Selection of cuffs
You can connect up to 4 air cuffs to the device, up to 3 cuffs at a time.
Choose the cuff that is most suitable for your treatment!
Upper limb treatment
Lymphoedema affecting the arm is usually unilateral, i.e. it may usually be necessary to buy one arm cuff.
If you want to use the device as an athlete to improve muscle recovery, you may want to buy 2 arm cuffs so that you can treat both arms at the same time.
The arm cuff has a Velcro strap to secure it under your opposite arm.
Before buying, measure the circumference of your arm at the following points: wrist - forearm - upper arm circumference under the armpit. Once you know the measurements, you can choose the right size.
The arm cuffs are available in sizes M and L.
Green line and italic number: length in cm - Red line and bold number: circumference in cm
Lower limb management
There are 2 types of leg cuffs: knee-length or thigh-length. The thigh cuff is available in sizes M-L-XL. If the size is not right, a zip-in insert is available.
Half-length leg cuffs
This cuff is specially designed for the treatment of post-thrombotic syndrome. You can start using it 3-4 months after the thrombosis to treat the residual symptoms of the thrombosis. This cuff can only be used for lymphoedema if the swelling extends to the foot, up to the ankle. If higher than this, the long cuff is required.
Leg cuff up to the thigh
This cuff is excellent for the treatment of lymphoedema, varicose veins, post-thrombotic conditions affecting the leg. For athletes to improve muscle recovery. Depending on whether your oedema affects one or both legs, you can buy just one cuff or, of course, a pair. If the "basic" sizes are not suitable, you can "enlarge" the size with the expanders.
You should buy them if your lymphatic system extends all the way up to your thighs. In this case, your torso needs to be treated as well as your legs. You should fit the cuff like a belt, starting from where the top of the thigh cuff is. It can also be used to treat cellulite and cellulite - although trousers are more effective here.
Before choosing a cuff, measure the circumference of your lower limb at the following locations: ankle - shin - kneecap - thigh cap. Once you know the measured data, you can choose the right size.
H = half-length leg cuff - M-L-XL thigh-high leg cuff sizes available - Green line and italic number: length size in cm - Red line and bold number: girth size in cm
For the treatment of the upper thigh, hip, buttock and abdomen area, you can choose between two cuff types: pant and belt-like.
You need these cuffs if your lymphatic system extends all the way up to your thighs. In this case, you need to treat your torso as well as your legs.
Other uses are in beauty care, including cellulite, cellulite treatment, cellulite treatment and fat removal after cavitation (fat removal treatment).
The pant cuff provides a more effective treatment because it completely surrounds the thighs and buttocks.
Imagine a belted cuff as a miniskirt and consequently the inner thigh and lower buttocks are not treated perfectly.
The pant cuff provides an effective and fully circular treatment of the upper thigh, the buttocks and the lower abdomen.
It is the ideal device for lymphedema of the com- hip.
It has three rows of zippers so that its size (puffiness) can be adjusted over a wide range. In the diagram below, the numbers stand for: minimum - middle - maximum size.
Excellent for beauty treatment, especially for cellulite, cellulite treatment, cellulite treatment and after cavitation (fat removal treatment).
The pant cuff has a "built-in" air hose, i.e. no need to order a hose separately.
The cuff should be fitted belt-like, starting from where the top of the thigh cuff is. It can be secured to the correct size with Velcro.
A belt-style torso cuff is less effective than a trouser cuff, but cheaper.
It is also suitable for lymphedema treatment and beauty care, e.g. cellulite, cellulite, cellulite treatment.
Air hose to be chosen separately for the buckle
Before choosing a cuff, measure your circumference in the following places: abdomen, below the navel by a palm width - hips. Once you know the measurements, you can choose the right size.
P = pant cuff - M-L belted torso cuff sizes - Green line and italic number: length in cm - Red line and bold number: girth in cm
In some cases it may be necessary to combine cuffs, i.e. to use several cuffs at the same time. These combinations should not be used in cases of cardiac weakness, post-infarction conditions, cardiomyopathy, hypertension despite treatment.
Trunk and leg cuffs
Also for lymphedema and fatty edema (lymphedema and lipoedema) and for cosmetic treatments (cellulite, cellulite, cellulite, enhancing the effect of cavitation). This combination is cheaper but slightly less effective than the following.
Trousers and leg cuffs
An optimal combination for cosmetic treatments (cellulite, cellulite, cellulite after cavitation) and for the treatment of lymphoedema extending to the thighs and hips, as well as for the treatment of lipedema.
Treat according to the instructions of your doctor or therapist.
General guidelines for treatment:
- The lymphatic massage machine application is designed to improve blood and lymph circulation, which does not require high pressure, in fact it is specifically not good for high.
- Start with a lower pressure of 40-50 mm Hg for the first few treatments, with a treatment time of 20 minutes.
- Monitor the effect of the treatment and increase the pressure if necessary (but do not set it higher than 60 mm Hg).
- You can also increase the treatment time, but treat more often for 20-30 minutes rather than infrequently and for longer. The maximum total treatment time should be 120 minutes per day.
- Be patient! You can only measure the effect of a change after 3-4 treatments, so there is no point in 'rushing', changing every treatment.
|Symptom-Illness||pressure (mmHg)||Treatment time|
|Muscle recovery after excercise||80-100||20-30|
Dangers of improper treatment
- Pressure between 40-60 mm Hg is sufficient to help lymphatic and venous circulation. International medical studies unanimously recommend this pressure range.
- Treatment with a pressure higher than this will cause micro-injuries, which over time may cause the oedematous part to "harden". Too 'forceful, impatient' treatment can make you worse - so avoid using high pressure!
- Even more caution is needed after heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, heart attack. Never apply pressures higher than 40-50 mm Hg and use only 1 cuff at a time! Using more than one cuff can strain your circulation and lead to heart problems.
- Do not treat tumour tissue directly as you may help it to spread. But if you have a thyroid tumour, for example, you can safely treat your legs.

How to set up the Power Q-1000 Plus?
Start the treatment with a pressure of 40-50 mmHg and set the treatment time to 10-15 minutes.
Observe the effect of the treatment and increase the pressure if necessary (but never set it higher than 60 mmHg). You can also increase the treatment time. Treat it more often and briefly than for a long time. The total treatment time should not exceed 120 minutes per day.
Be patient! You can only measure the effect of the change after 3-4 treatments. Don't rush! It makes no sense to change after each treatment.
Dangers of improper handling
A pressure of 20-60 mmHg is sufficient to help the lymphatic and venous blood circulation. International medical studies consistently recommend this pressure range.
Treatment with a higher pressure will cause micro-injuries, which over time may cause the edematous part to “harden”. Too "violent, impatient" treatment can make your condition worse - so avoid applying high pressure!
Even greater caution is required after heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, heart infection. Never apply higher pressure than 40-50 mmHg and use only 1 cuff at a time! Using multiple cuffs can strain your circulation and this can lead to heart complaints.
Do not treat tumor tissue directly as it may help it spread. De pl. in case of thyroid tumor you can safely treat your feet.
