Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England, May 04, 2015 -- Positive and ‘forward-thinking’ Clinicians in the field of Lymphoedema treatment and management are always such a joy to work with. One such Clinician is Lorraine Brown, Lymphoedema Consultant Nurse Specialist at Virgin Care’s Beacon Lymphoedema Service in Guildford. PhysioPod® wish to thank Lorraine for firstly taking the time to research DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy, allowing us the opportunity to present the therapy to her team and secondly for investing in DEEP OSCILLATION® units to loan to their patients.

"At the Beacon Lymphoedema Service we have four portable DEEP OSCILLATION® units which we loan to patients when it’s clinically appropriate. We train patients to use the machines to encourage lymphatic drainage and we’ve had some excellent results.

We’ve found this process really helps empower patients to care for their own Lymphoedema and patients have given us great feedback too."

Lorraine Brown, Lymphoedema Clinical Nurse Specialist for Virgin Care’s Beacon Lymphoedema Service in Guildford.

What is DEEP OSCILLATION® and is it proven to help Lymphoedema?
DEEP OSCILLATION® is a patented electromechanical therapeutic procedure using resonant vibration of the tissue with DEEP OSCILLATION® equipment from Physiomed, Germany. A special design makes it possible, using electrostatic attraction and friction, "to produce mechanical vibrations in treated tissues of the body, not only at the skin on the surface but also in deeper tissues" (Brenke and Siems 1996). Schönfelder and Berg (1991) refer to a "penetrating vibration and pumping effect deep into the tissue". The frequency can be varied in the range from 5-250 Hz. The treatment applicator and the patient are connected to the equipment (voltage source). A vinyl film between the applicator and the patient functions as a dielectric. This results in a weakly conducting capacitative layer between the contact surfaces. In action, pulsed electrostatic attractions draw the tissue to the applicator and release it at the rhythm of the chosen frequency. The therapist sets the pressure gradient, speed and direction of the movements. The patient can treat himself if appropriate. The treatment procedure is characterised by minimal external mechanical effects, which allows it to be used in cases of acute pain, fresh injuries and in treatment of wounds. Numerous pilot studies have demonstrated pain reduction, minimisation of oedema and anti-fibrotic effects. It is commonly used for the treatment of Lymphoedema (Jahr, S., Schoppe, B. and Reißhauer A. (2008) Effect of treatment with low intensity and extremely low frequency electrostatic fields (Deep Oscillation®) on breast tissue and pain in patients with secondary breast lymphoedema. J. Rehabil. Med. 40, 645-650). For other study references see section References in the PhysioPod website)
