It is evident that although there is no high-level research into night-time products there are several indications that may warrant this type of compression other than the traditional reason to maintain the effects obtained from complex decongestive therapy. Many factors will influence a client to concord with this type of management especially product wearability. There is also the possibility of an increase in skin tissue oxygenation when wearing compression 24 hours per day.

To increase our clinical reasoning in this management option it is important to be aware of the evidence, explore the various products and also investigate what practitioners are doing concerning night-time compression. To achieve this a free online course has been developed.
