    Abstract

    It would seem that the Thermo Cyclopad has many actions on the body system most of which are beneficial from a holistic point of view. This study indicates that the Thermo Cyclopad has a use in the management of patients with lymphoedemas of the legs.
    The most important finding of the study is the strong and very significant that the massage pad use had on the patient's subjective symptoms, on their ability to undertake the normal activities of daily life and on their quality of life. Longer-term use of the Thermo Cyclopad might provide benefits beyond those reported in this short study.
