Hello dear ones,
some time has now passed, but I still wanted to give you an insight into the 4th South Westphalian Lymph Day. The lymph day took place in Medical Center in Iserlohn-Grürmannsheide instead of. The Medical Center is a very special form of medical supply store, most of which is still manufactured on site. Iserlohn-Grürmannsheide is one of currently 13 locations.
Overview in the range of services
- Vehicle modifications suitable for the disabled
- Breast prosthesis supply
- Enteral nutrition
- Incontinence care
- Compression supply
- Medical Technology
- Orthopaedic Shoe Technology
- Rehabilitation technology
- Ostomy care
- wound care
During a guided tour through the Medical Center with Mr. Falk Peters (managing director) I was able to take some pictures for you to be able to gain an insight into what is in this house. I really have to say that I was more than impressed. Even if my report is primarily about lipoedema and lymphedema, I still don't want to withhold the pictures from you. Research and technology are now so advanced and I think that gives us hope.
But now back to the lymph day.

The program items were extremely interesting and well attended. We had the pleasure and were allowed to sit right at the front at the speaker's tables and of course got through everything particularly well.
I was allowed to take a lot of photos for you and would like to let them speak for you. I can really only recommend anyone who has such an event near them to go there once. It's just so great to be with people who are affected themselves or who are interested in the disease. You no longer have the feeling of having to explain yourself forever or the question arises as to why someone is looking at you. I was allowed to spend the day there with my sister and we had the opportunity to make great contacts and meet incredibly lovely people.
Let's start with the tour of the medical supply store:
KPE - complex physical decongestive therapy
When we come to the lectures or to the part of the lip ladies on a lymph day (that day was about the lymph) one of the most interesting, because it is especially good for us
4th South Westphalian Lymph Day in Iserlohn
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take photos of all the stands, but you got a glimpse of what a day like this could look like. I was definitely not the last time at such an event and I hope I made you want to take part in one of these great days. Finally, I would like to thank all the people who are planning these events and who take the time and fight for and with us! A lot has happened in the meantime and I found it super exciting to see how there is always new knowledge and aids with other diseases and fates thanks to research and progress.
These pictures are all of me and I was allowed to take them with the nice cooperation and support of and in the medical center Medical Center in Iserlohn Grürmannsheide. I would also like to thank you for that.
