Inhaltsbeschreibung: Come and learn how to apply a really effective technique that will make all the difference to the patient with a swollen hand!
Manual Oedema Mobilisation is a method of oedema reduction, based of lymph drainage principles. This method was developed by Sandra Artzberger (from the US) and deals with the reduction of oedema by means of an overwhelmed, but intact lymph drainage system. It is geared towards the therapist who wants to reduce acute oedema due to upper limb trauma, using a simple, yet effective method.
The theoretical framework of the course will include the development of oedema, types of oedema, anatomical and physiological aspects of oedema, assessments and the actual technique of oedema reduction. The practical sessions will include a demonstration of the method on each segment of the upper limb. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the techniques, by practicing on a fellow therapist. A demonstration of oedema bandaging and pressure garments for the upper limb will be included.
In addition, this full day course will provide guidelines, which will enable therapists to teach their patients or their spouses to practice these techniques at home.
