axomera brief description
The multi-patented Axomera therapy (percutaneous bioelectric current stimulation) is a new, transformational, microprocessor-controlled stimulation method that is increasingly used by orthopedists, sports physicians and pain therapists for the conservative treatment of acute and chronic disorders of the tendons, ligaments and muscles. It is based on the modulation of static, tissue-specific electric fields.
axomera is different from all other medical stimulation methods known to us
Until now, almost all medical electrical stimulation methods have used the highest possible currents and/or frequencies to attenuate action potentials of peripheral nociceptors and thus reduce the central perception of pain.
Such methods include transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), percutaneous stimulation (e.g., electroacupuncture) and surgically implanted devices such as peripheral nerve stimulators (PNS), spinal cord stimulators (SCS) and dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulators. All these electrical stimulation devices work in a similar way and use the same electrophysiological principle. Dynamic, pulsed bipolar electrical stimuli (1-70 V, 1-90 mA, 1-1200 Hz, pulse width of 0.2-250 ms) are used to overstimulate neurons to the point that they no longer generate action potentials, thereby interrupting afferent conduction in motor or neurological pain conditions. These electrical devices are widely used and clinically established, even though their clinical efficacy has not been clearly proven. The treatment is aimed only at pain suppression, and there is no clinical claim or evidence that these methods improve recovery or healing. Another class of electrical stimulation uses thermal and similar methods. These include electrochemical ablation (percutaneous thermocoagulation or electrolysis) to reduce anatomical pressure on a nerve, interrupt nociception and promote consecutive angiogenesis and tissue repair.
