Head and Neck
90% of head and neck cancer survivors have lymphedema. Flexitouch Plus is the only pneumatic compression therapy for treating head and neck lymphedema.
The Flexitouch Plus system is clinically proven to decrease swelling and improve swallowing. It gives cancer survivors a comfortable and convenient way to self-manage their lymphedema at home.
How It Works
In the first randomized control trial of home management of head and neck lymphedema, Vanderbilt researchers found statistically significant improvements with the user of Flexitouch.
