How It Works

A lymphedema pump, also known as an intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) pump or lymphatic compression pump, is a medical device used in the treatment of lymphedema. Lymphedema is a condition characterized by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the tissues, usually in the arms or legs, due to impaired lymphatic drainage.

The lymphedema pump consists of an inflatable garment or sleeves that are wrapped around the affected limb(s), similar to the pneumatic compression device mentioned earlier. The pump is connected to the garment and operates by inflating and deflating the chambers in a sequential manner, applying gentle pressure to the affected limb to encourage the movement of lymphatic fluid.

The primary goal of the lymphedema pump is to stimulate the lymphatic system and promote lymphatic flow. By applying pressure and releasing it, the device helps to push the accumulated lymphatic fluid towards healthy lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes, assisting in drainage and reducing swelling.

Lymphedema pumps are often used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for lymphedema, which may include other therapies such as manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), compression bandaging or garments, exercise, and skin care. The specific settings and usage of the pump may vary depending on the individual’s condition and the recommendations of their healthcare provider or lymphedema therapist.

It’s important to note that lymphedema pumps should be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional experienced in lymphedema management. They can provide guidance on proper usage, fitting of the garment, and the appropriate pressure levels for each individual’s needs. If you have lymphedema or are considering lymphedema pump therapy, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare provider who specializes in lymphedema treatment for a thorough evaluation and personalized recommendations.
