ABOUT THE DEVICE ...
The electrical stimulation device (the ARP) possesses specification
characteristics that are not found in any conventional therapeutic
neuromuscular electrical stimulator (interferential, microcurrent,
galvanic, Russian stim, iontophoresis).
The ARP uses direct current (DC) compounded with a high frequency
double exponential, patented background waveform. This background
wave is harmonious with the body and significantly reduces skin
and fatty tissue impedance allowing much deeper penetration of the
direct current without the side effects of skin burning.
Also, the unique waveform produces minimal inhibitory protective
muscle contractions allowing active range of motion during therapy
and training. This permits eccentric (lengthening) contractions
to occur which are critical to treatment.
The ARP is FDA authorized for the following uses: · Muscle Reeducation:
Eliminating compensation patterns · Relaxation of muscle spasms:
Reducing pain in the affected muscles · Increased local blood circulation:
Shown to speed up healing · Prevention and retardation of disuse
atrophy: Quickly builds muscle strength · Maintaining and increasing
range of motion: Designed to increase your muscles ability to absorb
force and prevent muscle related injury.
Compound, double exponential asymmetric with high levels of direct
High power with NO surface burning or surface pain at 0 to 2.5 watts.
40 to 500 pulses per second.
High-frequency carrier signal at 10,000 cycles per second. Polarity
Direction of electron flow is reversible.
Depth of Penetration
Deepest soft tissue penetration resonates with the human system,
causing the body's natural resistance to drop out. xx
