Lymphapress is a medical device used for lymphatic drainage therapy, which improves lymphatic circulation and treats conditions such as lymphedema and swelling. It typically involves the application of compressed air to a specialised garment worn on the affected body part, producing a gentle massaging effect to stimulate lymph fluid movement.
Three lymphapress therapy cycles are common:
Pretherapy Cycle: The garment is briefly inflated with low pressure to guarantee a comfortable fit and prepare the limb or body part for treatment.
Lymphatic Drainage Cycle: The prime treatment cycle inflates and deflates garment air chambers. This rhythmic compression promotes lymphatic circulation and reduces edoema.
Rest Cycle: After lymphatic drainage, the garment is deflated and removed after a short rest cycle to maintain limb pressure.
These treatment cycles can be tailored to the patient and condition. Promote lymphatic flow, minimise edoema and improve tissue health.
