Location

We want Mandurah Oedema Clinic to be a welcoming home from home, not an impersonal clinical environment. We believe our clients want comfortable, familiar surroundings and that feeling at home during treatment is a big part of successfully managing oedema. Our clinic is set on Waterside Canals in a refurbished & specially redesigned home providing comfortable treatment rooms, a lounge waiting room with a library and purpose built, heated pool for hydrotherapy. We are on the water, close to town but away from the noise & foot traffic of a busy main street. We have on-site, gated parking for up to 6 cars and are signposted with a blue information sign from the corner of Leslie Street.

Treatment Rooms

We have two private, well fitted treatment rooms with electric/hydraulic beds where our therapists have access to a range of oedema equipment. With state of the art bioimpedance Spectroscopy equipment, compression pumps, garments, lasers and lymphscanner, we are able to offer treatment & advice on all aspects of oedema.
Mandurah Oedema Clinic was set up with the aim of providing a centre of excellence for oedema treatment in Mandurah & the Peel region.

Office

Our clinic management software is provided by Cliniko, a leading Australian medical software company providing secure, comprehensive client record keeping & online booking with SMS & Email notification. We also use Finger-Ink, a companion program for Cliniko that lets you fill out our New Client Registration form much easier & quicker on a clinic iPad. This helps save the planet by reducing paper! We offer HICAPS for instant health insurance refunds and credit card payments streamlining our office systems, your time with us is valuable, why waste it doing paperwork.

Mandurah Oedema Supplies

We deal with a wide range of oedema equipment from compression pumps to garments, tape and home lasers. Much of this equipment can only be purchased through a qualified clinic fitting service so we work with our sister company Mandurah Oedema Supplies to source the best, value for money oedema equipment & supplies available and measure and fit these in-house. We have qualified staff who can measure up & fit a range of compression & pump garments for you to purchase. We also have compression pumps to rent so you can try the benefits of home treatment for yourself. If you’d like to know more about our clinic, please contact us & we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
