March 2016 - Lymphoedema Diagnostic Equipment for St Peters Hospital, Maldon and Nancy's Clinic, Halstead

The Trust has just delivered a Moisture Meter to St Peters which will assist greatly with understanding the development of lymphoedema in a patient, answering the question, ”Is it getting worse or is it getting better?” Normally this is done by measurement of the limb or other affected part of the body where possible but this device gives a far more accurate picture of what is going on and so helps to determine the most appropriate treatment. It is a portable device that will be used both in Maldon and Halstead as necessary.
