What is a Lymphedema Pump?

A lymphedema pump is a medical device that pushes air into the multi-chambered compression sleeve fitted on the affected limb. When the air is forced in the sleeve, it applies sequential compression along the extremity from the foot or hand to the body, encouraging fluids to continue moving and not to pool. As a result, the pain and swelling reduce. These pumps also help in softening fibrotic tissues resulting in higher efficiency drainage. Lymphedema pumps should not be used in the following situations:

  • Severe peripheral arteriosclerosis or other ischemic diseases
  • Acute deep vein thrombosis or thrombophlebitis
  • Edema, secondary to congestive heart failure
  • Pain or numbness of the extremity
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Local superficial infection
  • Acute pulmonary edema
  • Displaced fractures
  • Recent skin grafts
  • Gangrene
  • Dermatitis

Health Products For You brings to you highly efficient lymphedema pumps that provide gradient, sequential, pneumatic compression. These pumps are beneficial for people with varying forms of edema. We also offer a full-fledged range of lymphedema sleeves that are compatible with lymphedema.

How does Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) help?

Lymphedema is a health condition that occurs due to impeded flow of the lymphatic system. As a result, fluid retention and swollen tissues are eminent in people with lymphedema. People may suffer from the condition after injuries to lymph vessels post-surgery or injury. Radiation treatments can also lead to lymphedema. Though the condition is not curable, early intervention does help to improve the condition.

Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) therapy is designed to assist blood and fluid flow inhibited by impairment or injury. Compression pumps are beneficial for sustained compression via specially designed sleeves to push the lymph fluids to flow back to the body's lymphatic system to relieve the symptoms. The pressure in the sleeve is more at the farthest point of the body and slightly less stress at the area closer to the body. The compression pump system consists of a pump and inflatable sleeves to be worn over the affected limb. These sleeves need to be properly fitted to get maximum benefits from the therapy. Ill-fitted sleeves may worsen the condition. Get yourself sized regularly from time to time in the course of treatment. The user can use the pump 1-2 times or as directed by the therapist for the long-term management of swelling disorders. Your therapist will ensure the frequency and duration of the therapy. Patient compliance is remarkably high as it is easy and convenient to use.
