LymphaTouch for Burns Management – Webinar

October 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

lymphatic system



Over the past 2 years, burns services around the UK have been adopting the LymphaTouch in their clinics for the treatment and management of burns scars.
The system was first introduced to Janine Evans at Morriston Hospital, Swansea, and since then, several systems are now across the length and breadth of the UK thanks to support from Dans Fund For Burns.
In this webinar we will;
– Discuss how LymphaTouch was first introduced to the burns services
– Feedback and case studies
– How, when, why they use LymphaTouch to manage burns injury
You will be given the opportunity to ask your questions to the UK’s most experienced users of the LymphaTouch for burns to help you in your practice.
What we will cover:
– How does LymphaTouch work
– Why do we use LymphaTouch to manage the burns patient
– When is LymphaTouch used
– Who can it be used on?
– Who administers the treatments?
– What types of burns do we use LymphaTouch for
