The Back4 combines TECAR, Hi-TENS and HI-EMS currents and treats up to 3 areas of the body at the same time.
Due to Winback patented technology, the BACK4 can deliver several currents simultaneously and efficiently. The BACK4 can also allow for treatment of Capacitive (CET) and Resistive (RET) treatment simultaneously. It acts of all types of tissue for a wider field of action by combine all the currents of electrotherapy: high, medium, and low frequency.
T.E.C.A.R means Transfer of Capacitive And Resistive Energy
Tecar is high frequency alternating current.
According to the principle of Dr. D'Arsonval, Tecar causes a flow of ions through rapid electrical oscillations in the cellular environment.
The scientific and physical term to describe this phenomenon is the permittivity of the cell membrane.
Scientific studies have shown that 300kHz -1200kHz induces an increase in intra and extracellular exchanges and a diathermic effect on living tissue
Effects include: Biostimulation at the cellular level, pain relief, and diathermy
Hi-EMS represents electrostimulation
This creates a medium-frequency current (1500-4000Hz) that stimulates superficial or deep muscles Unlike traditional electrostimulation, the Hi-EMS current provides a virtually painless contraction
Effects include: Deep and superficial muscle recruitment for mobilization, vascularization, and drainage
Hi-Tens generates conventional Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) in a pulsed high frequency (PHF).
This pulse train generates powerful low-frequency neurostimulation in the nerves. Hi-TENS technology easily penetrates the tissue, increasing the effectiveness of treatment. It utilizes the classic low frequency current (2Hz, 5Hz, 25Hz) in combination with the diathermic effects of the high frequency TECAR.
Effects include: Long-term relief of chronic pain, immediate pain relief for acute pain, controls inflammation, and defibrosis.
