What is the Skanlab NG Pro device?

The Skanlab NG Pro diathermy device is intended for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, degenerative musculoskeletal conditions and pain, and as part of a physiotherapy regimen that may include other treatments. Specific applications include:

• Acceleration of soft tissue and muscle healing after injury

• Control of pain, including joint pain

• Acceleration of joint healing and arthritis

• Better elasticity in muscles and soft tissues

 

And Skanlab NG Pro is also widely used for PREVENTIVE TREATMENT

How it works:

Skanlab NG Pro generates an electrostatic field energy with a frequency of 500 kHz (0.5 MHz). The watt power is 25 watts, and the power is based on creating an alternating static current that creates an electrodynamic field and therefore uses the complex of electrodynamics. The unit is classified as a longwave (600m) diathermy device (monopolar). The current is characterized by being a capacitive high-frequency current.

 

The device itself is grounded, but the patient circuit does not contain a "real" grounding electrode. Treatment electrode, and the patient's current return electrode are only part of the circuit to treat the patient, and to close the circuit. The patient's tissue is also part of this circuit. The effect of the heating is generated in the tissue under the treatment electrode.

 

The Skanlab device operates by dielectric or capacitance - When dielectrically connected diathermy is used, a rapidly alternating voltage differential is created which produces a rapidly alternating electric field in a circuit. The treatment electrode and the patient's return electrode are placed with adequate and optimal skin contact with the patient. The electric field penetrates into the tissues (through the surface of the enamel on the treatment electrode and the patient's skin tissue) in the relevant area of ​​the body. The energy enters the tissue via the treatment electrode and emits energy in the form of heat, and returns the electrode to the return current via the patient, thereby closing the circuit.

 

The heating effect in the tissue is below the treatment electrode. Due to the electrical charges in the tissue molecules, the tissue molecules will try to align with the rapidly changing electric field. This rapid movement, or alternation, of the molecules causes friction or collision with other molecules and produces heat in the tissue. The electric field strength is determined by the degree of potential difference between the electrodes set by the device's current regulator. Since the frequency is not varied, the average effect determines the actual effect of the heating. The heating itself is due to loss of energy in the tissue. This in turn provides less energy through the surrounding tissue and to the patient return current electrode.
