We are proud to announce our 2021 Premier Sponsorship of the Lymphology Association of North America® (LANA)! LANA is a non-profit corporation specializing in the certification of healthcare professionals who diagnose and/or treat lymphedema and related disorders. Lymphedema therapists are among the most important types of clinicians that AIROS works with daily. These type of medical professionals can treat patients and typically drive patient care strategies with patients’ physician teams. These strategies may include sequential compression devices and garments, such as the ones we provide.
Certified Lymphedema Therapists (CLTs) have completed training courses specifically for lymphedema with topics ranging from decongestive therapy to manual lymphatic drainage to anatomy and physiology. There are many medical fields that can be accepted for a CLT course, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, medical doctors, physicians’ assistants, and certified athletic trainers.
“The CLT-LANA certification is not only recognized but renowned both domestically and internationally,” says Gerry Makoid, CEO of AIROS Medical. “The LANA board and therapist members are a part of the heart and soul of the lymphedema community. We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with LANA and to driving collaborative efforts that enhance patient care.”
LANA’s website, https://www.clt-lana.org, serves as a resource for its members and those interested in earning a CLT certification. The website also allows patients to search for and find lymphedema therapists near them.
Our sponsorship will allow us to work with more lymphedema therapists across the country. We’ll be able to share and provide clinical information, take part in virtual (and hopefully in-person events), and present product information.
