Short Cuts to Measuring

  1. Measure full length of arm. (See #9)
  2. Look at arm. Measure circumference of any large area or area of concern for using the pump.
  3. On the Bio Spec Sheet, find the length closest to your patient’s measurements – remember
    that the fingertips MUST be inside the Garment. Now look at the circumferences. As long
    as your patient is smaller than the sizing we give for the Garment, the Garment will fit. Almost
    all of our patients fit into our standard arm Garments
