Welcome to our web site.
What Causes Lymphedema?
Lymphedema can develop when the lymphatic system (closely related to the circulatory system) is malformed during fetal development (primary type), or when the lymphatic system is damaged by other conditions such as diabetes, poor circulation, obesity, trauma, infections, Post-Polio Syndrome, Parkinsonís, Multiple Sclerosis, stroke & more (secondary type).
What are the Symptoms?
Symptoms may include a tired, heavy or swollen limb, localized fluid accumulation in other body areas, poor skin integrity, wounds & discoloration of the skin over the swollen area.
Why our clinic is special.
Kinder Touch is the only dedicated Lymphedema center in the entire Capital Region of NY. We only treat Lymphedema and
complications as a result of Lymphedema and stock special bandages, compression garments and equipment exclusively for that use. We've recently added a special device called a PEROMETER
to perform highly accurate, digital measurements of limb volume
(size & shape), a device few facilities in the United States have.
