The study analyzed upper and lower extremity lymphedema patients with cancer related (2A) and non-cancer related lymphedema (2B) treated with the Flexitouch System. The study evaluated use of the Flexitouch System as a tool for the treatment of lymphedema. The study documented a reduction in the rate of cellulitis episodes following use of the Flexitouch System for the treatment of lymphedema. The Flexitouch System is not used for nor intended for use to treat cellulitis.

How it Works

The Flexitouch Plus system moves lymph fluid to reduce swelling.

The system features a programmable controller unit with numerous program options to meet individual patient needs. When activated, the air chambers sequentially inflate and deflate, creating a wave-like motion that directs lymph fluid from areas of impaired lymphatic function toward healthy regions of the body where it can be absorbed and processed naturally. Inflation lasts just a few seconds per chamber. Only one chamber is fully inflated at any one point in time, providing a treatment sequence and duration similar to manual therapy.

Now that the Flexitouch is listed on the Federal Supply Schedule, I am able to offer this option to my veteran patients with chronic edema. The Flexitouch device is able to provide superior in-home management of chronic edema. My patients that have received the Flexitouch have had remarkable outcomes and are very satisfied and comfortable with using the device at home.”
