Stimulators, Electromagnetic, Low-Intensity, Soft Tissue/Wound
Definition : Electromagnetic stimulators designed to apply electromagnetic energy to soft tissue and wounds at a level (typically in the order of microtesla) below the patient's heat sensory perception threshold. These stimulators usually apply short-duration, pulsed, radio-frequency energy, resulting in a very small temperature increase on the target tissue (less than one degree Celsius). The stimulators typically consist of a stationary or portable electrically powered (e.g., battery) generator, probes including appropriate transducers (usually coils) to be placed near the treatment area, and a cable to deliver the signals from the generator to the probe. Soft tissue/wound electromagnetic stimulators are intended to promote healing in the treatment of wounds and/or other soft-tissue injuries.
