Scientific Dosage Control

With the TheraTouch DX2's tighter titration, two additional dosimetry options are now available.

Traditional diathermy units provide a dosimetric scale categorized by four doses:
• DOSE I - Subthermal
• DOSE II - Mild Heat
• DOSE III - Low Heat
• DOSE IV - Vigorous Heat

The unique parameters afforded by Richmar's exclusive Scientific Dosage Control (SDC), allows for an increased thermal effect with decreased risk.

The heating effect from Dose IV can be uncomfortable due to decreased muscle mass and/or the thinness of the skin, such as with geriatric patients. To better meet the needs of these patients, SDC provides two additional increments of heating to Dose III:
• DOSE III SDC M - Moderate Heat
• DOSE III SDC H - High Heat

High Efficiency Auto-Tuning (H.E.A.T.)

The resonant auto-tuning technology found in the TheraTouch DX2 continually adjusts to provide consistent coupling, based on calculations of the patient's impedence, size, and body density. This ensures maximum energy transmission, without resorting to a higher dosage, resulting in faster heating and shorter treatment times.

Microcirculation Indication

The Microcirculation Indication is an exclusive parameter located within the TheraTouch DX2. Studies indicate that subthermal pulsed shortwave diathermy can enhance the rate of tissue healing and be an effective adjunct therapy.* This indication can be especially helpful in long term care and skilled nursing facilities.
