Introducing the SOZO® Digital Health Platform at Vail Health

Feb 23, 2022

Cancer treatments can sometimes have rare, unintended consequences, including lymphedema (swelling due to build up of fluid in the body.) This can become a life long, serious condition if it isn't detected soon enough. At Vail Health, the Shaw Cancer Center and Howard Head Sports Medicine team up to use the SOZO® Digital Health Platform to detect lymphedema in cancer patients and treat it before it becomes serious. Vail Health has the SOZO® Digital Health Platform in both Eagle and Summit counties, and is the only organization to have these machines between Denver and Salt Lake City.
