Our Experience with the Fast 'n Go Wraps

Fast 'n Go Wraps from Rivera Hybrid Solution


As a mom caring for Jo, who has lymphedema, finding effective and convenient treatment options is always a top priority. Back in April, we started using a new product called Fast 'n Go wraps from Rivera Hybrid Solution. Due to a series of events, including sickness, internet issues, and the general busyness of life, we weren't able to keep up with our review as thoroughly as we would have liked. However, I'm excited to share our experience with this innovative product now.

 

Initially, we hoped that the Fast 'n Go wraps would work on Jo’s foot, but unfortunately, due to her specific presentation and lack of a toe cap, it didn’t work. However, we quickly discovered that they were incredibly effective on her calf, knee, and thigh. In the beginning, the first three weeks showed slow results. I suspect this was due to operator error as we were still getting the hang of applying them correctly.


As we became more adept at using the wraps, we saw excellent reductions. By consistently using the Fast 'n Go wraps every single day, we observed significant improvements in Jo’s condition. This was particularly evident in her knee and thigh areas, where the wraps provided excellent support and compression. It even improved her fibrotic areas.


Since starting decongestive therapy at the beginning of June, the Fast 'n Go wraps have become an integral part of our routine. On days when Jo needs a break from full bandaging, we use the Fast 'n Go wraps on her knee and thigh, while applying multi-layer bandaging below the knee. This combination has worked wonders, providing both comfort and effective compression.


Additionally, we’ve found the Fast 'n Go wraps to be incredibly useful over her night garments. They help ensure a better fit during her decongestive stage, adding an extra layer of support and stability. The wraps are also great for quick and easy adjustments during the day, making them a practical choice for active lifestyles.


One of the standout features of the Fast 'n Go wraps is their versatility. They can be used over worn-out day garments, providing extra compression and extending the life of those garments. Jo can also sleep in them, which adds convenience and ensures continuous support even during the night. This adaptability makes them an excellent option for various situations and needs.


We are confident that once Jo’s decongestive stage is complete and she is fitted with new toe caps, the Fast 'n Go wraps will also be beneficial for her foot. The potential for these wraps to complement her treatment and provide effective compression across multiple areas is very promising.


Looking back, I do wish we had been able to provide a more detailed and timely review of the Fast 'n Go wraps. They have proven to be an excellent investment, especially for those days between garments or during a flare-up when traditional bandaging may not be preferred.

 

The Fast 'n Go wraps from Rivera Hybrid Solution have made a significant positive impact on Jo’s lymphedema management. Despite our initial challenges and the slow start, the results have been remarkable. For anyone looking for a reliable and effective compression solution, I highly recommend giving the Fast 'n Go wraps a try. They have truly been a game-changer for us.


Hugs and Wellness,

Jamie

This is an awesome review. I wish I had a product as a kid. I most definitely would have been more compliant in the early stages compared to what I was.


Keep up the great work Jo and keep on reducing. You’re doing a great job!!
