The next generation of TECAR therapy
The TECARPULS is a special device for CET therapy (Capacitive Energy Transfer), a non-invasive treatment that awakens the body's natural ability to self-regenerate, using a frequency of 500 kHz. The TECARPULS produces "deep heating" in a controlled manner using electromagnetic energy (diathermy).
The reactions produced by the TECARPULS through capacitive electrodes are focused on soft tissues, muscles and peri-articular structures. The transfer of energy generates optimal, local deep heat, which immediately increases local circulation, reduces pain, improves elasticity and therefore improves mobility. The main advantage is that it significantly shortens recovery time in the event of acute and chronic injuries.
TECAR therapy has been used with great success since 1988. Several clinical reports from research institutes worldwide have proven its remarkable effect on various injuries as seen in dermatology, traumatology and sports medicine. The localized induction of deep heat in the treated area causes an expansion of blood vessels, an increase in blood flow and an increase in metabolic rate.
It also leads to higher elasticity in soft connective tissues improving flexibility. In addition, the localized warming lowers muscle tone. Stimulation of the thick nerve fibres provides increased nerve conduction velocity, giving the patient a clear advantage with regard to pain relief when starting rehabilitation.
The physiological responses are mainly attributed to heat output, which is directly related to total power output. Heat, as applied through diathermy, is a common treatment during a physical therapy treatment regimen.

ENRAF-NONIUS CURAPULS 670
The new shortwave diathermy device of Enraf-Nonius
Enraf-Nonius’ revolutionary and new Curapuls 670 offers an effective, safe and easily administered therapy for various disorders of the locomotor system and for the restoration of soft tissue.
There has been a strong evidence base for the application of radio frequency energy for many years now. Recent literature, too, shows a scientific evidence base, particularly for the pulsed application of this therapy in highly relevant medical issues such as postoperative pain and swelling, as well as wounds that are not healing well.
Device featuring all the knowledge
Enraf-Nonius has successfully incorporated all the available scientific knowledge on the application of this therapy in this device. The unique algorithm and the highly user-friendly user interface, supported by the intuitive use of colours, make it very easy indeed for you to help your patient.
It will only take you a few seconds to select the best possible treatment for various types of pain and inflammation, depending on how acute or chronic the disorder is.
The unique and good-looking light ring provides both the therapist and the patient with a clear indication of the amount of energy and the nature of the treatment being administered.
A VERY EASY-TO-ADMINISTER TREATMENT, BASED ON CLINICAL EVIDENCE
This therapy is commonly used for the palliative treatment of pain and swelling (both post-operative and regular), among other things, and as a very effective tool that will help wounds heal.
A-thermal and thermal
With its low-power settings, this device is exceptionally well suited to the treatment of acute conditions. Recent large-scale research has shown that this method is particularly well suited to the relief of post-operative pain and the promotion of post-operative wound healing.
However, the device can also be used to achieve thermal effects, as well. Even these higher levels of power can be safely administered, and they are very effective in the relief of pain caused by chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis.
Easy to use and hands free
This therapy can be administered entirely hands free using the convenient arm, which can be fixed in the right position with just one button. This makes the device a clear improvement on
labour-intensive therapies such as Thecar, which are generally administered to treat the same problems. The clever user interface and the touch screen also help therapists administer the therapy easily and without any effort.
A second arm can be affixed if necessary. Therapists can simultaneously use two circuplodes to approach the treatment area in a highly effective manner. Thanks to its two completely independent channels, the device can even be used to treat two areas at once, or even to treat two different patients at the same time.
Due to the nature of the electromagnetic energy, it is mainly absorbed by tissue with a low level of impedance, such as well-vascularised tissue (muscle tissue) or tissue featuring oedema or recent haematomas.
Absorption of this energy promotes tissue recovery and improves circulation. Shortwave therapy is not very physically demanding and is effective very deep inside the body. The patient hardly experiences any thermal sensation, but the effect on his or her deep tissue is significant!
The device transmits electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency spectrum. This therapy is known as PRFE (pulsed radio frequency energy) or PSWT (pulsed shortwave therapy). Curapuls 670 generates electromagnetic energy with a frequency of 27.12 MHz.
Due to the pulsed nature of the energy, the device can very briefly transmit high peak power Watts, followed by relatively long periods of inaction. As a result, the patient’s tissue receives intense stimulation, although the therapy is very safe and comfortable for the patient.
High adjustable peak power (maximum 200 Watt)
Pulse width and pulse frequency can be set by the therapist
Conveniently arranged display
Over 25 clinical treatment suggestions
100 free programmable memory positions
Special induction electrodes (superficial thermal burden low)
Indication and monitoring of the power output to ensure optimum energy transmission
Easy-to-adjust electrode arms that can be brought into position very easily.
Opportunity to use two circuplodes simultaneously.
The Circuplode is an advanced inductive electrode. It is provided with a Faraday screen that eliminates capacitive effects to give a virtually pure magnetic field. This means that no energy is absorbed in superficial fatty tissues, so that optimum effect in deeper-lying tissues is obtained. This is in contrast to conventional inductive electrodes, in which the transfer of energy is limited by the capacitive currents in superficial (fatty) tissues.
Curapuls 670 comes standard with a Circuplode Ø 140 mm, which will allow you to carry out the most common treatments. In addition, the following components are available:
Circuplode Ø 90 mm: for the treatment of small body parts such as wrist and ankle joints
Circuplode-E: for the treatment of large oblong shaped body parts such as knee joints.

ENRAF-NONIUS CURAPULS 970
Continuous and pulsed shortwave diathermy unit
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.
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.
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 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.
FLEXIPLODE & CIRCUPLODE
Induction electrodes are particularly well-suited for the treatment of deeper-lying tissues. The adjustable treatment planes of the Flexiplode ensure optimum adaptation to the body surface. The large surface totalling 412x225 mm enables treatment of larger body parts in one application.
