I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for convincing me to persevere with my Hivamat Personal handset. Since we last spoke I've stopped bandaging my leg and instead use a Jobst Farrow wrap. It is much easier to use and also a lot quicker. I'm using the Hivamat daily on my leg before I get up for about 10-15 minutes and again before I fall asleep, concentrating mainly on the fibrotic areas and scar tissue. Before I start I do a quick MLD with my fingers and hands on my neck, armpits and abdomen.
I also wanted to add that my stay at the Földi Klinik in Germany was hugely beneficial and they are experts at measuring up for effective hosiery.
I still have one MLD session a week with my therapist who also uses the Hivamat. She too is very pleased with the progress we are making.
I'm confident that with time the lymphoedema in my leg will improve further and I'm sure the Hivamat is making a significant difference, especially with the breaking down of fibrotic tissue.
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).
