Thanks to the equipment and materials that are used in physical therapy, many diseases have become treatable even without the use of surgery and medication. This area could not exist without hardware support. We can say that equipment for physical therapy is the basis of this medical direction.
The demand for physiotherapy procedures in the modern field of medicine cannot be overestimated since they have the widest spectrum of action and are considered auxiliary methods of treating diseases of a different nature. Manufacturers offer a wide variety of instruments and apparatus for physiotherapy, which can be divided into several categories depending on the operating factor:
It is based on the use of a dosed effect on the body of electric currents, electromagnetic or electric fields. It is used to improve microcirculation, improve tissue tropism, prevent the development of atrophy and contractures, improve metabolic processes in tissues, and improve motor functions.
It is exposed to a constant or pulsed magnetic field. It helps accelerate tissue regeneration and relieves pain and inflammation.
It is based on the use of sound waves of a certain frequency. Ultrasound is used to improve local and general metabolic processes, has a beneficial effect on tissue tropism, and contributes to the disappearance of scars and infiltrates.
It uses light radiation in the red and infrared ranges in the affected areas. At the same time, light energy is transmitted to cells, stimulating their vital activity and activating self-regulation processes.
It is one of the methods of apparatus physiotherapy aimed at improving lymphatic drainage and venous circulation, activating metabolic processes, and improving skin elasticity.
Shock Wave Therapy
It refers to non-invasive biosurgery methods, which can be used to influence the cause of the disease of the musculoskeletal system: herniated discs, osteochondrosis, arthrosis, and chronic spinal pain.
It is one of the most popular types of physiotherapy treatment. In addition to the general healing effect, it is used in the form of hydro massage, as well as baths with various effects.
There are various types of physical therapy equipment that are used for a variety of procedures. All modern devices are designed for therapeutic effects on certain human organs in specific diseases. Often, physiotherapy devices are used after surgical operations to restore tissues as soon as possible during the rehabilitation period. Physiotherapeutic methods of treatment are an integral part of the rehabilitation period after severe injuries and chronic diseases of various organs and have a beneficial effect both on local problem areas and on the body as a whole.
