Decreases fluid retention from congested areas through increased lymphatic drainage.
Speeds healing of venous stasis ulcers, caused by chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), by increasing oxygenation to the wound.
Reduces swelling and relieves pain caused by inflammation following injury or surgery.
Stimulates the flow of lymph fluid, flushing toxins from the body and encourages a supply of healthy oxygenated blood to the skin.
Enhances the patient’s mobility, relieves discomfort and reduces the risk of cellulitis. Decreases skin fibrosis, swelling and improves overall skin condition.
When a lymph vessel is cut or blocked, or cannot function properly, fluid (edema) builds up in the area under the skin.
Inflammation and tissue changes including fat deposition and fibrosis reduce the function of adjacent lymph vessels. This causes the disease to worsen if untreated.
Limbs can become extremely large and heavy, and patients are susceptible to dangerous infections such as cellulitis.
Lymphoedema is often caused by disease or physical damage to the lymph vessels or nodes, such as:
Cancer surgery/radiation or tumour blockage
Chronic venous insufficiency disease
Infections (for example, lymphatic filariasis).
Lipoedema is a long-term condition where there is an abnormal build-up of fat cells in the legs, thighs and buttocks, and sometimes in the arms.
A person with lipoedema may eventually develop lymphoedema as well, if the build-up of fat affects lymphatic drainage. This combination of the two conditions is known as lipo-lymphoedema.
CVI is often caused by damage to the one-way valves in the veins in the legs. Damaged valves allow blood to flow backwards, increasing the pressure in the veins. The pressure causes fluid to leak out of the vein capillaries.Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) affects many adults aged 50 and above. It can cause significant health problems including pain, skin changes, and edema. It also causes chronic leg wounds known as venous stasis ulcers.
Edema accumulates and can cause significant leg swelling. It slows oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues, while damage to blood vessels triggers inflammation.
Lympha Press® treats lymphoedema and lipoedema by:
– Removing existing edema through increased lymph transport.
– Re-enabling lymph vessels to remove edema by moving the fluid to vessels undamaged by inflammation.
– Reducing future edema by increasing venous blood return.
– It treats CVI and venous stasis ulcers by stimulating the lymphatic system to return blood flow function back to normal, allowing damaged valves and vessels to heal and preventing its recurrence through continued use.
Lympha Press® is a high-quality compression therapy system which compliments manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) treatments, to dramatically improve patient health.
It is the leading compression therapy in Europe and the USA and it is clinically proven to treat lymphoedema, lipoedema and vascular and circulatory conditions.
Lympha Press® PCD-51™ is a compact system designed for home treatment to accommodate a variety of clinical situations. The innovative and unique garments are renowned for their high quality and comfort.
The Lympha Press® device applies pressure in sequence from the distal part of the limb towards the body. The pressure wave is created by overlapping inflatable chambers inside a special garment, or ‘sleeve’, which is fastened around the area to be treated.
The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system. It absorbs and transports interstitial fluids back to the blood circulation. Tiny lymph capillaries take up fluids that leak out of the vein capillaries and transport this lymph fluid through larger lymph vessels to the blood circulation. Lympha Press® creates pressure waves that stimulates the lymphatic system, encouraging the fluid’s movement.
