The model of lymph flow in the human lymphatic system in the quasi-one-dimensional approach is considered in the paper. Calculations with natural gravity force influence are presented. Calculations show that in some sets of parameters of lymphatic vessels the physiological flow can be reached in the model with zero global pressure gradient influence only by the “muscle” pump.
