Extremity System Testimonials and Studies


Testimonials

"We have 3 sessions left(at Chemo today) out of 12. No signs of any peripheral neuropathy at all so very successful. Having the 3 straps is essential to get it tight around her feet. Hands are no problem. We usually start at 4 then turn down to 3 as it gets too cold for her. We start 15 minutes before the Taxol, a one hour infusion and then 15 minutes after. Total time, 1 1/2 hours. We plan to donate the unit [CF-ES] to our infusion center. Not sure if you have reps but I would recommend calling on the infusion centers as this probably could be covered by insurance and every woman getting Taxol could use this."
- Dr. Ken

"The Soft Ice Cold Therapy Mitt is great for Neuropathy Prevention. I used this product during chemo for neuropathy prevention. Worked great!!
Larry D., Minnesota


"A friend of our daughter(31) just got diagnosed with triple neg breast cancer and will have to go through the same regiment as my wife did. My wife not only had no peripheral neuropathy, but had absolutely no changes to her nail beds( the oncologist was shocked)[CF-ES] .We found the straps to be very important for the feet.Thanks again,"
-Dr. Ken 

"He (Wife's Oncologist) was very impressed with the lack of neuropathy in my wife. Thanks again for everything. The system worked great."
-Dr.Ken

"The extremity cooling system is working well. Since I had gone through 2 rounds of chemo before I bought the system, I have some neuropathy in my hands and feet. I have used it for rounds 3-5 and will use it for my final round on Monday. I may have less neuropathy because I used the system for the majority of my treatments."
-Jackie, San Diego
