Koya Medical launches active compression system for lymphedema and venous disease

Koya Medical announced today that it commercially launched its Dayspring active compression system in the U.S.

Oakland, California-based Koya designed the wearable Dayspring compression system for the treatment of lymphedema and venous diseases in lower extremities. It features a soft, breathable mesh garment with Koya’s proprietary Flexframe — spring-like segments for delivering compression — technology.

The system also has a smart, rechargeable and Bluetooth-enabled controller with a companion app for allowing users and clinicians to customize treatments and review treatment history.
