Female, Age 47 Secondary lymphoedema of the arm and cording


“In October 2013 the lady was diagnosed with right breast cancer. Immediately she had an axillary clearance followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Unfortunately the intervention left her with the problem of cording making the skin hard, red, painful and very sensitive to touch.  The cording in the right armpit around the scar tissue was very tender, swollen and causing restriction of the arm movements. I started treating this lovely lady with DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy via the HIVAMAT® 200. On the first 2 sessions I tried to work only on the proximal side of the cording, at the end of each treatment she felt relieved and had more flexibility of the arm. On her 3rd visit I started working closer to the cording and eventually on the scar tissue. She had altogether 6 treatments with me, which improved her arm movements and she started doing everyday tasks without any restrictions”

  • DEEP OSCILLATION® gets to the core of the problem, non invasively and gently, saving the clinicians hands
  • Permeating an 8cm tissue depth - see diagram
  • Intermittent, patented, electrostatic, electromechanical therapy (not electrical stimulation)
  • Safe over implanted pins and plates
  • No heat


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).
