SBDV is a self-management solution that was specifically developed as supportive care to reduce cancer-related fatigue. The SBDV patch gives patients control to manage their self-care by applying patches to the acupressure point. They are an ideal way for a patient to reduce fatigue especially in the early days of treatment when energy levels are low. The non-transdermal patches are simply placed on the skin to stimulate acupuncture points. The patches contain light-reflecting technology and light-emitting materials to restore energy emitted by the body.

The SBDV patches have been specifically developed as supportive care to reduce cancer-related fatigue. There are a number of acupressure points for supportive care, the points we used in SBDV are SP21, GV14 and LIV5. SP21 is used to alleviate general body ache and general weakness. GV14 also known as DU-14 is used to alleviate stiffness, fever, upper backache and the common cold. LIV5 also known as LV5 has a number of benefits such as chemical and environmental toxicity, chronic fatigue syndrome, immune deficiency disorders, low energy and side effects of radiation and chemotherapy in cancer patients.
