Principal of Action

bullet

The MCT therapeutic current flows through the tissue and causes a charge alteration in the cells.

bullet

Current flows in the body from the anode (red light) to cathode.

     
         
   

Cumulative Effect

bullet

Two self-adherent active electrode patches, linked by a wire, generate the current of 50µA (micro amperes). This current is about 5% of the commonly used factor of 1 mA (mille ampere) for electrotherapy. The treatment, however, lasts significantly longer than that of the higher current devices.

bullet

Crucial to treatment is the quantity of charge carriers Q (ions), which are being moved in the body tissues in the electrical field between the electrodes. The measure of the degree of stimulation is cumulative in accordance with the equation:

Q(carrier) = I (current) x t (time)

Standard Device

Q= 1mA x 0.5 hrs. = .5ma hrs

Painmaster® Device

Q= 50 µA x 24 hrs. = 1.2mA hrs.

Comparison to TENS

(Transcutanous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

 

 

TEN’s

MCT

Strength of Current

Uses milliamps

Uses microamps (1000 times weaker than TEN’s)

Pain Relief

Blocks transmission of pain carrying C nerve fibres

Stimulates the regeneration of damaged tissue

Effectiveness

Effective in about 40 to 50% of cases

Preliminary observational data reveals it be effective in about 85 % of cases

Ease of Application

Requires co-ordination and dexterity to adjust dials.

Involves placing patches either side of treatment area

Side Effects

Some evidence that the relatively high output may cause cell electrolysis

Might cause a little redness where electrode patches were placed, disappears after 10 minutes

 

Causes discomfort in about one third of users

No discomfort

Sensation

Causes mild tingling to throbbing

Below sensory threshold

Post Treatment

Once switched off, there are no residual benefits

Bioelectrical changes continue even after the MCT treatment stopped
