HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) technology trial.
Offers up to 20,000 muscle contractions per session.
This technology simply mimics the action potential of nerves that cause muscle contractions, in a thoroughness and intensity that you could not physically perform through voluntary exercise.
By engaging the muscles in such a way, we aim to re-educate muscle contraction patterns, improve the range of motion, increasing local circulation, prevent or treat disuse atrophy, relax muscle spasms.
Whilst initially devised for physiotherapy use it has since been taken up by aesthetic clinics aiming to sculpt body shapes by engaging muscles, research is therefore somewhat lacking for its clinical use. Whilst we have little doubt this will benefit and speed up the process of rehabilitation the risk factors of who are the better candidates for selection is a relative unknown.
Patients prone to sensitive inflamed muscle tissue will especially need to proceed with caution. Excitement of inflamed tissue could lead to a short-term increase in pain locally, therefore use of this technology directly on areas of concern (e.g., calf pain in sciatica) will be carefully timed to attempt to mitigate this set of circumstances from occurring.
Patients with significant fat stores may not be ideal candidates for HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic). The HIFEM energy used to power our penetrates to about 7 cm. Those with thicker fat stores may not get as significant muscle contraction, resulting in fewer results following treatment.
Pregnant and nursing females should not undergo treatment with HIFEM. Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner, or cramping is increased/intensified with HIFEM treatments, therefore we recommend not undergoing treatment during this time of the month.
Possible contraindications to treatment include the following:
Pregnancy or nursing
I the undersigned acknowledge that I have read the information (above) and to the best of my knowledge have none of the contraindications outlined. I hereby consent to join the trial of HIFEM technology currently being conducted at the clinic.
