First ever app designed to aid in the measure and montioring of oedema of the limbs, Lymphoedema.


LymVol® has been specially designed and developed to help Lymphoedema professionals measure and calculate the limb volume of those affected by oedema.

The method of calculation used in this application is a recognised mathematical and medical standard for measuring limb volume. It is calculated through the measure and addition of cyclindrical 4cm sections of both the Distal and Proximal for each limb.


The app also includes a BMI calculator and a complete set of instructions on how to measure limbs accurately and effectively.

Results of calcuation include:

  • Distal, Proximal and total volume(s) for each limb.

  • Total excess in mls and as a percentage for affected limb.

  • Difference in volume in mls, as a percentage and as a ratio for both Distal and Proximal.

  • Distal/Proximal ratio.

LymVol® was designed and developed by the Lymphoedema Training Academy which is backed by a team of leading experts with over 240 years collaborative experience. With the Lymphoedema Training Academy, you can be sure of the most evidence-based practice and training in the field.
