compression therapy and wound care.
2004 Fast Cycle Sequential Circulator
Four Individual Chambers with gradient pressure
Pressure can be adjusted in chamber #1 providing gradient pressure to chambers #2, 3, & 4
From Mego Afek is a unique treatment system for the most severe cases of lymphedema. Pressure range is 20-180 mmHg. The Lympha Press device treats lymphedema using physiological principles. Pressure is distributed into overlapping air compartments which are contained in a special sleeve. The compartments are sequentially inflated, from distal to proximal, massaging the limb in a proximal direction. The overlapping compartments prevent any gaps in treatment, to achieve a maximal and safe reduction of the lymphedema.
The treatment cycle starts by filling the distal compartment first and continues inflating the remaining compartments in sequence during the first 24 seconds until all are full. The pressure is held in all compartments for 2 seconds, then deflates for four seconds which completes the 30 seconds cycle. The cycle then repeats itself.
A wide range of garment sizes is available, for treating people of all shapes and sizes with varying degrees of lymphedema. Each garment comes with either 3 zippers or 3 velcro straps for size adjustment.
