Conventional TENS and Neuromuscular Stimulators deliver most of the stimulation directly under the electrodes. Interferential Stimulator Current penetrates to even greater depth and over a larger volume of tissue than other forms of electrical therapy.
Pre and post-orthopedic surgery, joint injury syndrome, cumulative trauma disorders, increasing circulation and pain control of various origins. Interferential Therapy is used in the treatment of circulatory disorders, range of motion, edema and muscle spasms. Post-op patients will use the device 3 times a day for 15 minutes over a period of 14 - 30 days.

Interferential Units – helps control pain and speeds the healing process by delivering small pulses of electrical current to an injury through electrodes that pass current through the skin and stimulate underlying nerves producing a mild, tingling sensation to provide relief from chronic and acute pain. Interferential is used for very localized areas where deep current for pain control or increased circulation is needed.
How does Interferential therapy differ from TENS?
Interferential differs from conventional muscle stimulation and TENS in that it delivers concentrated stimulation deeper into the affected tissue. Interferential exploits the interference of two separately generated sinusoidal currents applied to the body simultaneously. This low frequency current treatment that uses two medium frequency currents which "interfere" with each other to produce a beat frequency that the body recognizes as a low frequency energy source. The range of this frequency is usually 1-250 Hz. The body itself produces low frequency currents between 1 and 256 Hz.
These currents are produced across the cell membranes by ionic exchange, and they will vary depending upon the tissue involved. By using frequencies in this range, different systems within the body can be stimulated.
The LG-A4000 helps control pain and speeds the healing process by delivering small pulses of electrical current to an injury through electrodes that pass current through the skin. Interferential Units are used for localized areas where deep current for pain control or increased circulation is needed.
