The modality has been around for some time however advances in technology mean SIPC is now achieving significant results in terms of limb reduction, skin integrity and wound management. It has gained particular traction as a treatment option that people can manage easily in their own home as part of their daily self-management in combination with other components of complex lymphoedema treatment.
