Tecartherapy equipment (Electrical Transference of Capacitive and Resistive Energy) are medium wave devices for application in different health sectors because of their powerful biological and physiological effects.
By defnition, all the equipment has these effects; therefore any equipment may be used for any of the following applications. Nevertheless, the need for specialisation in each of these sectors and achieving stronger results specific to the physical area of application (from the mouth to the foot) has triggered the development of a family of devices adapted to each sector, in order to obtain the best biological effect possible.
Here are the basic effects below:
Thanks to the cell metabolism transformation action, the natural anti-inammatory mechanisms are strengthened. Their effects are achieved in acute and chronic procedures.
The release of endorphins induced by the increase in temperature reduces pain and mobilises and eliminates toxins, which facilitates the recovery process of damaged tissue.
Sports Performance and Recovery from Injuries
When stimulating the mobilisation of body fluids, the elimination of exudates after practicing sports is increased, improving the biomechanical parameters, the blood flow to the muscles and tissue regeneration, and accelerating the athlete's RETURN-TO-PLAY.
It accelerates the absorption of extracellular fluids thanks to the activation of the lymphatic and circulatory system.
The vasodilation achieved after its application increases oxygen and nutrients supply, facilitating the scarring process of soft tissues. This effect has been observed in acute and chronic injuries. In chronic injuries, it is important to highlight its effect on fibrosis.
The significant temperature increase achieved from the inside stimulates the organisation of collagen fibres, generating a tightening effect.
The thermal increase these devices generate, together with the rise in cellular metabolism, has shown an impact on the degradation of adipocytes and the production of cell water homeostasis, which stimulates the weight and volume loss process.
