Perth Lymphoedema Therapist Networking Group
We meet around the second Tuesday of every second month.
Dates are subject to change depending on availability.
I would be good to have more reps show some of the things that are available, so if you have contact with a rep from a lymphoedema service let me know and we can see if we can book them in. I hope more people could be involved in the organisation and creating topics and finding venues.
Last meeting for the year!
26th November 2019 7pm-9pm
Cancer council, Milroy Lodge, Plibara Lounge
15 Bedbrook Place Shenton Park WA 6008
Jobst Relax - Presented by Ellen Gulin
JOBST Relax is a clinically effective, custom, textured night garment designed to complement day time compression and other self-management tools in the maintenance phase of moderate to severe lymphoedema. It has the ability to reduce fibrosis and soften tissue. It was designed with patient lifestyle in mind with current night time options often being reported as uncomfortable, too warm , too restricting and itchy. I would like to share a recently published clinical paper by Tobias Bertsch who works at the Foldi Clinic in Germany and his findings in regard to JOBST Relax.
