DEEP OSCILLATION® is an internationally patented, proven technology (8 PubMed studies) based on the effects of creating an electrostatic field in the tissue of the patient. The special structure of DEEP OSCILLATION® allows the creation of biologically effective oscillations in the treated tissue using electrostatic attraction and friction. In contrast to other therapies, the pleasant, gentle oscillations act deeply on the tissues of the body from the epidermis down through the conjunctive and adipose layers and into the muscles. Immediate application is possible following injury and from day one post operatively. The gentle nature of DEEP OSCILLATION® also reduces pressure on the skilled hands of the Practitioner, pressure is not required to permeate an 8cm depth and it is very effective for stubborn fibrosis.

3M is redefining the practice of compression bandaging for Lymphoedema intensive therapy. Extensive research, design and testing led 3M scientists to develop 3M™ Coban™ 2 Compression System – a breakthrough in compression bandaging with the potential to change the practice of Lymphoedema intensive therapy.
3M™ Coban™ 2 Compression System materials were developed with unique stretch and cohesion properties to provide ideal compression and help patients overcome the challenges of wearing bandages during Lymphoedema intensive therapy.
The compression system comprises two thin layers proven to provide the stiffness required to generate sustained working pressures/low resting pressures to reduce oedema equally as well as traditional bandages, without the bulk. Coban™ 2 stays in place for improved wearability, unique interlocking layers cohere to each other, creating an inelastic sleeve that conforms to the limb and reduces the potential for bandage slippage and discomfort. Patients can more easily perform daily activities because the bandages are lightweight, flexible and facilitate mobility. Plus, as the layers are so thin, patients may wear regular footwear and clothing. The system is latex-free, hypoallergenic and non-irritating which helps to protect and maintain skin integrity. Coban™ 2 is also easy to apply and remove with no need for extra padding.
In October 2015, the National Lymphoedema Framework Ireland (NLFI), was created under the umbrealla of the International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF). The NLFI Steering Group’s focus is to engage with the appropriate members/stakeholders, government and health care organisations in order to develop a strategy for Lymphoedema Services in the Irish Republic. The aim is to promote and support the establishment of a clinical pathway for management of lymphoedema in the best interests of patient care.
This has potential for market development and expansion, as industry brings expertise to the field and should be an important stakeholder in this development. The strength of the NLFI is being built on strong collaboration with developing partnerships from other countries, national lymphoedema patient & therapist associations, industry supporters, grantors and funders, donors and individual volunteers whose support is essential to enable our long-term vision for lymphoedema patients in this country be realised.
This website is available to you as a vehicle to highlight your company should you wish to be active in contributing to this vision for lymphoedema management into the future.
