Lymphedema compression taken to a new level with Angela Vollmer, orthopedic technician from Freiburg, Germany.

The Dr. Vodder School held a 2 day "Expert Garment Fitter" course in Victoria, BC in May. In conjunction wit BSN medical, this course teaches the art of garment fitting to fitters, therapists and clinicians already familiar with garment fitting. The response from participants was extremely positive and two half days of the course were spent with lymphedema patients learning all the tricks and ways to maximize fitting the perfect garment. Participants from across Canada and Washington State included fitters, occupational therapists, nurses and lymphedema therapists. It is hoped to repeat this class next year.
