The Hydroven 12 Series comprises of two systems, LymphAssist™ Homecare and LymphAssist™ Professional. Each system has been designed to offer patients and clinicians an effective treatment option to manage Lymphoedema. Both LymphAssist™ options are supported with a range of 12 chamber garments which are unique to the Hydroven 12 Series.
12 Chamber Intermittent Pneumatic Compression System
LymphAssist™ Professional is an advanced Intermittent Pneumatic Compression system (IPC) which has been designed to offer clinicians a multi modal treatment option to manage Lymphoedema and associated conditions.
Developed in conjunction with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapists, Lymphoedema specialists and Tissue Viability nurses, the LymphAssist™ Professional delivers a gentle and effective treatment for each of your patients.
In addition to the management of Lymphoedema, LymphAssist™ Professional is effective in the treatment of the following conditions when combined with an individualised monitoring program:
- • Acute and chronic wound management
- • Chronic venous insufficiency
- • Management of Oedema
Choice of three automatic treatment profiles
The LymphAssist™ Professional system comprises an intelligent pump and a range of multi chamber arm or leg garments capable of delivering three types of treatment options.
The unique LymphAssist™ Professional mode replicates the basic principles of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD). The automatic pressure and multi chamber sequencing helps to promote efficient fluid transfer through the patient’s lymphatic system.
This gentle ‘directional’ rhythmic massaging stimulates the lymphatic vessels encouraging them to transport proteins and waste products away from affected areas.
Graduated Sequential Therapy
The graduated sequential therapy provides a controlled pressure differential between adjacent chambers in each garment. This therapy helps restore the natural hydrostatic balance of the limb being treated.
Wave therapy produces a gentle peristaltic cycle for those patients who may be unable to tolerate graduated sequential compression.
The flexibility of this ‘three in one’ approach provides clinicians with the confidence that the treatment can be tailored to suit the clinical indications and patient’s requirements. Each profile allows clinicians to optimise pressure settings and treatment times to deliver the most effective treatment for managing vascular conditions.
