NeuroTrac IFC Rehab

The NeuroTrac IFC Rehab provides a unique set of features suitable for pain and recovery management of knees, elbows, shoulders and limbs in general. The deep strong Interferential current targets the joints and deep tissues of limbs. At the same time you may want to use the TENS and NMES. For example: use IFC for joint regeneration, at the same time use high frequency TENS on the spine for more effective pain relief.

IFC Interferential

Continuous, Abrupt, Sweep, Intermittent, Combined

Continuous TENS

Good for Pain Gate Mechanism.

Work/Rest Stimulation (NMS)

Good for augment the strength of either injured or healthy muscle.

Modulated TENS

Good for long-term pain relief treatment.

Burst TENS

Good for local pain relief .

NeuroTrac™ IFC Rehab is a pain control and muscle stimulator device. It combines Interferential stimulator (IFC), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) and Neuromuscular Electrical stimulator (NMES) in one unit. The device consists of two independent circuits, one for IFC, another for TENS/NMES stimulation. There are two output Channels for the NMES and another two for the IFC allowing it to operate 2 pairs of electrodes for each side of the device. They are all isolated from each other and work independently with no exchange of current between any of the channels. IFC Rehab has 11 built- in preset programmes for Interferential stimulation, 12 for TENS stimulation and 15 for NMES stimulation. Additionally there are custom programmes (2 for IFC, 2 for NMES and 1 for TENS) which allow to vary programme parameters.

Modes

  • IFC Interferential – Continuous, Abrupt, Sweep,Intermittent, Combined.
  • Continuous TENS – good for Pain Gate Mechanism.
  • Modulated TENS – good for long-term pain relief treatment.
  • Burst TENS – good for local pain relief .
  • Work/Rest stimulation (NMES) – good for increasing the strength of either injured or healthy muscle. Generally it is used on the superficial muscles of the arms and shoulders, the legs, and lower back.

IFC Programmes (left side of the unit)

  • Abrupt (ABP). Output with low frequency for a set dwell time and then abrupt change to high frequency for the same dwell time. Cycle is repeated over programme duration.
    Preset Programmes: P01, 02, 03, 06, 07
  • Sweep (SWP). Sweep is also known as Ramp type or Modulated type. Stimulation frequency ramps smoothly from low frequency to high frequency
    for a defined modulation time, then back . Cycle is repeated over
    programme duration.
    Preset Programmes: P04, 05, 06, 07
  • Intermittent (Work / Rest). Intermittent stimulation where output amplitude ramps up in 0.5 sec. to
    adjusted level and stimulates for a defined WORK time , then it ramps down in 0.5 sec. to 0 mA, and stays with no stimulation for a defined REST time.
    Cycle is repeated over programme duration.
    Preset Programmes: P08, 09, 10, 11. Custom programme PC2 can be adjusted.
  • Continuous (CON). Train of constant value pulses on both channels delivered with no interruption for entire treatment period.
    Preset Programmes: P10, 11. Custom programme PC1 can be adjusted.

TENS & NMS Programmes (right side of the unit)

  • Continuous (CON). Train of constant value pulses on both channels delivered with no interruption for entire treatment period.
  • Burst (BST). Regular burst of pulses ( nine pulses of 200µS or 175 µS at 150Hz) repeated 2 times per second .This mode is comparable to the low rate TENS technique except that each low rate pulse is substituted for by a short BURST of pulses. It is a combination of conventional and low rate TENS.
  • Modulated (MOD). Systematic modulation (lowering from and rising to the maximum settings) of the pulse duration and pulse frequency . This mode was designed to help prevent nerve accommodation that some patient’s experience. It is achieved by continuously cycling the pulse width and rate.
  • Work / Rest (NMS). Intermittent stimulation where output amplitude ramps up in  to adjusted level and stimulates for a defined  WORK time , then it ramps down  to 0 mA, and stays with no stimulation for a defined REST time. Cycle is repeated over programme duration.

IFC

  • Amplitude: 0-50mA (indication only; actual mA
    will tend to be less than indicated due to electrode impedance)
  • Interference frequency: 1-150 Hz (this you feel) on carrier 4kHz which you don’t feel.
  • Pulse width: 125 μS.
  • Output configuration: Quadra polar (4 -electrodes)
    – Output Channel 1 delivers Carrier frequency
    – Output Channel 2 delivers Adjustable frequency
    Interference occurs within tissue, maximal at point of intersection among four electrodes

TENS – selectable in PC1

  • Amplitude: 0-80mA (indication only; actual mA
    will tend to be less than indicated due to electrode impedance)
  • Frequency: 2-200Hz (2% accuracy)
  • Pulse Width: 50-300μS (2% accuracy)

NMS – selectable in PC2 & PC3

  • Amplitude: 0-90mA (indication only; actual mA
    will tend to be less than indicated due to electrode impedance)
  • Frequency: 2-100Hz (2% accuracy)
  • Pulse Width: 50-450μS (2% accuracy)
