LympheDivas armsleeves so Different, Australia

I was in USA recently for a Klose conference (next update) and tagged on a visit to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Their therapists were so generous in sharing information such as this. Apparently, LympheDivas (USA) armsleeves are compression garments but with so ‘lively’ designs.  I will start to trial them, hope they deliver to Australia. If you are interested, this is their Online shop

Added 15 May 2012: These are now available in Australia now via LympheDonna Click on website.

Klose Lymphoedema blog

This is my take on USA’s Klose consulting.  I completed the Foeldi-Klose Advanced Lymphoedema  and Review will be attending their Klose conference in Denver Oct 2011! Yes, travel and time but I am still happy to grade them Value-for-money courses.  Follow them and training updates  in their blog here

Foeldi Advanced Lymphoedema Course

This was the best advanced refresher I have attended.  Professor Foeldi was on-hand with lectures and participate in our complex case presentations.  Lots of learning with Guenter (Klose Training), too.
