MCT works in concert with the natural electrical nature of the body to aid it in the creating the ideal environment for self-healing. Injured cells that are inflamed or in pain actually resist and block the bodys natural healing current. Painmaster relies on pulsating currents which are below perceptible levels and are finely tuned to match the body's own electrical exchanges.
These currents flow through the affected tissue from one patch to the other, helping to stimulate natural healing processes such as the production of ATP *, protein synthesis, oxygenation, nutrient absorption and more. Micro Current Therapy, commonly referred to as MENs (Micro current Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation), uses small, pulsating currents of electricity. These currents have been finely tuned to the level of the normal electrical exchanges which take place at the cellular level within the body. Being more biologically compatible, these currents can penetrate the cell as opposed to passing over it, as is the case with other stimulation devices do.
- The MCT therapeutic current flows through the tissue and causes a charge alteration in the cells.
- Current flows in the body from the anode (red light) to the cathode.
Two self-adherent active electrode patches, linked by a wire, generate the current of 50A (micro amperes). This current is about 5% of the commonly used factor of 1 mA (mille ampere) for electro therapy like TENS machines.
The treatment, however, lasts significantly longer than that of the higher current devices and continues its healing effect even after the removal of the patches.
Crucial to treatment is the quantity of charge carriers Q (ions), which are being moved within the body tissues in the electrical field between the electrodes. The measure of the degree of stimulation is cumulative in accordance with the equation:
Q(carrier) = I (current) x t (time)Standard Device
Q= 1mA x 0.5 hrs. = 0.5ma hrs.Painmaster MCT Device
Q= 50 A x 24 hrs. = 1.2mA hrs.
