Veins, there is veins.
Yes I know. There are veins. I know, I know. Don't stone me. Usually I turn down pretty much all inquiries from companies, because I can't imagine what doesn't suit us or our concept. However, I found it really exciting to put the Venen Engel through its hearts and kidneys. When I was first diagnosed, I was provided with a check-out model trouser cuff and a jacket since my rehab, so I have been able to gain experience since 2010. Let's see what the sliding wave massage device can do.
Why I am testing it
Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have a lymph cuff. Usually they are approved and given on loan, but we know our dear health insurers. Sometimes they just stand across. In the case of lipedema, the effect of lymphatic drainage is called into question, which does not make approval any easier.
For me personally, there was another aspect that was decisive for this test. I haven't flown in over ten years, but when it came time to plan our honeymoon, I got nervous. Before my operations I sat in my trouser cuff every evening and, to be honest, I couldn't imagine flying away for three or four weeks without her. But you would almost need an extra case for this huge part. Most of the time we do not go on vacation where water is a substitute for the MLD. This is where the Venen Angel's handiness comes in handy and, in my opinion, offers a good alternative - especially when traveling. The leg cuffs and the device itself are unusually light and easy to fold, so just the thing for on the go.
Not only my personal motives play a role here, but also all the others that I am not aware of.
Who, if not we experienced lymphatic patients, can assess these sliding wave massage devices in their practicable function and ultimately advise those who need a well-founded assessment in their purchase decision.
There are several aspects that distinguish the Venen Engel from our well-known lymph cuffs.
- Air chambers
The number of air chambers in the Venen Engel is four, six or eight, in the cash register model 12 (but this is partly due to the fact that the cuff extends to the stomach).
- Pants and belly cuffs
To prevent genital and groin edema, full-length trouser cuffs are mostly used. However, the Venen Engel does not have a one-piece cuff, but instead offers a belly section in addition to the legs. To reduce this risk, and I recommend this practice in any case when using the cash register model, the body should be carefully angled before each use. The lymphatic drainage is not started any differently. It is best to have your therapist show you the steps you can use to activate your lymphatic system. Use it every now and then, it helps me in many a painful hour.
- Application pressure
The application pressure of the Venen Engel is 20–250 mmHG. In general, however, you should not exceed 80 mmHG, so the checkout models are limited to this level for home use. I asked the manufacturer what the reason for the missing lock was and he sympathetically admitted that they were trying to bridge any discrepancies in the fit. This means that with slimmer legs, the pressure can simply be set a little higher in order to achieve the full effect. If you slowly approach the right setting here, you can't go wrong.
- duration of use
The maximum time that can be set for this test device is 30 minutes. A daily application of at least 20 minutes is normally recommended.
The dimensions can be found in the following graphic. The total width can be expanded in 10 cm steps. The total length is 86 cm, which for me could be 1,81 cm longer with my 5 m. But I'm a small (well, big) exception. Yes, yes, I'm used to it.The dimensions of the belly cuff are 130 cm x 37 cm and are therefore suitable for a body size of approx. 95–110 cm. This could of course be a problem with obese sufferers. But an XL variant is to follow.
If, despite the good workmanship, something is wrong with your device, you can make use of the two-year guarantee. Of course, you also have a 14-day right of return.
The prices for the Venen Engel range from € 299 to € 840.

I have the cheapest model of the Veins of angel extensively tested and am seriously surprised at what it can do. During the application, however, I did not notice any shift in the edema or impaired removal of the lymph. Before each session, everyone was lymphted for all it was worth and I mostly left it at 20-25 minutes. Application time. I felt a pleasant pressure on my legs and felt a comparable relief and activation of the lymph, as with the usual trouser cuff. I can only make one recommendation for everyone who has been thinking of purchasing this device. It is a practical little helper and for what it costs, it can keep up with "the big ones". It is of course no substitute for the lymphomatics indicated for edema therapy, but it is still significantly better than nothing.
The material is really well made and I can't fault it other than that the cable inlets may loosen when stowed away and pulled out. However, that never happened during the sessions, so nothing to worry about. I have also had very good experience with the service. You answered all (even unpleasant) questions quickly and honestly and I find that very personable.
