N.B. The DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal SPORTS is provided with an additional FOC bespoke card for Lymphoedema, following successful treatment outcome with a listed
My leg is responding really well to the treatments and the overall circumference has reduced. My leg is now back to what it was pre pelvic cancer surgery and treatment.
Lymphoedema in my leg had been getting worse by degrees, as I hadn't been able to avail of MLD from my therapist. Now I have such freedom to do the treatments at home and whenever suits me. I've been doing two 15 minute treatments as I'm on holidays and am active with family.
I'm so pleased I made this purchase. Having had two bouts of cancer in two years and managed to get through the patchwork treatments of surgery chemo and radiotherapy, when Lymphoedema symptoms started to worsen and cellulitis set in, this is what reduced me to tears..The thought of having such an outward symbol of illness really bothered me. The pelvic surgeon was very aware of sparing my lymph nodes and Lymphoedema, but he was the only one that mentioned it.
So anyway, here I am now with my slim leg!! Compression hosiery didn't suit the leg below the knee as they trapped fluid below the ankle and in the garter area below the knee. This caused pooling, stasis and more swelling.
Thanks to you and Julie for your wisdom and expertise and follow up care. Mary, ROI."
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).
