Used the first day following Caesarian Section the healing processes are stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation is inhibited, swelling is reduced and pain alleviated over a sustained period. Tissue renewal and high quality scar formation are clearly encouraged.

...I commenced treatment day 2-post delivery on my daughter’s abdomen and inguinal nodes to encourage the uterus to contract. I also treated her back over the area of epidural insertion, which was bruised and uncomfortable. (Caesarian programme). Post treatment my daughter reported feeling much more comfortable and by the following day was no longer experiencing discomfort in her back.
I also lent the unit to a friend of my daughter’s, who had a premature baby and was struggling with breast feeding (day 9 – day 19 post partum). She was severely sleep deprived, had a blocked milk duct on one breast and was on the verge of giving up breast-feeding. Using the unit daily (or twice a day if she could manage it) for 10 days on the galactosis programme she was able to unblock the duct without it developing into mastitis. Her comments were “the personal unit is so easy to use, the length of time one needs to use it for is manageable and most importantly it works and one sees results quickly”.
I would definitely recommend use of the personal unit to any new Mum”
Why choose DEEP OSCILLATION® for PostPartum?
The DEEP OSCILLATION® PERSONAL POSTPARTUM is a new, safe and highly effective proven device for postpartum breast pain and tension (plugged milk ducts), conditions which can hamper a woman’s desire to breastfeed. It also proves pain relief with faster and better healing of the surgical wounds after caesarian section; promoting a dynamic wound healing with softer, more flexible scars and is an efficient treatment option for post pregnancy related problems areas including; cellulite, stretch marks, back and neck pain, breast/cleavage and stomach lifting.
The DEEP OSCILLATION® PERSONAL POSTPARTUM is designed for professional, individual and portable use. It is handy sized and battery-operated ensuring flexible use whilst on the ward or back home with the new baby or babies! The illuminated graphic display unit and the single button control ensure effortless operation. It can be used in conjunction with the DEEP OSCILLATION® EVIDENT, a multi-functional device for the hospital or clinic designed for a clinical environment.
The DEEP OSCILLATION® PERSONAL POSTPARTUM therapy card contains pre-programmed treatment courses which consist of different treatment phases of varying frequencies as well as informative treatment tips and diagrams for use.
Non-invasive, non-traumatic and highly effective, DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy is based on the biologically effective oscillations created by gentle, low frequency, electrostatic pulses in the treated tissue. In contrast to other therapies, this therapy does not heat the tissue nor does it rely on electrical stimulation to get its very effective results (a circuit is never completed). The pleasant oscillations have a deep-acting effect on all tissue components (skin, connective tissue, muscles, blood and lymph vessels) without causing any pain to the new mother.
PAIN/TENDERNESS DUE TO PLUGGED MILK DUCTS IS ALLEVIATED
Comparisons of the treated and untreated breast revealed that the side receiving DEEP OSCILLATION® treatment showed considerable improvement on the third day after starting treatment. Only 4% of the patients reported spontaneous pain on the third day (compared to 75% of the patients who did not receive treatment). These results were similar for tenderness. DEEP OSCILLATION® is very effective in reducing swelling, only 18% of the patients who were treated still reported symptoms on the third day after starting treatment (compared to 94% who were not treated). It efficiently counteracts lymphatic and venous oedema and alleviates the resulting tension in a similar manner. The result is a reduction in subjective pain. Pain free lactation is then possible and the breastfeeding process normalizes.
HELP FOR PAIN AFTER CAESARIAN SECTION WITH IMPROVED WOUND HEALING
Used the first day following Caesarian Section the healing processes are stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation is inhibited, swelling is reduced and pain alleviated over a sustained period. Tissue renewal and high quality scar formation are clearly encouraged.
Mr Chris Griffin FRANZCOG MMED CMFM DDU Midland Ultrasound and Medical Services gave his thoughts on applying DEEP OSCILLATION® following C-Section
"I have used DEEP OSCILLATION therapy in the clinical setting post C Section and found it to be of great potential in reducing the pain and swelling after operating. Although it does not have a specific clinical trial background in the area of C-section healing, the therapy certainly appears to be of a great advantage to the patient. It is easy to use and understood by both patient and caregiver alike!"
ACTING ON OTHER POST PREGNANCY PROBLEMS INCLUDING CLINICALLY PROVEN TREATMENT FOR CELLULITE
The deep acting vibrations train the muscles through activation and relaxation and keep them taut and lifted. Stimulation of collagen production in the connective tissue activates cell regeneration and helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks. DEEP OSCILLATION® has been clinically proven to counteract all the pathological effects of cellulite. Even in chronic conditions, the treatment helps to disperse fibrosis and hardened tissue. As in all treatments of cellulite a healthier lifestyle with a good diet and exercise routine are recommended.
