Development and protocols for H-Wave were based on the well-established facts that fluid shifts and pressures are essential for tissues to heal and to create homeostasis in an injured area. It’s also valuable to point out that publications show that inflammation of joints and compartmental swelling are a leading cause of disability in the U.S. Therefore, the H-Wave device was specifically designed to improve circulation and enhance fluid shifts; thereby, addressing the inflammation that is so often the causative factor in pain and disabilities. By simply placing adhesive pads on the skin and connecting to the device, H-Wave can create very comfortable and strong muscle contractions. A 30 minute treatment will contract muscles and increase fluid shifts in the area, significantly addressing symptoms in the most rehabilitative way possible. The goal of H-Wave is never to mask symptoms, but rather to speed recovery and/or manage chronic symptoms with several treatments per day/week depending on the situation. Published research has shown that the specific technology of H-Wave represents a paradigm shift in electro-therapeutic treatment and produces the optimal non-fatiguing stimulation for fluid shifts.
Some conditions require additional pain relief that fluid shifts don’t entirely address. This is why H-Wave has a secondary mode that is focused entirely on shutting down pain and breaking the pain cycle. Again, in this setting H-Wave is not intending to mask pain while the device is on, but rather create a strong anesthetic affect with significant and lasting relief after a 30 minute treatment. The H-Wave device is so unique and capable of shutting down pain that we have FDA clearance for electrical anesthesia in the field of dentistry. The same technology employed with our medical devices is used in a dental device in which we are cleared to perform amalgams, composites and even crown preparations with nothing but H-Wave for anesthesia.
There are many types of electrical stimulation devices on the market with different treatment goals and varying outcomes. H-Wave utilizes a completely distinct technology developed by Electronic Waveform Lab, and our treatment system is not available from any other brand name or company. It is also important to point out that it is not only other electronic devices that comprise our true competition. Competitors include every other treatment (prescription drugs, for instance) used to manage musculoskeletal pain and treat disability, many of which are much more expensive and carry risks unassociated with H-Wave. We feel that H-Wave can often be the better, safer and most cost-effective prescription treatment available.
The H-Wave device is a unique electro-therapeutic treatment to aid in functional restoration and pain control. The H-Wave was developed and is manufactured right here in the U.S. by Electronic Waveform Lab. The H-Wave and its treatment system is not available by any other company or brand name.
H-Wave comes in three models. The 3-channel clinical model is primarily used in a therapy or training room setting, while the 2-channel home models are primarily intended for personal use by patients. Both models have identical output parameters and work in the same manner, but battery life and number of pads vary. Both models are battery powered, and the home model is specifically designed to be portable. Patients can easily travel with their home devices and can wear or carry them while in use. We also manufacture our own accessories which are specifically designed for the H-Wave device. These accessories maximize the effectiveness and safety of H-Wave. Please feel free to contact us to determine which model or accessories fit your needs.
