Breast cancer survivors often face another challenge: swelling that doesn’t go away, also known as lymphedema.
Even as cancer treatment has evolved, many patients still go on to develop lymphedema. Lymphedema isn’t “just swelling.” A compromised lymphatic system can also lead to skin hardening and a compromised immune function that impacts not only daily activities, but psychosocial, economic and health outcomes.
Flexitouch Plus by Tactile Medical provides a comfortable, effective, at-home treatment designed to help lymphedema patients get back to their lives.
As with any chronic, progressive condition, early intervention and practical tools for daily management create the best results.
The Flexitouch Plus system is clinically proven to stimulate the lymphatic system. This advanced pneumatic compression device (lymphedema pump) gives patients a comfortable and convenient way to self-manage lymphedema, to help relieve arm, hand and upper body swelling caused by lymphedema with effective treatments.
