PhysioMG – new generation of magnetotherapy

Introduction

Magnetotherapy is used in various fields of physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Magnetotherapy uses biophysical and biological processes that take place in the human body. The terms “magnetotherapy” and “low-frequency magnetic field therapy” are used interchangeably. A new term will now be implemented. PhysioMG Line:  new generation of magnetotherapy that allows the simultaneous interaction of two applicators on the body. This is the DUAL mode of MAGNETOTHERAPY.

A method commonly used in the application of variable magnetic field to patients with the use of solenoid or local applicators (plate or magnetic mats / cushions). The first are solenoids with a typical diameter of 70, 60, 30, 20 cm. The second are applicators of different sizes: they are small, handy, often fixed to the patient’s body with belts, positioned on a dedicated structure, and in the case of mats and pads, they are spread on the couch or positioned locally.

PhysioMG series – new generation of magnetotherapy

Astar, the leading manufacturer of physiotherapy equipment in Poland, presents a new system for low-frequency magnetic field therapy. The PhysioMG range of devices offers the possibility of performing therapies based on three generators in combination with solenoid applicators, with plate applicators positioned on dedicated structures and the local ones fixed with belts on the therapy area. Everything is completed by a new construction of the couch and a trolley for the applicator.

The PhysioMG line is also a series of technological innovations that ASTAR is introducing on the market. The first innovation is the CS75 applicator with a diameter of 75 cm, the largest possible ! The second is the use of the visual indicator of field activity in solenoid applicators which confirms the act of execution of the magnetic field treatment.

The third innovation is the magnetic belt system, that is the sensory indicator of field activity of which the PhysioMG line is equipped as standard. The modern dimension of magnetotherapy manifests itself in this case with vibrations experienced by the patient during treatment.

DUAL MODE

Modern technology is also DUAL MODE thanks to which magnetic field therapy takes on a dynamic character.

The dual channel of PhysioMG system offers the possibility to combine the magnetic field distribution of two types of applicators in a low frequency magnetic field treatment. In this mode, we use the CS60 or CS75 solenoid applicators and a CPEP plate applicator. This functional set is a combination of CS60 with CPEP and CS75 with CPEP respectively.

PhysioMG – new generation of magnetotherapy – dual mode of individual applicators

The treatment combines the effects of an applicator with solenoids and plate applicators positioned on the injured area of ​​the patient. The first has systemic and vitalizing effects, the second is a local therapy on the area of ​​dysfunction.

Simultaneous operation of two independent magnetic fields with variable frequencies causes from the physical point of view the change of the field in which the dynamic vector acts as a resultant of the induction. Magnetic field therapy therefore acquires specific properties and thus triggers an additional stimulation of the organic structures present in the low-frequency magnetic field. The effectiveness of the magnetic field definitely increases.

FREQUENCIES IN THE MAGNETOTHERAPY

Technological innovations are completed by the use of variable frequency, SPECTRUM. This is a change in therapeutic frequency in the 0-50 Hz range during low-frequency magnetic field treatment.

Example:

The FM modulation value is 5 Hz. The therapeutic frequency is 20 Hz. The frequency change will occur in the range: 17.5 Hz – 22.5 Hz or +/- 2.5 Hz.

Applicators and accessories available for the PhysioMG series:

NEW! CS75 solenoid applicator – with 75 cm internal diameter – new on the market !!! Such a large diameter facilitates the execution of the treatment. Fixed by a carrying trolley to the construction of the couch. In addition, equipped with an indicator of visual field activity, which is a visual confirmation of carrying out the magnetic field treatment. Designed to work with the 827 model.

CS60 solenoid applicator, with a diameter of 60 cm, similar to the CS75, is connected by a trolley to the structure of the couch. It has an indicator of activity on the incorporated visual field, which is a visual confirmation of carrying out the treatment with magnetic field. Designed to work with the 815, 825 and 827 models.

CS35 solenoid applicator – with a 35 cm diameter, with a cushion, designed to increase patient comfort during application. The new base design ensures better device stability, thus improving safety during therapy. Equipped with an activity indicator on the visual field, i.e. a visual confirmation of the treatment with a magnetic field. Designed to work with the 815, 825 and 827 models.

CPEP applicator – locally applied, plate, designed for local application of low frequency magnetic field. A proven combination of two coils. The PhysioMG system allows, in this case, which is very important, the implementation of the therapy regardless of the patient’s position, lying or sitting. The fixing with the anchor belts guarantees comfort and safety of the patient subjected to therapy with low frequency magnetic field. Designed to work with the 825 and 827 models.

PhysioMG – new generation of magnetotherapy. Couch, trolley, indicators

The couch, designed for the CS60 and CS75 applicators, is a modern structure characterized by excellent durability and stability. The materials used for the couch were chosen so as not to disturb the low-frequency magnetic field generated by the applicators. The replaceable headrest increases patient comfort during treatment.

Trolley for CS35 applicator is a new design that guarantees patient safety and comfort. The therapist who performs the treatment with the PhysioMG system has two shelves for the CS35 applicator, positioned at an optimal height, so as to be able to perform the treatment of the upper limbs or the lower ones.
