The company developed a range of compression products with velcro wraps to treat lymphedema, lipedema and chronic venous insufficiency. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. SIGVARIS pursued the acquisition as part of its international growth strategy for medically complex compression applications, calling BiaCare “a pioneering leader” in the segment. For BiaCare, the deal “significantly increases our ability to provide physicians and therapists the compression solutions they need,” according to President Keith Hoffman.
