JOHANNESBURG :  25 and 26 AUGUST 2018

DURBAN : 27 and 28 OCTOBER 2018

PORT ELIZABETH :  17 and 18 NOVEMBER 2018

I would like to highlight the fact that this course will cover far more than just Lymphoedema.  Oedema management in relation to the following senarios will also be covered:

  • Venous insufficiency / circulatory conditions
  • Early cardiac failure
  • Post Orthopedic surgery swelling
  • Post-cellulitis
  • Post-operative Haematomas

Post-surgery and radiation breast oedemas and seromas

Donnee Ness (PhD), our MOBIDERM trainer, has vast experience as a Lymphoedema therapist as well as extensive experience and success in using MOBIDERM in her practice. She is particularly passion about the fact that MOBIDERM is useful in the management/treatment of so many more conditions than just Lymphoedema and will be encouraging the sharing of MOBIDERM success stories, challenges experienced as well as creative solutions found around the use of MOBIDERM as an oedema reduction/management tool. The course content is very much focused on the use of MOBIDERM in the SA context.
