Effects of Compression Garments for POTS

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a disorder of blood flow that results in light headedness, fainting and irregular heart rate. This condition is more common in females and can occur in adolescents and adults. The aim of using compression garments for the condition is to relieve symptoms. Compression of the lower limb and abdomen can reduce blood pooling and improve blood return to the heart. This treatment is a good nonpharmacologic option for POTS patients. A research study by Heyer (2014) found POTS patients experienced decreased symptoms when wearing compression garments compared to not wearing compression garments.

 

Supacore offers compression garments that will offer both abdominal and lower limb compression to the wearer. The compression technology allows for improvements in blood flow which could be of benefit to POTS patients by reducing dizziness and other symptoms. Reduction of POTS symptoms will improve quality of life for patients. With a treatment that does not require medication, compression garments are a simple treatment option for POTS patients.
