The History Behind Lymph Africa

 

suzi-davey-lymph-africaThe founder, Suzi Davey OTR/L, CLT-LANA, CLWT, is a Lymphoedema Specialist from the USA and has been specialising in Lymphoedema and Wound Care since 1998 near Miami in Hallandale Beach, Florida. In having her own private Lymphoedema Specialty Practice she learned through trial and error what compression products worked for Lymphoedema, Oedema and Lipoedema patients. Her practice in Florida eventually had eight practitioners consisting of Physios, OTs, Nurses and Massage Therapists all collaborating and working together towards improving patients quality of life.

 

In creating a comprehensive Lymphoedema training program through Lymphatic Education Africa for treatment and management of Lymphoedema and wound care in South Africa, she recognised a need for more education on all brands of high quality compression products related to these patients. In her own practice in Florida, through frustrating experiences of other practitioners' improper fittings and patients facing struggles of maintaining reduction of Lymphoedema/Oedema, she researched and became a specialist in compression garment fittings for ready to wear and custom flat knit compression. She used various top quality brands manufactured in Europe and the USA.

 

Lymph Africa (Pty) LTD was founded in 2015 as Lymphatic Education Africa (Pty) LTD with the main focus on Lymphoedema EDUCATION and creating greater awareness in the general public and especially for medical doctors and for all health care professionals about the management options and treatment available for patients with Lymphoedema.  From creating more awareness, we recognised there was a great need for cost-effective options and availability including professional training in compression products available in South Africa and thus we evolved with two divisions today.

 

The concept of LymphAfrica.co.za was developed, and was launched in 2016. Our Mission is to provide high quality compression products and everything related to providing best quality care for Lymphoedema, Oedema and Lipodema patients. These products are made available to specially trained Orthotists, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Podiatrists and Doctors with extensive knowledge and certified training about lymphoedema. In order to provide quality Lymphoedema care across Southern Africa, we recognise the need for partnerships with various stakeholders. These partnerships will facilitate better Lymphoedema healing outcomes for patients and optimal financial risk management for funders of healthcare.

 

As LymphAfrica.co.za – we are international importers and exclusive re-seller of all high-quality compression products.  Our focus is to sell difficult to source products from Europe and the USA. We always provide great customer service while offering products at competitive prices.
