Nottingham, Nottinghamsire, United Kingdom, October 02, 2015 — The Leeds Lymphoedema team has been using HIVAMAT® 200 (DEEP OSCILLATION®) in conjunction with Manual Lymphatic Drainage for over 2 years.
“Manual Lymphatic Drainage as a stand-alone treatment gives good results over time..
Since introducing HIVAMAT® 200 we have found the results happen more quickly, especially when softening fibrosis or scar tissue. The advantage for the Practitioner is that they are still delivering a hands-on treatment, just with the addition of gloves. This enables them to feel the tissues as they work, adjusting their movements and depth of working alongside the frequency of the oscillations to obtain optimum results for the patient. It also still enables good control of their hands in delicate and small areas. The treatment is pleasant to receive and we have only ever had positive feedback. The treatment of Head and Neck oedema can be challenging for both therapist and patient. To be able to achieve effective results more quickly is hugely positive for the patient. It also frees up clinic slots to enable more patients to be treated. The use of HIVAMAT® 200 has definitely improved the overall treatment opportunities we can give our patients.”

More Information about DEEP OSCILLATION®
DEEP OSCILLATION® is used, where appropriate, for the treatment and management of Lymphoedema and Lipoedema
DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy can be used with gloved hands to another person or applicators, applicators also enable self-management of sporting and occupational injuries, early post operatively for pain, swelling and bruising, improving mobility and promoting a dynamic wound healing. For lymphoedema and lipoedema (where appropriate), for acute and chronic scar tissue and hardened fibrosis.
-DEEP OSCILLATION® gets to the core of the problem, non invasively and gently, saving the clinicians hands
-Permeating an 8cm tissue depth – see diagram
-Intermittent, patented, electrostatic, electromechanical therapy (not electrical stimulation)
-Safe over implanted pins and plates
DEEP OSCILLATION®, developed by Physiomed Elektromedizin in Germany is an internationally patented therapeutic design which utilizes the forces of pulsed electrostatic attraction and friction to provoke oscillations, which act deeply on the tissues of the body from the epidermis down through the conjunctive and adipose layers and into the muscles. Hernandez Tapanes et al (2010) were able to prove, by diagnostic ultrasound, penetration of the oscillations up to an 8cm depth (see diagram). Observed physiological effects of the therapy include oedema resorption – Jahr S Et Al (2008) The therapy also limits the production of inflammatory mediators, especially during the treatment for chronic pain and more so during the treatment of fibromyalgia – Janik, H. et al (2010) for strengthening of the cutaneous tissues – Korkina Et Al (2007), for stimulation of the wound healing process Mikhalchik E, Et Al (2005), Trybulski R (2008).
