About Interferential Therapy
Interferential Electrical Stimulation is a unique way of effectively delivering therapeutic frequencies to the tissue. Interferential stimulators use a fixed carrier frequency of 4,000 Hz per second and also a second adjustable frequency of 4,001-4,400 Hz per second. This causes the stimulation to concentrate deep in the tissues as well as at the surface of the skin. It provides more analgesic or nerve blocking effect.
About Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy (EMS)
EMS sends electrical current through self-adhesive electrodes placed over the muscle. The current passes through the skin to the nerves in that area, causing the muscle to expand and contract, effectively exercising the muscle. EMS is predominately used by doctors and physical therapists to prevent or reduce muscle atrophy. Atrophy is the weakening and loss of muscle tone, which often occurs after surgeries or injuries. EMS may also be used to help increase blood flow to muscles, increase range of motion, increase muscle strength and tone, and enhance muscle endurance. EMS is widely used by bodybuilders and other athletes to complement strength training. Olympic athletes have used EMS for over 20 years to enhance their training.
