We often hear about Diathermy in Malaysia, where many hospitals had already stopped using this so called primitive technology for ages. However, technology has made everything possible, making Diathermy safer to be applied into daily Physiotherapy practice
We often hear about Diathermy in Malaysia, where many hospitals had already stopped using this so called primitive technology for ages. However, technology has made everything possible, making Diathermy safer to be applied into daily Physiotherapy practice.
So, WHAT IS TECARTHERAPY?
TECAR is an innovative therapy that uses endogenous heat production to treat Musculoskeletal Traumas and Pathologies.
The heat generated by the movement of electric charges stimulates repairing processes and has an antalgic and anti-inflammatory effect.
BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS: BIOSTIMULATING │ ANTALGIC │ ANTI-INFLAMMATORY │ DECONTRACTING │ VASODILATOR
At Trimax Healthcare, we have been dealing with many sort of machines aka. Treatment Modalities for years. Of course, the conventional physiotherapy equipments such as Ultrasound therapy, Electrotherapy, Shockwaves Therapy, Tens and So on....... One thing in particular, that captured our attention while deciding to use TecarTherapy as the main products for the next few years - Effectiveness and Revolutionize the Physical Therapy Practice.
Back in 2013 - 2018, there has been a significant change in Physical therapy and Chiropractic Practice in Malaysia, they have began to start acquiring new treatment modalities :
1) Shockwaves Therapy
2) High Power Laser Therapy
A few notable brands popped out across the rehab practices across Malaysia. Technology from Shockwaves and High Power Laser Therapy certainly helps, however it has greatly reduced the dependency of Physiotherapy or Chiropractic Hand Skills. Rehab Practitioners had since begun to question themselves, is hand skill more important or do we just fully adopt technology to make the practice easier and of course, charge higher premium for the service. Therefore, in 2018, we noticed a tremendous growth in manual therapy courses and more Physiotherapists or Chiropractors begun to partake the courses to enrich their already good manual techniques.
Of course, all these had been well noted and observed by the management of Trimax Healthcare Sdn Bhd, we have been thinking of revolutionize the rehab market, bringing into Malaysia more technological advanced equipments for Malaysia Market. As soon as, we saw the TECAR technology, we immediately fell in love with the technology. This Tecar Technology is so versatile, that it has completely changed the face of Physiotherapy or Rehab Practice. As TECAR is a very user friendly technology, yet very powerful equipment to make every treatment easier and more long lasting.
1) Tecar : Radiofrequency + Diathermy Technology.
TECAR is a combination of both technology, that allows us to treat wide spectrum of indications and the range of treatment is so broad, that allows us to treat Chronic and acute indications - Now, this is technology!
Many who has heard of TECAR and tried using TECAR without proper education, will tend to believe TECAR is all about IRONING of FASCIA....... Which is not true! TECAR works on Endogenous Heat - that helps to vasolidate and improve blood circulatio - This help to ease pain - But that is not it. Combining Manual Therapy and TecarTherapy is the way forward, for any Physiotherapists to make their therapies more effective and quicker to help patient recover.
3) Acute - Athermy
Conventionally, we can't treat many ACUTE cases using modalities, as most of these technology helped to improve blood circulation - This isn't helpful during ACUTE phase, therefore, in Tecar - we have ATHERMY mode, using only Radiofrequency for Acute cases will be ideal and fast. (possibly, pain free and your patients may even like it!)
4) Transdermal Delivery
Sometimes, pure treatment may not be able to speed up certain cases. Thanks to the action of high-frequency pulses, Diacare allows to accelerate the penetration of the active principle of a cream or a drug inside the tissues, with a remarkable increase in treatment effectiveness. Transdermal delivery is ideal to produce antalgic and anti-inflammatory effects in the treated areas or to stimulate the metabolism in aesthetic applications.
These are very much what a clinic would usually requires, as many would love to buy many different technologies to make the clinic seem advanced. However, owning a Tecartherapy would be able to answer most of your prayer, as this is a very thorough technology that helps to treat most of the pathologies for your clinical practice.
