On-site Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Pump Treatments
Intermittent pneumatic compression pump(IPC)
Intermittent pneumatic compression is the latest technology to reduce swelling, soften skin and improve tissue health. This is another tool that we use at the Menzies ProCare in Complete Decongestive Therapy . This is a relaxing, easy to use therapy whereby the patient sits while wearing an inflatable sleeve on the affected/recovering limb at the desired pressure for the limb and/or condition. This is connected to a intermittent pneumatic pump that inflates and deflates the sleeve which mimics MLD.
This doesn’t replace MLD treatments but does help to enhance lymphatic flow
