Negative Pressure Therapy for Pre- and Post-Operative Edema Management

"One of the functions of LymphaTouch (a negative pressure device similar to what we use in the studio) is based on activating the lymphatic system and transferring lymphatic fluid using technology, while in manual lymphatic drainage the same is done with the hands. Both have been found to be an effective method of reducing swelling fluid in the swelling area. Weber et al. et al. (2023) investigated how negative pressure therapy compares to manual lymphatic drainage for swelling after elbow surgery in randomized controlled trial. Negative pressure therapy compares to the same good swelling treatment as manual lymphatic drainage, but negative pressure therapy significantly reduced the pain sensation compared to manual lymphatic drainage therapy at two, four and five days after surgery."
