EDS (Ehlers-Danlos syndromes) form a heterogeneous group of hereditary connective tissue pathologies, which present a characteristic triad: cutaneous hyperelasticity, articular hyperlaxity and connective tissue fragility.
The innumerable sprains and dislocations of all the joints require recurrent immobilizations and are responsible for a musculoskeletal handicap, chronic pains and a great fatigability, resounding on the quality of life of the patient.
The use of custom-made compression garments seems to provide relief from pain, especially nociceptive pain and in stabilizing joints by proprioceptive effect.
The SEDCARE study is an observational monocentric, non-comparative study. 76 patients will be followed in this study for 2 years during which they will wear compression custom-made garments (Cerecare®).The main objective of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of pressure garments Cerecare in the EDS, especially in terms of joint pain.

- Device: Cerecare compression garments
all Cerecare compression garments
- Joint pain assessment [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Assessment of the most painful joint by an VAS (Visual Analog Scale) [0-100mm]. The most painful joint at 0 months (= before use Compression Garments) will be choose as the primary outcome measure. The primary outcome measure will be done at 6 months.
- Joint pain assessment [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]Assessment of joint pain by an VAS (Visual Analog Scale) [0-100mm]: shoulder, elbow, wrist, finger, hip, knee, ankle.
- Daily monitoring of joint instability [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]Daily monitoring of joint instability as sprain, dislocation and subluxation (shoulder, elbow, wrist, finger, hip, knee, ankle).
- Neuropathic pain assessment [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]
Assessment of neuropathic pain by the PAIN Detect questionnaire.
The PAIN Detect questionnaire contains:
- 3 numerical scales (NS) [0-10],
- 7 items with categorical response (never, hardly noticed, slightly, moderately, strongly, very strongly).
- Proprioception disorders [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]Assessment of proprioception disorders by the Berg Balance Scale (BBS) [0-56]. The BBS contains 14 items; each item is scored from 0 to 4.
- Functional independence assessment [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]
Assessment of functional independence by the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) [18-126].
The FIM contains 18 items; each item is scored from 1 (total assistance) to 7 (complete independence).
- Tiredness [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]Assessment of Tiredness by the FSS scale (Fatigue Severity Scale) [1-7].
- Patient's quality of life [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]Assessment of Life quality by the SF-12 questionnaire (Short Form questionnaire on quality of life with 12 items).
- Tolerance: incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]By questioning the patient and by a medical exam, evaluation of adverse effect due to compression garments (Yes/ No): itch, edema, blister, redness, dermal ulceration.
- Compliance [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]By questioning the patient, estimate the number of hours of compression garments daily use.
