Project summary

Ultrasound technology to move fluids within the body.

What is the issue?

Lymphoedema is a chronic and painful disease affecting millions of people. Linked to a poorly functioning lymphatic system, it is characterised by a painful swelling of a limb or body region. Along with pain and discomfort, it can also lead to dangerous infections, restricted movement, depression, poor self-esteem, and an overall poorer quality of life.

Patients therefore, are forced into a lifetime of symptom management. This is made more challenging because existing solutions to symptom management can be painful, taxing, difficult, or overly burdensome. This limits the access most patients have to regular, effective lymphoedema treatment and can lead to even more significant health risks if left unmanaged. There is currently no treatment device that is capable of providing personalised lymphoedema treatment wherever and whenever the patient needs it.

What does the technology aim to do?

Cenofex Innovations is an early stage medical device company that uses a novel, proprietary ultrasound technology to move fluids within the body. By controlling the output of the individual ultrasonic transducers in the device’s flexible array, acoustic forces are generated and used to move subcutaneous Innovations aims to treat lymphoedema.

Designed with input from over 200 Lymphoedema Device delivers customisable, pain-free treatment using novel, proprietary ultrasound technology, empowering the user to control and monitor their lymphoedema.

In partnership with NSW Health, Cenofex Innovations will bring to market the only device capable of actively moving lymphatic fluid while incorporating a patient’s need for comfort, portability, and ease. This unique, innovative technology will transform lymphoedema treatment and return freedom, dignity, and functionality to the millions of patients living with this debilitating condition.
