Distance between two poles in EPTE

Interpolar distance: safety in electrolysis application

The interpolar distance (distance between the two poles anode and cathode) has a main role in the electric safety when the electrolysis technique is applied. Galvanic current flows through the tissues between the two points, and will affect them depending on their degeneration level: pathologic tissue has a lower resistance to current electrical flow (electrical resistance) due its physic and biological features. Both in the cathode and anode (negative pole and positive pole) some histologic changes will be produced due…

Percutaneous electrolysis intensity and safety

Intensity in percutaneous electrolysis: a safety issue

Percutaneous electrolysis Therapy treatment has shown to be effective in damaged tendons thanks to the effect of galvanic current. In the case of EPTE®, percutaneous electrolysis therapy, an intensity of  treatment measured in micro-ampers (a milion part of an Amper) is applied. To choose low intensity (micro-Amps instead of mili-Amps) is a safety issue.

5 things you should know about electrolysis (most of all, if you are a physio!)

EPTE Percutaneous Electrolysis Percutaneous, has had a great succes in the last years. However, electrolysis is not a new thing. It was discovered in the 19th century. Its therapeutical applications and research started 30 years ago. The electrolysis was fortuitously discovered by the english chemist William Nicholson in the 1800 while we was studying the electrical processes in the batteries. The electrolysis laws were developed some years later by the famous chemist and physicist Michael Faraday. The electrolysis is a physical…
