T.E.C.A.R means Transfer of Capacitive And Resistive Energy

Tecar is high frequency alternating current.

According to the principle of Dr. D’Arsonval, Tecar causes a flow of ions through rapid electrical oscillations in the cellular environment.

The scientific and physical term to describe this phenomenon is the permittivity of the cell membrane.

Scientific studies have shown that 300kHz -1200kHz induces an increase in intra and extracellular exchanges and a diathermic effect on living tissue

Winback tecartherapy has three effects to accelerate rehabilitation.

It makes the plasma membrane permeable, stimulating intra- and extracellular exchanges.

Relieve pain

Inhibits the transmission of pain messages by saturating nociceptors. The result? An immediate & lasting pain relief enabling therapists to work more smoothly et efficiently.

Restore movement

Increases temperature helping to release muscle tension and improve vascularization to make movement easier. Gain freedom and range of motion.

Boost metabolism

Stimulates intra and extracellular exchanges. The natural resistance of biological tissues increases, creating diathermy which is used by the vascular/lymphatic system.
