Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this project is to prove that the Imp™SFB7+ (L-Dex U400) is equivalent to the
Imp™ XCA device in assessing Lymphoedema. The Imp™ XCA device is a simple device capable of
assessing Lymphoedema of a single arm. The Imp™SFB7+ (L-Dex U400) is a more complex device
capable of assessing Lymphoedema in a larger population of Lymphoedema sufferers. The
Imp™SFB7+ (L-Dex U400) will be developed to assess patients with Lymphoedema in their arms or
their legs. The Imp™ XCA and Imp™ SFB7 are both TGA approved devices. The Imp™ SFB7+ (L-Dex
U400) is similar to the Imp™ SFB7 the changes are to the software and user interface.
