Motivate Patient Compliance and Improve Outcomes

Tracking changes in body composition – fluid, muscle, or fat – provides clinicians insight into disease progression and the ability to optimize treatment plans for success. Actionable data can also motivate patient compliance. Utilizing the SOZO® Digital Health Platform in your clinical practice can greatly improve outcomes and the quality of life for patients.1

Precise Data

Tape measurements are rudimentary and unreliable and cannot distinguish between fluid and tissue gain. SOZO measures and tracks critical patient data.

Actionable Results

Detecting changes in body composition ensures your patients are losing or gaining weight the right way and helps establish healthy targets.

SOZO® Digital Health Platform

SOZO’s powerful data to aide in the assessment and management of chronic disease delivers:

  • Early Detection – Detect changes and intervene early in the course of a disease
  • Treatment Monitoring – Monitor the impact of therapeutic interventions
  • Patient Education – Motivate patients to comply with treatment

L-Dex Analysis & Lymphedema Prevention Program

Offer your patients peace of mind.

  • Limb lymphedema impacts 1 in 3 at-risk cancer patients2, 3
  • In the largest randomized trial to assess lymphedema prevention in breast cancer patients, 92% of patients with early detection using L-Dex and intervention did not progress to chronic lymphedema1
  • Learn more about ImpediMed’s Lymphedema Prevention Program for early detection and intervention of cancer-related lymphedema utilizing L‑Dex and the Test, Trigger, Treat® protocol

The L-Dex score, only available from ImpediMed, is designed to detect lymphedema-related fluid changes in the limbs.

The Lymphedema Prevention Program (LPP) is a comprehensive program for early detection and intervention of cancer-related lymphedema.

Body Composition Analysis

Empower your patients to change habits and take charge of their health.

  • Commonly used metrics such as weight and BMI tell us nothing about body composition
  • Even with a “normal” weight and BMI, a person can have significant health risks
  • Tracking changes in body composition provides insight into disease progression or treatment success and motivates patient compliance

Body Composition Analysis provides a complete fluid, tissue, and metabolic analysis of the human body.

Segmental Analysis

Inspire your patients to care for their whole self.

  • Limb volume does not equal limp composition. Two limbs with the same volume can have different composition – fluid, muscle, and fat
  •  Sometimes your focus is on a single limb. Identify asymmetry between left and right limbs
  • A true measure of limb composition is needed to guide treatment decisions and evaluate impact of therapy

Segmental Analysis provides a detailed analysis of each arm and each leg.

Lymphedema Prevention

A randomized trial, meta-analysis, and six independent studies consistently demonstrate that early detection with L-Dex and intervention reduces progression to chronic cancer-related lymphedema.

L-Dex Validation

L-Dex is validated to detect lymphedema at its earliest, subclinical stage. It can detect fluid shifts as small as 36 mL (2.4 tbsp)4.

L-Dex Economics

Early detection and intervention of cancer-related lymphedema is shown to reduce the cost of care compared to treating advanced lymphedema.

Clinical Practice Guidelines

NCCN Guidelines® recommend patient education and regular monitoring for the early detection of lymphedema.
