Since 1968 Mettler Electronics has produced shortwave diathermy (SWD) unit that produces comforting deep heat in muscle tissues. Shortwave diathermy is used when the clinician needs to provide deep heat to a larger area than normally covered by ultrasound. The illustration below shows the relative penetration of various heating modalities.


The Auto*Therm 395 features continuous and pulsed shortwave diathermy. This advanced, automatic tuning unit has no less than eight different treatment applicators: three inductive coil applicators, three spaced condenser sets and two soft, flexible plate electrodes. High performance, multi-jointed arms lock in place for ease of use and safety. A membrane panel and intensity control knob make treatment set-ups quick and easy. Each Auto*Therm 395 comes complete with two treatment arms, two 13 cm diameter condenser applicators and cables and one 14 cm diameter inductive coil applicator and cable.

Q:  Is the 395 more powerful than the 390/391?
A: Yes. The 395 operates at 200 watts in the continuous mode and 400 watts in the pulsed mode. The 390 operates at 100 watts in the continuous mode and 200 watts in the pulsed mode.

Q:  Why would need the extra power?
A: Some conditions require higher output levels to treat. Certain patients will require the extra output levels as well.

Q: Is there more than one applicator for the 395?
A: Yes. The 395 has 8 applicators to choose from.

Q: What is the biggest difference between the 395 and the 391?
A: Not only is the 395 twice a powerful, it allows for continuous tuning of the patient throughout the entire treatment. It reads the patients resistance level and puts out intensity accordingly. It has the ability to increase or decrease output based on patient movement. This technology assures the clinician that the patient is getting the optimal treatment 100% of the time. The 390 also has this self tuning capability but only during the first 5 seconds of the treatment.

Q:   I have seen a couple other diathermy units on the market. Why should I buy the Mettler?
A: Mettler has been manufacturing diathermy units in the US since 1968. Mettler is a pioneer in the field of shortwave diathermy. No other company has the history and expertise that Mettler does.

Q: If I purchase the diathermy how do I get it calibrated?
A: Mettler has biomed service companies all across the country that can calibrate and service your diathermy unit.
