Intuitive PHYSIOMED one-button operation
for uniform heating of all the tissue layers
for selective treatment of tissue with good conductive structures, such as connective tissue and muscles (per monode or diplode)
for steady development of heat and prevention of overdosage
The PHYSIOTHERM-S high-end shortwave therapy unit enables continuous and pulsed energy output for thermal and athermal applications. You can choose between the capacitor field method for uniform heating of all the tissue layers as well as the coil field method (optional) for selective treatment of tissue with good conductive structures, such as connective tissue and muscles. In addition to the graphic display of the effective power output, the ingenious automatic matching feature (dynamic matching) ensures the steady development of heat and prevents overdosage by reducing the power if there is a problem. The extremely well-shielded, high-frequency connection cables provide trouble-free operation.
The easily adjustable supporting arms ensure quick and exact electrode placement. The smooth running castors with latches ensure good mobility and secure positioning of the PHYSIOTHERM-S.
Shortwave therapy is classified as high frequency therapy. The different frequencies of the high frequency therapy have in common that warm tissue is created under their influence. With shortwave therapy electric and magnetic fields are used. Shortwaves are applied using the condenser field method or the coil field method. With the condenser field method the treated body part is found between two condenser plates (shell electrodes or soft rubber electrodes). Under the influence of high frequency electrical alternating fields, periodical changes occur in the treated tissue. By keeping a minimum distance between electrodes and the skin a uniform heating through of all levels of the treated tissue segments is produced. With the coil field method a coil in the form of a Vortex current electrode or Diploid is to be used. The high frequency current will flow through these, whereby a variable magnetic field will be in place in its environment. This causes a predominantly warming magnetic field in the tissue with good conductive structure, such as binding tissue and musculature. In the impulse mode during the shortwave therapy the sub thermal effect is with trophic enhancement and reflective influences from the vascular system in the foreground. During continuous operation the local thermal effect dominates with improved cell metabolism, reduced viscosity of bodily fluids, higher tensibility of collagen fibres, circulation stimulation and manipulation of the nervous system.
Shortwave therapy will therefore be used predominantly for:
In orthopedics, traumatology, rheumatology as well as in the Ear Nose and Throat, Urology and Gynaecology departments and internal medicine.
