DEEP OSCILLATION® Therapy Provides Hope To Primary Lymphoedema Sufferer In The United States
Thank you to Barcroft TV who have expertly covered the story of a lady with Primary Lymphoedema who has now started HIVAMAT (Deep Oscillation) Therapy treatment and feels she has 'hope' for the future.
"HOPE for a woman with one of the most severe cases of Lymphedema in the world has come in the form of a new therapy that will help reduce her massive leg swelling. Janice Greene, 53, has had Lymphedema all her life – a condition caused by blockage in the lymphatic system, resulting in lymph fluid collecting under the skin causing swelling. But in recent years, the swelling in Janice’s right leg reached such a level, the leg weighed 150 pounds by itself, prompting an expert in Lymphedema to claim Janice as one of the most severe cases in the US he’s ever seen"

DEEP OSCILLATION®, developed by Physiomed Elektromedizin in Germany is an internationally patented therapeutic design which utilizes the forces of pulsed electrostatic attraction and friction to 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). Observed physiological effects of the therapy include oedema resorption - Jahr S Et Al (2008) The therapy also limits the production of inflammatory mediators, especially during the treatment for chronic pain and more so during the treatment of fibromyalgia - Janik, H. et al (2010) for strengthening of the cutaneous tissues - Korkina Et Al (2007), for stimulation of the wound healing process Mikhalchik E, Et Al (2005), Trybulski R (2008).
