Curapuls 970 (Enraf-Nonius, Netherlands)

Unit for continuous and pulsed shortwave therapy

 

UNIT FOR CONTINUOUS AND PULSED SHORTWAVE THERAPY


CONTINUOUS AND PULSED OUTPUT
The continuously adjustable intensity and the output of 400 Watt provide optimum application possibilities. Continuous shortwave therapy increases the circulation and stimulates the metabolism. The pulsed peak power can be set to a maximum of 1000 Watts. The related average power is, however, much lower. Biological processes, which should not be heat-treated, can therefore be treated a-thermally.
THE ELECTRODES
An electrical field can be created with the disc electrodes or the rubber electrodes, depending on the shape and size of the body part to be treated. A choice can be made from a wide range of capacitive electrodes. A magnetic field can be created with the Circuplode or with the Flexiplode. The treatment planes of the Flexiplode can be adjusted to fit the body part. 
STRIKING EFFECTS
Besides the well known effects of heat therapy with continuous radiation, the unit’s pulsed mode will stimulate wound healing, oedema and haematoma absorption, pain reduction and stimulation of the peripheral circulation.
EASY TO MOVE
Four large wheels make the Curapuls 970 easy to move within your practice. Two wheels can be locked to immobilise the unit.
● Continuous and pulsed output
● Conveniently arranged display
● Wide range of electrodes
● Four large castors
● Adjustable electrode arms
CONTINUOUS AND PULSED SHORTWAVE THERAPY
Apart from the therapeutic effect of pulsed shortwave therapy, as described with the Curapuls 670, continuous shortwave therapy can also be applied with the  the Curapuls 970, the real diathermy. By using the different methods of placing the electrodes (transverse, longitudinal or co-planary), or by using different sized electrodes, a thermal effect can be obtained in selected parts of the body. As the continuous output also has a stronger effect in the surface layers, the patient will also experience a strong thermal effect.
