What is the I-Tech Ar?

Can anyone tell me more about the I-Tech Ar resistive/capacitive diathermy? What modality is this device comparable to and how does it compare with similar modalities/units on the market? A physio friend has been offered a demo of this but does not know what it does or how it works? It is a new product and I am looking to the forum for more information and clarification on what modality it is comparable to and if there is any evidence supporting its use?

Annie. I do not know that specific product, but from the terms you have included, I would reckon that it is a radio frequency device (can be used in both capacitive and resistive modes). The others like it that I have used and which I am currently research/publishing are Indiba (http://www.indibaactiv.com/) and other variations which use the term TECAR in their product name. That might help you to find other equivalent devices. Just done a quick web search, and yes, it IS like Indiba and Tecar. (Indiba uses 448kHz and the one that you mention uses 455kHz - so pretty close) Tim
