Diathermy is the condenser effect produced by an electromagnetic system of Capacitive-Resistive Electrical Transfer (C.R.E.T.) and consists of the physiological activation from the interior of the tissue through two fundamental actions: rebalancing and regeneration.
The process is carried out with a device that generates electromagnetic waves, which are sent into the patient through special electrodes.
Diathermy is generated with the exclusive Medestec Dual System at frequencies of 0.5 MHz and 0.8 MHz.
Diathermy is not to be confused with traditional and conventional thermotherapy such as infrared and microwaves that also warm superficial tissue, sometimes producing burns. Medestec Diathermy is defined as a regulated penetration of temperature in body tissue. Thanks to the Medestec Dual System, the electrode first acts at 0.8 MHz by superficially preparing the tissue; then at 0.5 MHz, the temperature can flow more easily and deeply.
The Medestec equipment automatically generates both capacitive and resistive Diathermy for the same output, thus avoiding possible operator errors.
Physiological Benefits of Deep Diathermy: Generates warm temperatures in body tissue. Accelerates cellular metabolism. Stimulates blood circulation. Acts as a muscle relaxant. Anti-inflammatory action. Healing agent.
