Hi everyone Does anyone have any experience of or information on Vibration/oscillation plates? My mother has Lymphoedema in her legs, she is unable to apply compression garments or the lymphoedema sleeves herself due to hand strength and would be unable to get anyone to do this on a regular basis. She is considering buying one of the plates and I have looked online for information and had no luck in finding any independent advice. She does not have any of the medical conditions which would make them unsuitable for her but I cannot find any information re benefits or contraindications in Lymphodema. Your experiences and advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks Cris

Hi I got one of these a while back and yes it has proved positive. It can only be used if the lymphodaema is secondary and not suitable to be used if it is primary. I don’t use it everyday and you need to take care of how you use them so as not to go dizzy or cause any damage to yourself.
The other thing I’ve found useful is a treadmill. I started off by walking at a very slow pace for 5 mins then over time increased until I found a comfortable pace and time for me.
