Diadynamic Stimulus Current Therapy

/w/assignables/logo/2_123_maxi_en.jpg

This treatment uses a mixture of electric currents, (both galvanic and impulse), which have an inhibitory or facilitatory effect, depending on the frequency, intensity and other parameters. The result is both pain relief and an improvement in circulation. In general, the treatment is prescribed for conditions such as sprains, bruises, oedemas, joint and spine deterioration and disc degeneration.



Type: Medical
Duration of treatment: 5 - 20 minutes

Four Cell Galvanic Bath

/w/assignables/logo/2_121_maxi_en.jpg

This treatment is especially beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis. The forearms and lower limbs are placed into water trays at a temperature of 34°C. Water and a gentle electrical current are the components of this treatment, and an electric current is passed through these particular body parts. Because only the limbs of the body are immersed in water, the electric current in the four-cell bath can be given at a stronger intensity that the full galvanic bath (See: Galvanic Bath). The treatment also has the benefit of improving circulation.



Type: Medical
Duration of treatment: 15-30 minutes

Galvanic Bath

/w/assignables/logo/2_120_maxi_en.jpg

Water and a gentle electrical current are the components of this treatment, carried out in a bath at a temperature of 34°C whilst electricity is passed through the body. The electric current has a tranquillising effect for cases of agitated nerves. This makes the treatment suitable for all conditions of pain in the motor organs, in particular degenerative diseases, inflammatory arthritis and joint problems. It also has a positive effect on improving the metabolism of the tissues, the shrinking of oedemas and reducing pain and spasticity.

Interference

In this treatment, different electrical pads at a medium frequency are placed onto the body together with a small vacuum. The effect is one of a micro-massage on the damaged tissue. Depending on the pre-set frequency, the muscles can be stimulated to a so-called muscle gymnastic condition, or alternatively produce relaxation in the muscle tone to have an analgesic effect. The treatment has two advantages: firstly, it reduces pain, and secondly, the micro-massage improves the circulation and flow of oxygen to the tissue, resulting in a healing effect.

Iontophoresis

/w/assignables/logo/2_122_maxi_en.jpg

This is a treatment whereby medicine is absorbed into the body through the skin by means of an electric galvanic current. This is normally recommended as treatment in cases of arthritis and chronic inflammatory spinal problems.

Magnetic Therapy

/w/assignables/logo/2_125_maxi_en.jpg

This treatment is conducted while lying down on a bed or couch, while the treated body part is exposed to an artificial magnetic field (magnetic blanket, contact treatment head or magnetic cylinder). By creating a weak pulsating magnetic field around the body, it has the effect of recharging the magnetic stimulation of the cells. This results in normalising the metabolism and regeneration of cells, thereby supporting the healing process. The treatment also has contraindications, such as implanted cardio stimulators (pacemakers), fungal diseases, tumours and pregnancy.

Selective Stimulus Galvanic Current

/w/assignables/logo/2_124_maxi_en.jpg

Two pads are placed at both ends of the indicated muscle. An electric current is passed between the two pads. As a result, it is possible to feel the muscle fibres contracting and releasing as the treatment is in progress. The purpose of this treatment is to build strength in the muscles following an injury or operation, and is an important part of a rehabilitation package.

TENS - Transcutaneous Electric Neuro Stimulation

/w/assignables/logo/2_118_maxi_en.jpg

Transcutaneous Electric Neuro Stimulation     This uses the principle that pain and pain impulses in the body can be dispersed through stimulation of the nervous system with an electrical current. This electrical current is either applied in impulses in short bursts, in waves, or in a continuous stream. A pad is placed upon the site of the problematic area, and the current passes through the skin to the nerve. This treatment is especially effective for conditions that require pain relief, particularly on the back or neck. Specific examples include spinal diseases, headaches and post-traumatic pain.



Type: Medical
Duration of treatment: 15 - 30 minutes
