Pressotherapy in action

Here are Clive’s legs undergoing pressotherapy or mechanical lymph drainage for his Stage 5 Lymphedema.

A pump air-fills chambers in succession, creating a sort of wave motion up the leg.

The main result so far seems to be that he has to go to the bathroom multiple times in the night leaving little room for sleep.
