The lymphedema treatment journey begins when a patient experiences symptoms and seeks a lymphedema diagnosis. More than 10 million Americans and millions more around the world have this chronic and life-changing disease.
The lymphatic system is the human body’s primary drainage system and serves the vital role of filtering fluids to promote body-wide health. When the lymph nodes or other lymphatic structures are damaged, fluid flow is restricted and the patient experiences swelling, hardening or thickening of the skin, increased risk of infections, and limited mobility.
For a lymphedema doctor, the journey starts from the other side – making a patient’s lymphedema diagnosis and searching for the best possible treatment regimen. Early diagnosis is critically important in preventing lymphedema from progressing in the body.
Whether you’re a patient who needs lymphedema treatment options or a doctor advising patients on therapeutic solutions, this article addresses why Lympha Press is an excellent option, plus where to buy lymphedema pumps.
Why Choose Lympha Press?
When selecting a lymphedema pump, it’s essential to choose one that suits the person’s lymphedema diagnosis and optimizes their treatment. Not all pumps are designed for ease of use and some are prone to errors, like allowing wrong-way flow.
The Lympha Press is internationally recognized for its advanced design and ease of use. It’s based on the principle of treatment elements of complete decongestive therapy (manual lymph drainage, compression), promoting restorative fluid flow while supporting maximum patient comfort. It uses rapid cycling with a series of overlapping chambers that apply directional waves of massage and prevent any lymph backflow.
While lymphatic pumps are sometimes called leg pumps, the Lympha Press offers a full range of upper body and lower body garment options for the legs, abdomen, trunk, back, and chest. Select from a variety of therapeutic functions to fit the doctor’s orders:
- Post-Therapy Focus
Patients sometimes express uncertainty about using a compression pump for the first time, but Lympha Press quickly eases any concerns due to its user-friendliness. It has straightforward controls, easy-to-read displays, and simple on-off functionality. There’s no learning curve; just slide into the garment like you would a jacket or boot, make a setting selection, and relax while it does its work.
Lympha Press garments are also fully customizable for an individual fit with options for people with a wide range of sizes and body shapes, including amputations. Anyone can find the perfect fit and rely on Lympha Press for independent at-home use.
Where to Buy Lymphedema Pumps
Please note that lymphatic compression pump systems are medical devices, so a doctor’s order is required to obtain one. If you have lymphedema, contact your doctor or connect with a pump provider to start the ordering process.
