Original Abstract

This paper deals with a new electrotherapeutic method for use in physiatric treatment. The micro-pulse stimulation is based on the combination of three electrotherapeutic methods: burst therapy, high-voltage pulsed current therapy, and microelectrostimulation. Micro-pulse stimulation is special for its unusual configuration of pulse parameters; high-voltage electric pulses are safely used as a result of a cumulative effect of the subthreshold monophasic pulses with a very short duration. This combination of parameters should connect the advantages of used methods. This includes an analgesic effect without any obvious adaptation of the stimulated tissue and making the tissue penetration easier. As the micro-pulse stimulation was designed especially for the treatment of swelling and pain in animal therapy, the device is small, portable, battery-operated and easy to use.
