Hako-Med Therapy

What is Electromedicine and Horizontal Therapy?
We have just incorporated a new therapy, known as Horizontal Therapy. This machine (ProElec DT 2000) has been a breakthrough in electromedicine, combining all known forms of exectromedical therapy, in addition to this new revolutionary therapy. It is the most sophisticated form of electrotherapy available.

A German company, Hako-Med, engineered and manufactured this advanced unit to create a unique electrotherapy treatment concept called Horizontal Therapy. The field of electrmedicine has evolved over the years and provided us with electrical muscle stimulation, TENS therapy, microcurrent, inferential therapy, and other forms. Each of these methods of electrotherapy has a particular role in treating a variety of conditions, but none of them approach the therapeutic effects which are combined in the PRO ElecDT 2000 with Horizontal Therapy.

Communication between cells takes place in two ways: bioelectrically and biochemically. Whether the cells are in bone, muscle, ligament or nerve tissue, communication occurs via electrical currents and chemical messengers. When cellular communication is impaired, pain and disease occur, so that the normal functional state is lost. This causes a further breakdown in cellular communication.
Up until now, either the bioelectrical or the biochemical communication could be enhanced with electrotherapy at one time, but, not both at once. With Horizontal Therapy, both bioelectrical and biochemical components can be treated all in one treatment session. By holding the bioelectric intensity constant while changing the frequency, Horizontal Therapy can have a broad spectrum physiologic effect. The PRO ElecDT 2000 preset programs are designed to do this automatically.

What Types of Conditions are Successfully Addressed with Horizontal Therapy?
Conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, low back pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, overuse injuries, various kinds of headaches, muscle spasm, nerve pain, joint swelling, inflammation and many other conditions can be effectively treated with the horizontal therapy.

At low frequencies in the bioelectric range, circulation, lymphatic flow, swelling, pain and muscle function can all be improved. At higher frequencies in the biochemical range, circulation, lymphatic flow, swelling, pain, immune system function, muscle activation and metabolism are enhanced.

Effective Clinical Usage for:

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Sciatic Pain
  • Foot Pain/numbness/peripheral neuropathy
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Post-Op Pain
  • Complex Chronic Pain
  • Muscle Re-education
  • Nerve Stimulation
  • Relax Muscle Spasms
  • Improving Range of Motion
  • Poor Circulation
  • Hand and Wrist Pain

Is Horizontal Therapy Safe?
It should be noted that the bioelectrical currents that are used in the PRO ElecDT 2000 are entirely safe. They have been rigorously tested and have surpassed all standards required for biomedical devices. The current is painless and in most cases is not even felt.
