3. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
3.1
Cycle differences & use
The Total Treatment given to the patient by the Lympha Press Plus can include up to
six program Steps. Each step runs a specific Cycle. The combination of cycles for a
treatment program, can provide maximum effect with a good feeling for the patient.
The cycles are: Lympha, Gradient12, Wave, Ballancer, and Pre-Therapy.
Your device comes set up with a typical program as follows:
Pre-Therapy: To open the lymph junctions prior to starting main treatment.
Lympha: The main treatment.
Ballancer: To give the patient a smooth massage, in order to release stresses from the body.
!
NOTE:
In order to make your own treatment program, see para. 7 Programming the
device.
I.
Lympha – A cycle that applies a sequential pressure along the limb, from distal to
proximal. This cycle is for the treatment of Lymphedema.
II. Gradient12 - A gradient cycle similar to the Lympha cycle used for the same purpose,
but the user can set the pressure for each cell in the garment. The device ensures a
positive gradient of pressure from distal to proximal. Minimum gradient is 1mmHg.

III. Wave – A smooth peristaltic pressure around the limb, which flows upward from distal
to proximal This cycle is recommended for treating venous disorders, mild non-chronic
edemas, post operative, post traumatic, geriatric edemas, leg ulcers, etc, as well as cases
of Lymphedema and focal discomfort due to lesions or scar tissue. The cycle progress
derives from pressure level, i.e. the next cell of the garment will inflate only after the
previous one has gained the requested pressure.
IV. Ballancer – The cycle works like the Wave, but is based on speed and not on pressure.
Each cell will inflate within a fixed time depending on the requested speed. The regular,
wave like motion of the Balancer cycle is very relaxing and is recommended for the
improvement of circulation and lymphatic drainage.

V. Pre-therapy – A special cycle that helps empty the proximal lymphatics prior to starting
the standard distal to proximal treatment cycles. Opening these junctions assists the
lymph liquids to flow upward on the treated limb. The cycle works like the Wave, starts
close to the lymph junction (the upper side of the limb) and flows upward. Then it starts
again at the lower point and flows upward. The cycle continues that way, until it starts
from the most distal point of the limb, flows upward until reaching the proximal point
and then stops.

Safety features
3.2.1. Safety valves
The line of the pressure that comes from the compressor is protected by a mechanical
Safety valve that doesn’t let the pressure in the device to rise over it’s value. A sound
like a low horn will tell you that this Safety Valve is working, allowing the extra air out
through the valve.
3.2.2. Normally opened valves system
Normally Open Valves System means that in case of electric break or power failure, all
valves will open, letting out the air pressure from all the cells of your garments and
allowing the garments to passively deflate.
3.2.3. “Watch Dog”
In case of any malfunction in the program Software, an electric safety device called
“Watch Dog” will identify the problem and stop the treatment immediately, allowing the
air pressure to deflate from the garment. The message “ChkSum Err” will be displayed.
3.2.4. Emergency shut down
In case of emergency, or if the patient experiences discomfort and feels the need to cease
treatment immediately, just shut down the ON/OFF switch. All valves will open,
allowing the air pressure out and deflating all the cells of your garment.
Figure 8 - Off/On Switch
3.2.5. Single Connection Option
The 12-prong pin air plug is shaped asymmetrically and features a positioning mark. This
is in order to ensure correct connection to the device. The plug pins enable easy
connecting/disconnecting. In cases where the operation must be discontinued, the plug
can be pulled out easily to deflate the existing pressure in the air compartments
Figure 9 - 12 Prong plug with red arrow (positioning mark)
3.2.6. Air Compartment Identification Numbers
Identification numbers are affixed to the air hose tips to enable the operator to ascertain
the proper inflation order.

