A New Solution to Musculoskeletal Trauma
“Get Better Faster”
Treatment for Acute Ankle & Knee Oedema
A solution to manage excessive or non-resolving oedema (swelling) and even preventing an expected level of oedema in situations that typically develops after Total Knee Joint Replacement or in trauma of the knee and ankle.
MOBIDERM® METHOD OF TREATMENT
Why is Mobiderm® Unique?
Unlike traditional compression used in swelling which works via compression to reduce filtration in the lymphatic system, Mobiderm® stimulates the initial lymphatic vessels whilst also providing compression which results in removal of lymphatic load & reduction of filtration.
What is Mobiderm®?
Mobiderm® is an innovative product designed for the treatment of venolymphatic oedema and is a complete care system.
Mobiderm® works on all forms of oedema. This could be from musculoskeletal trauma or post surgery. Mobiderm® has been marketed in Australia for the past 10 years as a treatment for Lymphoedema but was designed for all forms of oedema originally.
It is applied in a 3 layered system of either taping or bandaging
How does Mobiderm® work?
Mobiderm® reduces oedema by mobilising the subcutaneous tissues
MOBIDERM® provides a pressure differential between the pressed zone and its periphery, which causes a shearing effect and mobilisation of the subcutaneous tissues concerned.
Stimulation of the lymphatic system
Drainage of hematomas
Treatment of oedema & reduction of rebound oedema
Relaxation of fibrotic tissue
Decrease in inflammation and pain therefore increase in load and ROM
Mobiderm’s® structure made up blocks of open cell foam cubes encased on the non-woven material. The cubes are positioned mostly pointing on their edge which makes it possible to create compression gradients between adjoining areas with an alternating compression/decompression effect on application.
Due to the law of fluid dynamics, this induces displacement of the oedema from a higher-pressure zone to a lower pressure zone, with an action on venular reabsorption. This phenomenon is beneficial since bandaging with Mobiderm®, combined with a programme of exercises, can promote the macrophagic proteolysis mechanism, with fragmentation of the protein accumulation and, consequently, its reabsorption.
Mobiderm® creates multi directional corridors of circulation, like the organisation of the lymphatic system (fishing net) therefore a quicker and more efficient reach of the lymphatic capillaries and collectors.
Easy to Use
Faster Reduction of oedema
Easy to move in - lighter to wear
Reusable - Washable
Patient autonomy (able to self-bandage)
Where to use Mobiderm®
Mobiderm® can be used ANYWHERE you can either apply the 3 layered taping or bandaging system or the Autofit Garments.
The 2 most common applications of Mobiderm® are
Bandaging for the knee
Taping for the ankle
The following videos & PDF guides will show you how to use the Mobiderm® system to bandage the knee & tape the ankle
Mobiderm® Autofit garments can be more suitable and cost effective for longer term management of oedema or in the surgical setting. They are a purpose built garment that are washable and are simply applied by the patient themselves, by doing up Velcro tabs
We have two PDF guides available on their use:
Earlier this year we hosted a webinar series on the use of Mobiderm®
Our Mobiderm® and Trauma Webinar goes into detail the application of Mobiderm® in musculoskeletal trauma and orthopaedic surgery. It includes the clinical case studies we’re currently involved with using Mobiderm® in pre & post total knee replacement and be viewed here
Mobiderm Bandages are all reusable for multiple applications (same client)
BiPlast tape and Protective underwrap can only be used once
We have put together 2 Packs to get you started but all components can be purchased separately.
