Lymphedema Links

"The National Lymphedema Network (NLN) is an internationally recognized non-profit organization founded in 1988 to provide education and guidance to lymphedema patients, health care professionals and the general public by disseminating information on the prevention and management of primary and secondary lymphedema. The NLN is supported by tax-deductible donations and is a driving force behind the movement in the U.S. to standardize quality treatment for lymphedema patients nationwide. In addition, the NLN supports research into the causes and possible alternative treatments for this often incapacitating, long-neglected condition."

Heres an excellent site that I found with a forum and alot of great information.

I'll be adding more soon.

For people suffering from lymphedema, life can be challenging. Many lymphedema patients have been able to get relief through lymphedema pumps. These compression pumps work with lymphedema sleeves or garments to exert pressure on the affected limb in a gradient compression or just sequential. This compression on the limb provides significant relief for lymphedema victims. Huntleigh Healthcare manufactures two popular compression pumps—Flowtron Hydroven 3 and the Huntleigh FPR Lymphedema Pump. These compression pumps can be purchased for under $450.00 each. Lymphedema garments are sold separately. These compression pumps are medical devices and therefore require a doctor’s prescription to order. Click on the links to get more information about getting relief from lymphedema.
