Mini Muscle Stimulator
Faradic Current is a short frequency therapeutic current which stimulates motor nerves and causes contraction of the muscle to which they supply. Faradic current is not painful to the patient. No form of the Faradic current is used on completely denervated muscles.It can be classified into 2 types:
- Plain Faradic: This includes single stimulation with no interruption i.e. it is continuous current.
- Surged Faradic: It is interrupted therapeutic current and it is also called modified Faradic current.
Galvanic Current is a Direct Electric Current. It can also be classified into 2 types:
- Plain Galvanic: Its direction of polarity is constant and passes continuously in one direction only.
- Intermittent or interrupted Galvanic: When galvanic current is reduced to zero suddenly from its peak value electronically it is called Intermittent or Interrupted galvanic current.
