As featured in MLDUK 'The Journal' Autumn and Winter Issues
Female, Age 46, Secondary lymphoedema of the breast
... She developed lymphoedema of her right breast soon after radiotherapy and was in a lot of pain, also due to scar tissue and cording. After the first treatment with MLD and DEEP OSCILLATION® Naomi found relief from the pain and discomfort and her breast no longer felt hard and heavy. She found the treatment itself very relaxing and soothing. Naomi's oedema is now managed with regular MLD with DEEP OSCILLATION®, compression, skin care and exercises.”

- 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).
