We provide state of the art custom molded seating systems. Sometimes the ideal product for a client is a combination of both types of seating, usually a carved foam seat cushion with a custom molded backrest shape.
Custom molded seating systems can either be constructed using poured foam techniques or by molding ABS plastic. The type of system best suited for a client depends on their specific needs. Poured foam systems are softer but heavier while molded ABS is lighter but more firm. There are many other considerations that can be discussed during the Specifications Appointment.
Custom Commode Seating
Custom commode seating has traditionally been a challenge due to necessary hygienic requirements. To overcome this obstacle, we waterproof our systems with silicone, use non-porous foams for padding and integrate plastics that do not absorb moisture. Custom commode wheelchair seating can be custom contoured or planar in shape.

What is Compression Therapy?
- It is the application of a counterpressure to the limb to reduce venous hypertension.
- Compression must be graduated to counteract the force of gravity (strongest at the ankle and decreasing in strength in a proximal direction).
What are the Aims of Compression Therapy?
- To prevent a decrease in blood flow velocity. Ie. To improve venous blood flow by returning the blood back to the heart more effectively and efficiently.
- To restore blood flow velocity to normal, by squeezing valves in veins closer together.
- To prevent raised intravascular and tissue pressures by improving venous blood return.
What are the Steps in Obtaining Garments?
- Talk to your doctor is you have tired, achy legs, regardless of swelling.
- Have your doctor write a prescription.
- Come in and talk to us about your compression needs. We will help guide you in the process of obtaining a prescription if you do not have one.
- The best time to be measured for your garments is first thing in the morning.
- Home consultations are also available.
Anti-embolic (TEDS) stockings are not compression stockings – call us to find out the difference!
What is Lymphedema
Lymphedema is the result of disruption in the lymphatic system, resulting in obstructed lymphatic flow, enlarged and disfigured limbs, pain, and susceptibility to infection. Lymphedema often limits the lifestyle of the patient. Unfortunately there is no cure for lymphedema. However Macdonald’s Home Health Care can offer a treatment that improves the quality of life for primary or secondary lymphedema patients.
The Lympha Press
The Lympha Press ® multicompartmental pressure system offers a distinct advantage over unicompartmental pressure systems, often used in the treatment of lymphedema. Using physiological principles, pressure is established from the distal area of the Lympha Press® Sleeve and progresses until the entire sleeve is sequentially inflated. When the entire sleeve is filled with air, all the cells automatically empty themselves, and the cycle begins again.
The Lympha Press was first introduced to the province of British Columbia in 1987 at the B.C. Cancer Control Agency. To date, many hospitals and clinics in B.C. have them. Since 1997, Macdonald’s Prescriptions has been the main distributor of the Lympha Press ®. In 2005, a third model was introduced, the Lympha Press Plus, which is fully programmable and is used in-store for our patient pump therapy sessions.
Lymphedema is something you are born with (primary) or due to some trauma, like surgery, radiation, injury etc. (secondary). There is help for both kinds. One part of the treatment is the pump and is only used after you have been assessed by a physician. The other parts of treatment include instruction in skin care, exercises specifically for lymphedema, lymphatic massage, and often wearing of a special elastic compression sleeve or stocking.
Lymphedema is a condition that should not be left untreated. The fluid build up in an arm or leg is not simply water. It is a protein rich fluid with fibrous qualities that the body uses to repair itself with. But when it is in the wrong place, for example around a joint, it can harden and make it difficult for the joint to move.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the above information, we would be pleased to meet or talk with you. Please call us at 604-872-5496 or email us for further information.
