Background Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is an established therapy that has been widely used for many decades to improve circulation in the legs. However, studies using NMES devices in an elderly, ambulant, and otherwise apparently healthy population are lacking; this is despite the use of such devices being indicated for lower leg sy...
Article
This study investigated the effect of 448 kHz capacitive resistive monopolar radiofrequency (CRMRF) on the superficial and deep physiological responses of patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee(s). Forty-five patients diagnosed with OA in their knee(s) were enrolled into a three-group randomised controlled study, from the waiting list of a l...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: This study investigated whether capacitive resistive monopolar radiofrequency (CRMRF)-based treatment improves pain and function among patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Design and setting: Three-group randomised controlled trial with concealed allocation, participant blinding and intention-to-treat analysis. Forty-five patient...
Article
Radiofrequency-based electrophysical agents (EPA) have been used in therapy practice over several decades (e.g., shortwave therapies). Currently, there is insufficient evidence supporting such devices operating below shortwave frequencies. This laboratory-based study investigated the skin physiological effects of 448 kHz capacitive resistive monopo...

Currently, there is insufficient evidence supporting such EPAs operating below shortwave frequencies.

Article
Background: Radiofrequency (RF)-based electrophysical agents (EPAs) have been employed in therapy-related clinical practice for several decades. They are used to reduce pain and inflammation and promote tissue healing. Although deemed less popular in current therapy practice, surveys suggest that some of these EPAs are still used reasonably widely....
Article
Purpose: Radiofrequency-based electrophysical agents are widely used in therapy-related clinical practice for their thermal effects, mainly relieving pain and inflammation and improving tissue extensibility. The most commonly used and researched are shortwave therapies that operate at 27.12 MHz. Although relatively new, electrophysical agents empl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Purpose: Claims about the efficacy of electrophysical agents (EPAs) used in therapy are based on their ability to influence bodily physiological mechanisms thereby reducing pain and promoting tissue healing. Radiofrequency (RF)-based EPAs are among those that claim to improve blood flow as well as elasticity of tissues with their deep heating abili...
Article
Background: Radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RFEMF or simply RF)-based electrophysical agents (EPAs) have been employed in therapy-related clinical practice for several decades. They are used to reduce pain and inflammation and enhance tissue healing. Although these agents have generally become less popular in contemporary therapy practice, su...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Background: Radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RFEMF) based electrophysical agents have been employed in therapy-related clinical practice for several decades. They are used to reduce pain and inflammation and enhance tissue healing. The most commonly used and hence the most widely researched are continuous and pulsed shortwave therapies (operat...
