How it Works

The Flexitouch system moves lymph fluid to reduce swelling.

The system features a programmable controller unit with seventeen different treatment programs. When activated, the air chambers inflate and deflate sequentially, creating a wave-like motion that directs lymph fluid from areas of impaired lymphatic function toward healthy regions of the body where it can be absorbed and processed. Inflation lasts just a few seconds per chamber.

Now that the Flexitouch is listed on the Federal Supply Schedule, I am able to offer this option to my veteran patients with chronic edema. The Flexitouch device is able to provide superior in-home management of chronic edema. My patients that have received the Flexitouch have had remarkable outcomes and are very satisfied and comfortable with using the device at home.”
