Clinical Trial

Efficacy Verification in Early Diagnosis and Management of Lymphedema through Home Body Water Analyzer

IRB Protocol Number STU00216604


Lori Bravi


Receive early intervention therapy to detect arm/hand lymphedema through the measurement of body water.

The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is comparing water body scales used in the clinic and at home to detect early onset breast cancer-related lymphedema. Lymphedema is a common side effect of breast cancer surgery and can be reversed when detected early. The goal of this research study is to detect changes in water that could indicate arm swelling, or lymphedema, as soon as possible after breast cancer surgery.

If you should qualify for this research study:

  • You will participate in a minimum of five (90-minute) therapy sessions over the course of one year, which will take place in person at 355 E Erie St, Chicago, IL 60611.
  • You will receive a home body water analyzer scale to use twice daily for one year.

Who Can Participate

  • At least 18 years old.
  • Unilateral Breast Cancer with completed surgery in last 6 months.
  • Sufficient standing ability to use a scale at home daily.
  • Availability to attend a minimum of 5 therapy sessions over the course of one year.
