Frequently asked questions

The CarePump device series differs from traditional stationary lymphatic drainage devices in terms of battery power supply, which allows the treatment to be performed without connecting to the mains. The device is also small in size, so it fits even in your hand luggage.

There is no training required to use CarePump devices. In case of any questions or doubts, our physiotherapists are at your disposal.

The lymphatic drainage treatment should be performed according to the needs - it can be performed even daily.

The use of CarePump devices is intuitive - they have been designed for users without professional education. A quick start guide is included to help you to correctly attach the cuffs without having to delve into the contents of the manual.

The pressure is set "to feel" - the pressure generated by the pumping cuffs should be gently felt. Thanks to this gentle effect, individual fragments of lymphatic vessels shrink faster and thus pump more lymph. In the case of people with sensory disturbances, the choice of parameters of the procedure should be decided by a doctor or physiotherapist.

Thanks to the double hose splitter, which is included in the set, two cuffs can be attached at the same time. If you perform the procedure with only one cuff, its hose is plugged directly into the socket of the central unit located at the back of the device.

Each CarePump is equipped with 2 lower limb cuffs as standard. In addition, there is a possibility to buy additional cuffs for:

  • upper limb - for women after mastectomy, people with swelling and circulation problems in this area or athletes who strain their hands during training,
  • short pants - for women who want to firm up and minimize cellulite in the thigh and buttocks area, athletes who strain this area during training,
  • a hip/belly belt - for people with stagnant lymph in this area, using lymphatic drainage to slim down this part of the body

The cuffs are in universal size - for people who are slim after being filled with air, they fit perfectly to the body, whereas for people with a larger circumference of legs or hands, there is a possibility to buy a widener. Dimensions for individual cuffs are given on product cards.

The devices (control units) have a 2-year warranty. The operating parts: cuffs and air hoses are subject to complaint for 1 year.

The battery is an operating element - the number of charges is not less than 500. The charging cycle is understood by connecting the charger to the device each time. In order to extend the life of the battery, it is recommended to discharge it until the red light comes on. Then the full charging cycle should be performed again. It is also not recommended to use the device during charging.

Yes, it is possible to test the device before making a purchase decision. For more information, please contact the Customer Service Department.

This is the number of sections into which the air-filled cuff is divided during the treatment. The larger the number of chambers in the cuff, the more precise the massage is, which allows to achieve better results.

  • Mode A is the "warm-up" mode - It is recommended to use before using the other modes.  The pressure generated during the treatment with this mode is about 20% lower than that selected on the panel. This mode is also recommended for relaxation and prophylactic action.
  • Mode B - pumping 1 chamber each with pressure retention in the previous chambers is recommended in case of oedema and post-traumatic therapy. 
  • Mode C - pumping each of 2 chambers with pressure deflation in the previous 2 chambers - reduces swelling.
  • Mode D - pumping all chambers at the same time, followed by their deflation - this mode is especially recommended in case of post-workout regeneration. 
  • It should be noted, however, that the above recommendations are not rigid - lymphatic drainage is a form of treatment in which it is particularly recommended to observe one's own body and adjust the parameters based on subjective feelings. The above does not apply in the case of advanced lymphatic, venous or fat swelling, when pneumatic lymphatic drainage is only an element complementary to a comprehensive anti-oedematous therapy - here it is worth to consult your doctor/physiotherapist in order to set the parameters of the procedure. 

Yes, it is recommended to perform the treatment before the start of the training as an addition to the warm-up, which contributes to minimizing the risk of injury.

It is a system of "overlapping" of individual chambers in the cuffs, which guarantees more precise movement of the lymph and prevents it from moving back during the procedure. 

The recommended treatment time is not less than 30 minutes. As far as the upper limit of the procedure is concerned, there are no studies on this subject - in case of more advanced swelling, two 60-minute procedures will bring better results than one performed for 120 minutes.

The basic indications for using lymphatic drainage include: 

  • treatment of oedemas (evacuation of oedema fluid, improvement of tissue nutrition in various types of oedemas);
  • after mastectomy - causing irreversible damage to the lymphatic system and the oedema;
  • after liposuction - to remove post-surgical tissue saturation; 
  • in the treatment of complications after oncological treatment in the form of oedemas;
  • in sport regenerations.