5. PREPARATION
5.1
Applying a cotton inner sleeve
Cover the limb with a cotton inner sleeve as described in para. 4.8.7. These cotton inner
sleeves are available from your Lympha Press dealer.
5.2
Which compression garment should you use?
Your local dealer will assist in selecting a compression garment of the appropriate size
for optimal treatment results. The tighter the fit, the more effective the treatment. Many
different size compression garments are available.
The Zipper sleeves include three zippers for circumferential adjustment.. As the treatment
progresses the circumference of the limb changes. At that point, the sleeve can be
adjusted by switching to another zipper to improve the fit (See figure 13).
When using Velcro sleeves, fit sleeve tightly, using the appropriate Velcro strap. As the
treatment progresses the circumference of the limb changes. At that point, the sleeve
should be readjusted (See figure 14).

feeds one pressure compartment. The end fittings of the hoses are numbered. Always
begin by inserting hose number 1 into the valve furthest from the body (for the lower
limbs, start from the boot).
Continue attaching the hoses to the valves in increasing numerical order. Insert the hose
bundle connectors (in direction pointed by red arrows) securely into one of the
corresponding air socket receptacles (No matter which one) and secure safety screw.
When disconnecting a hose, always hold it by the fitting and use a simultaneous twisting
pulling motion to work it free. If you need to remove sleeve from the device (for cleaning
or other purposes) loosen safety screw and pull hose connector from the device. To
remove air hose bundle from sleeve, twist and pull fitting at the same time
!
5.3
NOTE:
It is possible to simultaneously operate two sleeves using the
additional air outlet located on the Pressure unit. If only one sleeve
is used, cap the air outlet not in use with a 12 Pronged Plug
supplied with the device.
Unattached hoses
If the number of hoses is greater than the number of compartments, Cap the unattached
hoses. To prevent air from escaping and subsequent loss of pressure, cap any unattached
hoses with the Double Female Plugs provided.(Each plug can cap two hoses) See Double
Female Plug in Unpacking.
For overlapping pants: Simply insert the two hose bundle connectors (in direction
pointed by red arrows), securely into the corresponding air socket receptacles and secure
the safety screws. To disconnect, loosen the safety screws and pull the connectors from
the device.

6. OPERATING PROCEDURE
6.1
Preparation
A. Place the device on a flat stable surface without a chance of slipping or falling, where
it can be easily reached by the patient from their seated or lying position during
treatment. Since the air supply is generated from the bottom of the device, do not place
the device on a tablecloth or fabric as this might block the free flow of air to the
device.
B. Before connecting the electrical cord to the device and to electric outlet, make sure the
voltage is suitable.
C. Insert the 12-pin hose connector to the corresponding receptacle in front of the device.
Make sure that the red arrow is facing up (The three grooves on the connector are
facing down) and secure safety screw.
D. Insert the hose tips into the corresponding receptacles in the compression garment in
numerical order, starting from the distal point and advancing toward the proximal
point. Plug the unused hose tips, using the plugs provided with the device. Each plug
can be used for two hose tips. For overlapping pants, first place the pants on the
treatment surface and position the device so that you can reach the device controls
easily from the treatment position. Attach the pants hose bundle connectors to the
device, and then put on the pants.
E. Fit the compression garment on the treated limb, using the appropriate zipper or Velcro
strap after the proper preparation (see para. 5.)
F. If possible, elevate the limb lodged in the sleeve to a horizontal position.

The system will continue functioning this way until the Treatment Time for the first Step
has elapsed and will continue immediately to the second Step’s cycle. Since the new
step’s cycle has different required parameters, the system needs to check the garment and
the patient limb dimensions once again. You will see that on the 1st display there is a
symbol “*”, until the ascertainment process is complete.

NOTE:
After changing pressure while the device is operating, the system will begin
“learning” limb again during the next cycle. This “learning” process generally
does not change the “feel” of the treatment.
Stopping the treatment
When the system reaches the step “End Program” it goes automatically into active
deflation meaning that all the extra air will be sucked out of the garment.
If you want to stop the treatment manually before reaching “End Program”, then you have
to press the START/STOP key. In both cases you will see the following screen.
Deflating display:
Deflating…
The device will stop working, when all extra air has been released, and will return to the
Main Menu display. If you don’t want to wait for the machine to stop automatically you
can manually stop the machine by once again pressing the START/STOP key.
!
NOTE:
You can stop the Treatment and get into active deflation by pressing the
START/STOP key any time during the treatment. Remember, in case of
emergency, or if the patient feels the need to cease the treatment immediately,
you can always just shut down the ON/Off switch. All valves will open,
allowing the air pressure out and deflating all the cells of your garment.
