LX9

Sequential Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (SIPC) therapy is the process of applying external pressure to the limbs to promote the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid from the extremities of the body. The LX9 device works using pneumatic compression in a variety of garments – arm, leg or abdomen and groin.

SIPC therapy should be used under the GUIDANCE OF A HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. Always USE ONLY AS DIRECTED and see your healthcare professional if you have concerns regarding your treatment.

Is a compression pump right for me?

Intermittent pneumatic compression may be useful for conditions that require improved circulation or the removal of lymph fluid build-up (or oedema) from the limbs or trunk. Speak to your lymphoedema therapist, wound care nurse, GP or vascular surgeon for their opinion.
The LX9 can be used in the comfort of the home yielding great results with 30 minute sessions twice a day.

Features / Benefits

Regular home management of oedema using SIPC can be more cost effective long term than one-on-one therapy sessions. We also offer a Rent Try Buy scheme. If you decide to purchase your machine, we will refund up to three months of paid rental off the purchase price.
Medi-Rent offers limb garments in the price of the rental, unlike some competitors who charge fees to purchase garments on top of the cost of the pump.
Pneumatic compression therapy is easy and comfortable. If you find compression stockings hot or difficult to put on, a compression pump might be the answer.

The LX9 offers the following features:

  • An intuitive digital screen which is easy to read and use
  • Six speed cycles (your therapist can explain which is right for you) or a continuous mode (max pressure of 80mmHg)
  • Four modes of treatment: pre-therapy; classic sequential; distal intensive; wave)
  • Variable pressure 10-140mmHg – TO BE SELECTED BY YOUR HEALTH PROFESSIONAL
  • A built-in safety mechanism to prevent users from knocking the pressure amount by mistake
  • Garments included in the price
How does SIPC work?

Intermittent pneumatic compression mimics the body’s manual lymphatic drainage. By applying pressure to the surface of the limb it promotes the circulation of blood/fluid throughout the body. In the classic mode, each chamber inflates and deflates sequentially starting from the extremity and moving towards the centre of the body.
SIPC provides best results when used in conjunction with compression stockings (SIPC removes oedema fluid and compression stockings prevent re-accumulation).

Why hire a compression pump rather than buying?

Whilst most of our customers have great success with the LX9 compression pump, it doesn’t suit some individuals. Therefore, our option to rent before you buy is an excellent choice to get started. You are also eligible to receive three months off the purchase price if you choose to go ahead and buy your device.

Testimonials

The pump is working incredibly, I saw my therapist recently and she said there has been a 17% reduction in my lymphoedema. I’m so happy that she suggested it.

Deb (Using the LX9 for 3 weeks)
I’ve been using a compression pump for lymphoedema for nearly a month now. This includes some very hot days when swelling is always an issue. Very happy with the machine.
