The donation of a new device which conveniently fits in the palm of a hand, is making a difference for cancer patients at the Mid North Coast Cancer Institute in Coffs Harbour.
The Delfin D Moisture Meter measures swelling in people who have lymphoedema and also measures the effectiveness of treatments.
The $8,000 piece of technology was donated by the Coffs City Rotary Club.
“Each year we have our charity golf day, to raise funds for local charities and we were approached to donate towards this cause and we just thought, it’s an excellent cause.”
The club also donated software, which collects data from the probe and will go towards research into managing the side effects of radiation therapy.
