Differentiate between the various currents that can be selected on many modern generators including high volt, biphasic, microcurrent, Russian, interferential, premodulated interferential, and low volt. Compare techniques for modulating pain through the use of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators. Low volt currents of physiotherapy: physics, effects, technic by Frederick Harris Morse starting at $ Low volt currents of physiotherapy: physics, effects, technic has 0 available edition to buy at Half Price Books Marketplace. The Electro Physical Agents and Diagnostic Ultrasound group is a Professional Networks of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy based in the UK. Books There are a number of electrotherapy books around out there, and I do get asked at regular intervals which ones there are and which one should be purchased. A microcurrent facial emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents (hence ‘micro’ current), which mirror your own body’s electrical currents, on a cellular level to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a watt light.

  High Voltage Galvanic Current (HVGC) High volt galvanic stimulation uses high voltage and low-frequency electricity to penetrate deep into tissues. It is used to relieve pain, improve blood flow, relieve muscle spasm, and improve joint mobility. If you cannot have e-stim as a treatment, or if you wish not to have it, your physical theapist.   It effectively slows down or distracts the message from the nerve to the brain. From a physiotherapy point of view, affecting one’s ‘Pain Gate’, whether in an acute or chronic pain episode, is crucial area of treatment and electrotherapy is a very useful . Interferential Current (IFC) Inferential current (IFC) electrical stimulation is a type of electrical stimulation that your physical therapist may use to help decrease your pain and improve circulation to injured tissues.   The IFC works much like TENS, but the current can be easily moved and varied to target your most painful area of injury.   Posted In: Iontophoresis Forum Participant Leb on October 1, at pm # Allegedly, low-voltage current used in Iontophoresis treatments over a longer periods of time is supposed to be more effective than high-voltage current used in shorter periods of time. I think this assumes shorter individual treatments as well as shorter overallRead More.

To make a new cell requires millivolts. Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below and/or you cannot achieve millivolts to make new cells. Thus chronic disease is always defined by having low voltage. This book tells you how to measure your voltage in each/5(13). voltage and will accommodate to a slowly changing voltage. There are whole chapters in books devoted to this subject, but essentially a rapidly changing applied voltage (rise or fall) will it is the rate of change of the applied voltage (current) that is the main (but not the only) NMES Goal of treatment is to elicit a strong muscle. Low-voltage Hz AC traveling through the chest for even a fraction of a second can cause ventricular fibrillation at amperage as low as 60 to mA; for DC, about to mA are required. If current has a direct pathway to the heart (eg, via a cardiac catheter or pacemaker electrodes). Nothing can be further from the truth. As can be seen from the table below, the smallest current is amps, more than enough to kill if applied across the chest. A voltage as high as volts speaks for itself.
