View our sizing charts to find the perfect fit for you!
