What is the ElesAs?
The made in Japan "ElesAs" is a portable microcurrent therapy unit TO RELIEVE PAIN & RELEASE MUSCLE TENSION.
The latest innovation in “ElesAs” technology. “ElesAs” is a microcurrent therapy unit which has been studied and refined with focusing the output current waveform, and it has high treatment effects to relieve pain and to release muscle tension. Now every physical therapist can experience the benefits of “ElesAs” technology.
Injury to the body disrupts its normal electrical activity. For improvement of this condition, “ElesAs” produces minute electrical signals like those naturally occurring when the body repairs damaged tissues, and by applying the microcurrent programmed in “ElesAs”, it is normalized the electrical activity in the body and the healing process of the body is enhanced. So, it is helpful in pain-relieving effect, swelling reduction and muscular relaxation. “ElesAs” is available to set the output current, 25 to 600μA and the frequency, 0.3 to 2000 Hz.
How does it work?
The "ElesAs" establishes a two-way communication between its own computer circuitry and the area of the patient's body being treated. It measures such things as tissue conductivity which is generally very low in an area of pain. It treats by introducing a gentle current in waveforms similar to the body's own electrical current. This increases the electrical activity of the affected tissue so that the cells can begin the work of self-repair.
How long does the treatment take?
Each treatment will take from a few to thirty minutes, depending on the extent of the problem(s) and the number of treatments you have already had. For example, it takes longer to treat the shoulders, neck and back than simply to treat a painful wrist, foot or ankle. Since the effects are cumulative, each additional "ElesAs" treatment generally takes less and less time.
How long does the relief last?
The relief is cumulative; in other words, the relief will last longer and longer with each additional treatment. The goal, of course, is permanent relief. After the initial series of treatments, many people have permanent pain relief and never need another "ElesAs" treatment for the same condition. Your therapist will prescribe a maintenance program tailored to your specific case in order to maintain the pain-free state.
