Non-segmental Lymphedema Pumps:
These are the simple Jobst 7000 pump, and
the Huntleigh FlowPlus. They are the simplest
type of pumps out there. The boot or sleeve
have only one chamber, that inflates and
deflates. These pumps are the least effective
of any compression pumps on the market.
They require much more use per day than
other, more advanced types. There are also
the least expensive pumps to be found. For

Segmental Lymphedema Pumps
These pumps are somewhat better than the
non-segmental type pumps. They typically
have three or four chambers that inflate
sequentially. The sequential action of these
pumps is much more effective than the inflation
of a single chamber pump. Examples of these
pumps are the Huntleigh Flowpress, the Bio
Compression 2004, and the Circuflow 5150
pumps. For detailed information click

Segmental Lymphedema Pumps,
with calibrated, gradient pressure
These are the most sophisticated type of pumps.
The advantage of this type of pump is the
adjustable, gradient action of the compression.
The pressure in the sleeve or boot is the
greatest at the point farthest from the body.
Each chamber has slightly less pressure as
it gets closer to the body. This means that the
edema in the limb must move towards the body
because the pressure behind the edema is greater than the pressure in front of it. The pumps also have an advantage that the pressure can be changed, or tailored in each individual chamber of the sleeve. This provides much greater flexibility in treating Lymphedema. Areas on the limb that are sensitive to pressure can have the pressure alleviated from that site. For detailed information click Calibrated Pumps.
Some Lymphedema pumps come available with either Half Leg Boots, Full Leg Boots, or Arm Sleeves. While some Lymphedema Pumps only offer one size of boot or sleeve, Advanced Rehab Technologies offers many different brands of Pumps. We can fit anybody, of any size. We have some boots and sleeves that are adjustable in size. We can also have custom made garments made for patient of special needs. We have fit patients whose measurements have exceeded 45 inches around at the thigh. That is not a typo, 45 inches around one thigh.
