Tecar introduction for indiba diathermy deep heat:
Capacitive Electric Transfer (CET) is a method that allows the RF electrical current to be transferred “by capacity” (principle of the electrical capacitor) to the body via a moveable external application electrode. This is covered with an insulating film which acts as dielectric and the body acts as a second plate of the capacitor. A return plate closes the circuit. The electric circulation through the resistive medium formed by the live tissues increases its temperature.
Thermal energy RET wave can penetrate directly into the deep subcutaneous adipose tissue (DSA) to a depth of 1-6 cm and generate energy with the help of skin-formed impedance.
The Endogenous Thermotherapy based on the principle of capacitive and resistive energy transfer (Capacitive-Resistive Diathermy) has an effect within the biological tissues, activating the body’s natural repairing and anti-inflammatory processes from within.
Tecar is able to significantly reduce recovery and rehabilitation time by stimulating the activation of all the body’s natural repair processes. All this thanks to the application of radiofrequency current that causes a thermal reaction in the tissues that stimulates the body’s natural healing response with immediate anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects on muscles, tendons, cartilage or bones ligaments. The two systems, capacitive and resistive, allow the operator to easily adjust the treatment according to the type of pathology. Capacitive transfer for tissues with high water content (muscles), resistive transfer for tissues with the highest resistance and low water content (bones, tendons, adipose tissues).
Function of indiba diathermy deep heat tecar:
The precise and aimed effect of the Targeted Radiofrequency on the hypertonic muscle fibers causes their immediate relaxation. The effect of myorelaxation is primarily based on vasodilation, which occurs immediately during the treatment and is responsible for higher supply of nutrients into the tissue.
TISSUE REGENERATION AND HEALING
The improvement of tissue metabolism is a natural and valuable secondary outcome of the treatment. It leads to faster healing of the traumatized soft tissue and faster reabsorption of post-injury haematomas.
The walls of the arterioles are enlarged and the precapillary sphincters relaxed, allowing increased local blood perfusion. This leads to an increase of the lymphatic processes (drainage) and subsequently to reduction of the edema.
The principal effect of the Targeted Radiofrequency –the pain relief–results from muscle relaxation, edema reduction, tissue regeneration and healing.
