Deanna’s Story

deanna's story

Deanna has lymphedema in her right leg, resulting from foot surgery 20+ years ago. As a patient, she brings a uniquely personal perspective to her profession as a lymphedema therapist. Through her ongoing search for effective, patient-friendly treatment methods she has found unprecedented relief for herself and her patients using the Flexitouch® System.



Individual results will vary.
The Flexitouch System is intended for use by patients who are under medical supervision for the treatment of lymphedema, primary lymphedema, post mastectomy edema, edema following trauma and sports injuries, post immobilization edema, venous insufficiencies, reducing wound healing time, and treatment and assistance in healing stasis dermatitis, venous stasis ulcers, or arterial and diabetic leg ulcers. The Flexitouch System should not be used if you have pulmonary edema, thrombophlebitis, congestive heart failure, deep vein thrombosis, episodes of pulmonary embolism, infections and inflammations, acute cancer, or conditions in which increased venous and lymphatic return is undesirable. The Flexitouch trunk accessory should not be used during pregnancy.
