Lymphoedema in the arm of a breast cancer patient

Device for Modulating Lymphatic Pumping

The current standard of care for lymphoedema is complex decongestive therapy (CDT), which is a combination of compression therapy, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), exercise, and skin care.  Using our validated computational models of lymphatic pumping, we discovered that an external pressure below the pressure inside of the lymph vessel (or a positive transmural pressure) maximises […]
