PhysioPod 'A fantastic breakthrough for lymphoedema patients to manage the MLD themselves with this aid"
For Breast Oedema Management following radiotherapy - Victoria urges patients to seek out DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy which she describes as a 'wonderful technology'
Positive Patient feedback continues to come in for self management of Primary and Secondary Lymphoedema with the DEEP OSCILLATION Personal with bespoke card.
"It has been a journey trying to find answers of how to manage oedema of my left breast after radiotherapy.
The do's and don'ts of lessening the chances of this happening and finding people to help, for reassurance and guidance if anything, has been enigmatic.
The NHS breast nurses had been amazing, however discussions about lymphoedema just lead to a booklet and pamphlets. Waiting time to see a Lymphoedema Specialist was months in the future. I looked them out privately and wished I'd been advised to do this soon as possible after radiotherapy.
I finally came across a brilliant specialist in Norwich who uses Hivamat/Physiopod on all her patients with excellent results. It was through her I have my own individual Physiopod. I can take it abroad. I have not taken it on long haul flights yet, but it is hugely reassuring that I can.
The Physiopod is a fantastic breakthrough for lymphoedema patients to manage the MLD themselves with this aid. While it is expensive you will have it wherever you are and when you need it for relief from the hardness and discomfort that can build up with oedema/lymphoedema and keep it managed. This reassurance gives you control.
So anyone reading this please act sooner and take matters into your own hands. If you can buy or find a specialist that uses this wonderful technology don't delay.
PhysioPod are an excellent, very friendly and understanding support team.
Yours very sincerely
The DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS with bespoke card enables easy daily self management for lymphoedema
Non-invasive, non-traumatic, electrostatic impulses are delivered (without pressure, saving the clinicians hands) through vinyl gloves or applicator heads which enable self management. DEEP OSCILLATION® is fast becoming the tool of choice for Lymphoedema and Lipoedema, treatment and management, with patients self-managing with the personal unit. DEEP OSCILLATION® was developed by Physiomed Elektromedizin in Germany and it is an internationally patented therapeutic design. The forces of pulsed electrostatic attraction and friction provoke oscillations, which act deeply on the tissues of the body from the epidermis down through the conjunctive and adipose layers and into the muscles. Hernandez Tapanes et al (2010) were able to prove, by diagnostic ultrasound, penetration of the oscillations up to an 8cm depth (see diagram).
