Skanlab Therapy™ is a treatment device which was developed in 1988 in Norway. It is based on the capacitor field system. The device generates a high frequency alternating current field at 500kHz (long-wave diathermy) in which the patient forms a part of the capacitor.
Skanlab Therapy™ generates an optimal, local deep heat, which immediately increases local circulation, reduces pain, improves elasticity and therefore improves mobility.
The deep heat device is mainly applied to acute, subacute and chronic injuries within the muscular and skeletal area. Herein the simultaneous active therapy (e.g. the REHAPE concept) boosts the positive effects.
