With widespread usage and thousands of devices now installed in different countries, tecar technology is employed in numerous environments to aid and control the inflammatory and reparative processes of the body, especially relating to post-accident and post-surgical recovery. It also enjoys widespread application in the treatment of chronic muscular and osteoarticular pathologies as a tool to relieve pain and provide improved functional quality for patients. In some European centers it is even used within therapeutic protocols to manage functional disturbances caused by Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy and other pathologies related to the autoimmune system.
Beyond the hundreds of clinical cases described and reported by hospitals and clinics, numerous publications have found that electrical stimulation helps to increase blood flow, improves the elasticity of damaged tissue and reduces edema. At a cellular level electrical stimulation affects adhesion, orientation and migration as well as influencing the regulation of morphological and phenotypic processes involved in the differentiation and proliferation of different types of stem cells.
The versatility of the technology has also lent itself especially well to the creation of new protocols in sporting environments, both for athletes during their professional careers and for post-retirement body maintenance.
