How It Works

This is the only technology specifically designed to apply effective pressure to the skin, subcutaneous tissue and connective tissue of the deep dermis (the areas where the edema can accumulate and where fibrosis can build up). That is why the high and low pressure exerted by our products is such an effective method for treating lymphoedema.

The technology works by applying high and low pressure points to the affected area. The high points force excess fluid into the area of low points, forming channels for which the lymphatic fluid can be removed naturally through the lymphatic and venous system. Flat compression garments constricts the effected area, often causing the lymphatic system to obstruct further.

This concept is so unique that it was awarded a patent by the U.S., Canadian and Australian Goverments.

We are the exclusive Australian distributor of this product.

The red dots are the highs and lows made from the inner lining reducing the thickened tissue and creating lymph channels for the fluid to move through easily.
