Deep Oscillation Therapy


Deep Oscillation Electrostatic Drainage (DOT) – is a patented electrostatic lymphatic massage therapy and clinically proven and peer reviewed.

The DOT Personal Unit is treatment that is delivered through light vinyl gloves or via special applicators when self-treating.  This enables the user in self-management to reduce swelling, pain and can give a feeling of wellbeing. The Personal Unit has a lymphoedema setting but can also be used successfully in many fields of application including arthritis and fibromyalgia.  

The DOT can reduce pain, help with fibrosis, and scar tissue.  The treatment is gentle, and the relaxing vibrations can penetrate to a depth of 8 cm this includes all tissue layers including the connective tissue.

The beauty of the Personal Unit is that it is portable so you can take it with you wherever you go.

Speak to your Nurse Practitioner or Therapist to see if you can have a unit on loan at home if they have them in their services, some do, this gives you the opportunity to try before you buy. Or you could speak direct to PhysioPod, check out Physio Pod’s hiring terms.  Please note, PhysioPod always recommend you seeing an MLD DLT Lymphoedema Practitioner using Deep Oscillation before buying a unit to ensure a successful outcome is seen in treatment before investing.  This also provides the opportunity for PhysioPod to programme a free bespoke card based on the frequencies which have been used in successful treatment.

Treatment can be delivered by a therapist/parent/carer/family member.

The Deep Oscillation® Evident is used by NHS Hospitals in Lymphoedema Services and Clinics.  PhysioPod is an approved NHS supplier.
