Look4LE – A Mobile App to Locate Trained Lymphedema Specialists

 

Trying to find a certified lymphedema specialist for yourself or a loved one?

Look4LE2Look4LE is a mobile app, developed by the American Lymphedema Framework Project (ALFP), to help patients and families find therapists in their areas who are trained to treat lymphedema.

The app currently features almost 1,000 LANA-certified therapists, and therapists with 135 hours of lymphedema training – and the list is constantly growing.

Patients are able to locate specialists using the app’s therapist directory, where they can search by name or city, or by using the app’s built-in map feature to find therapists by location name, zip code, or even the current location.

L4LE1Each specialist has a contact page within the app where patients and families can find phone, street, web, and email addresses, as well as view a map, get directions, and add the specialist to their system contacts.

There are also a number of resources listed in the app with links to web pages about lymphedema and organizations where one can find more information. This application is a wonderful resource for patients looking for a specialist, traveling patients looking for treatment centers, or physicians and therapists looking for a qualified referral.

 

Look4LE is available for free on your iPhone or iPad or android in the App Store, or you can find more information at http://www.alfp.org.
