LYMPHA PRESS® INCREASES LYMPH VESSEL FUNCTION IN LYMPHEDEMA
This groundbreaking study is the first to demonstrate the direct effect of pneumatic compression on lymphatic vessel uptake and function in lymphedema affected extremities.
LYMPHA PRESS® COMPARED WITH IN-CLINIC MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE
This randomized trial compared Lympha Press® to MLD performed in-clinic. Lympha Press® and MLD were equally effective at reducing edema volume.
LYMPHA PRESS® USED TOGETHER WITH IN-CLINIC MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE / COMPLETE DECONGESTIVE THERAPY
Patients with severe lymphedema and shoulder pain were treated with Lympha Press® and in-clinic MLD. Treatment decreased arm volume by an average of 170 ml, improved arm mobility and dramatically reduced pain.
Intensive inpatient treatment with MLD, bandaging, Lympha Press® and exercise enabled a young patient to resume normal activities.
VOLUME REDUCTION AND MAINTENANCE WITH LYMPHA PRESS® AND COMPRESSION STOCKINGS
In this study, patients obtained safe and rapid reduction with Lympha Press® applied in an inpatient setting, averaging 45% loss in circumference. Follow up at three and six months showed that patients who were compliant with compression garments maintained 50% or more of their reduction.
Follow up of a group of 49 patients showed that treatment of lymphedema with Lympha Press® and compression stockings was associated with long-term maintenance of reduced limb girth in 90% of patients.
LYMPHA PRESS® FOR LYMPHEDEMA MANAGEMENT AT HOME
This survey found that 100% of patients using pneumatic compression in the home rated pneumatic compression more effective than self-applied MLD, bandaging, elastic/rigid and quilted compression.
This review article summarizes the uses, recommendations and benefits of pneumatic compression therapy at home, including selection of appliances and types of patients for which this modality can be especially beneficial.
LYMPHA PRESS® FOR TREATMENT OF LIPEDEMA
In this study, treatment with MLD, compression therapy and Lympha Press® with Lympha Pants ® reduced pain associated with lipedema.
LYMPHA PRESS® FOR PAIN RELIEF
In this study, compression with Lympha Pants® and Lympha Press Optimal® reduced the perception of experimental pain stimulus applied to the hands, showing that large-area lower-body compression may have an analgesic effect.
LYMPHA PRESS® FOR TREATMENT OF LYMPHATIC FILARIASIS.
Lympha Press® treatment effectively reduced severe lymphedema caused by lymphatic filariasis, and significantly reduced the incidence of adenolymphangitis in these patients. The effect was not maintained after treatment was discontinued, indicating the need for ongoing therapy.
