Enraf – Nonius Curapuls 670
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.
