Burn Garment Measurements

When a patient suffers a severe burn to any part of the body, uniform pressure is very important in the healing process in order for the new skin to form properly. This is usually done through the use of a customized compression garment. The therapist takes specific measurements, which are used for fabrication of a customized compression garment. Once the garment has been received, the patient is educated in the proper wear and care of the garment.
