TCLA - Rebox Principle
Transcutaneous Correction of Local Acidosis (TCLA)
Any kind of tissue injury is accompanied by local acidosis which is an important trigger for pain perception. Cathode stimulation with specific Rebox high-density microcurrents corrects local acidosis which leads to a rapid reduction of pain and suppression of inflammation.
How Rebox Works
Rebox is a generator of specific DC electric pulses. Rebox microcurrents are introduced into the treated area non-invasively through a patient´s skin with a touch of a small point treatment electrode while the patient holds a second cylindrical electrode to complete electric circuit.
Within several seconds, local acidosis in the target area is corrected, which results in prompt analgetic effect. Concurrently, muscle relaxation and reduction of swelling occur.
Usual application time in one point is 3-5 seconds, totally 20-30 points at a distance of 1-2 cm are treated during a session. Total number of sessions is individual and depends on character and chronicity of the injury.
