Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells. These, very schematically, are systems that differentiate themselves, and their inner environment, from the outer environment thanks to the cell membrane.
On both sides of the cell membrane there is a difference in potential, due to the different concentration of ions between the intracellular and the extracellular environment.
From here, we can outline the cell as a bioelectric unit with its own characteristics of conductivity and electrical resistance. Impedance is a variable that takes into consideration the whole bioelectric behavior of body tissues.
Experimentally, it has been measured that the impedance, or, simplifiying, the resistance of the tissues, decreases when the frequency of the electromagnetic waves that pass through them increases. Translated into practice: the increase in frequency, and in particular the range of high frequencies (3-30 Mhz), reduces the impedance of cells almost to zero.
It can therefore be said that radio frequencies emitted by our devices go through the barrier represented by the most superficial tissues to penetrate deep and then exert their effect directly in depth, in the site of damage.
The interaction between biological tissues and high frequencies is at the basis of the beneficial effects (antalgic, antiedemigen, antiinflammatory, proregenerative) that develop during therapy.
The radio frequencies generated by our devices activate directly, and indirectly, numerous cellular metabolic cascades for the regeneration and repair of injuries.
The effects of high-frequency diathermy can be divided into:
Nitric oxide is an important biochemical mediator that has multiple effects: it is a vasodilator, active processes of neoangiogenesis, has an anti-inflammatory effect.
The effects of nitric oxide are amplified by the indirect-diathermic effects of high frequencies which increase local metabolism and affect the re-equilibrium of immune activity in the treatment site.
Focusmed® has invested heavily in the research and selection of the best materials to radiate energy from our electromedical devices to the patient in total safety.
Handpieces are a fundamental component of our electromedical products: custom-designed, certified, biocompatible and ergonomic.
At the apex of the handpiece there is an isolated discoid, coated in titanium dioxide. The discoid has been carefully designed to allow the delivery of treatment in total safety for patient and operator. The discoid surface, coated with vitrified titanium dioxide, is isolated from the external environment. In addition, the disc is easily removable from the handpiece so you can clean it quickly after each treatment.
The handpiece can slide on the skin without the use of gel or conductive creams, making the treatment much more practical.
The handpieces can be used in two different ways:
The return mat is specially designed to be practical to use by the operator and comfortable for the patient: it is soft, foldable and easy to clean.
It does not need to be placed in direct contact with the skin of the patient, so as to facilitate the use of devices on any district and in any context: from the bed of the unit or at the patient’s home.
This innovative accessory has been specifically designed to promote and ensure comfort and therapeutic continuity in any situation.
Within all our devices there are numerous mechanisms to control power delivery and high frequencies to ensure maximum effectiveness and efficiency in all clinical conditions.
Real-time control is guaranteed by several microprocessors that continuously control the correct balance between the numerous treatment variables, such as the power output, impedance and absorption of high frequencies by the tissues.
The steel case of our portable electromedical is made of materials that are extremely resistant to shocks and temperature changes.
The certification for home use of the Pronexibus Plus® and the Rinovacell® testifies to the great versatility and resistance of our products.
The case is reinforced in steel, lightweight, compact, shock-resistant, and resealable with the appropriate security keys.
Pronexibus Plus® has been designed to be practical, portable, and is also certified for home use.
The mobile support is designed to use the electromedical devices in total safety and freedom.
The mobile support:
Focusmed® always make sure to choose the highest quality using materials of first choice strictly Made in Italy.
To effectively summarize the advantages of Focusmed electromedical technology, we can divide them into two categories: biological advantages and technical advantages.
The biological advantages are numerous, including:
The technical advantages are also numerous and significant, especially for the quality of the operator’s work:
