CLEVELAND (PRWEB) April 16, 2018

Richmar, the innovation leaders in the physiotherapy equipment industry, announced today the release of its new TheraTouch® DX2 Shortwave Diathermy product. The TheraTouch

DX2 brings new innovations in safety and efficacy to the shortwave diathermy modality not currently offered by competitive models on the market, including:

  •     Six dosing options including the addition of two new dosimetry modes within Dose III, made possible by Scientific Dosage Control (SDC) – SDC M and SDC H – provide tighter titration and gentler, safer treatments;
  •     High Efficiency Auto Tuning (HEAT) Technology which provides efficient coupling for rapid heating and shorter treatment times;
  •     A robust mechanical arm with five articulation points is easily positioned for improved patient comfort while withstanding the everyday rigors of clinical use;
  •     A full-color touch screen interface equipped with 15 preset evidence-based protocols – six dosimetry protocols and nine quick links by indication – and an anatomical library with placement guidelines;
  •     Advanced onboard software allowing therapists to store up to 99 user-defined favorites.

The TheraTouch DX2 Shortwave Diathermy is a very sophisticated, yet simple-to-use unit, and therapists can easily begin treatment with a few quick touches to the home screen.
