It is not uncommon for the feet or hands to become swollen when a person sits or stands for a long time in a hot environment. This swelling is called heat oedema. Heat oedema is a cutaneous condition characterized by dependent oedema from vasodilatory pooling. Heat causes the blood vessels to expand (dilate), so body fluid moves into the hands or legs by gravity.
After one treatment with the pump, there was a remarkable difference in sizing.
Lymphatic Care also has available treatments to assist the management of oedema. These treatments can be found on our website www.lymphaticcare.org
