On the bellicon®, lymph fluid does flow twice as fast
Prof. Dr. Nele Devoogdt, physiotherapist and coordinator of the lymphedema centre UZ Leuven
To test the effects of movements on the bellicon® on the lymph system, walking on hard ground was compared with the movements on the mini-trampoline. The aim of the experiment was to test which training accelerates the lymph flow faster. The measurements were carried out on a healthy test person with a normal body fat percentage and a body weight of 65 kg. At the beginning of the experiment, a contrast agent was injected into the feet of the test person in order to monitor the lymphatic transport using a special PDE camera. Then, the test person was instructed to walk at the rate of a metronome (92 beats per minute). It was investigated how many sets of 10 steps each are needed until the lymph is transported up from the foot to the knee.
