PhysioPod® met Karen Taylor, Head Nurse, Lymphoedema Services at Hospice Isle of Man whilst exhibiting at The BLS Conference in October 2014. After seeking the opinion of other Lymphoedema Practitioners regarding DEEP OSCILLATION® treatment, the Hospice decided to invest in the equipment to enhance their existing range of treatments. This will be the first time the therapy is available in The Isle Of Man, other fields of application include injury management and post surgical rehabilitation.
