History of high frequency current
WINBACK energy (high frequency current) is popular with thousands of patients and top level sports people due to its therapeutic benefits, and has become famous worldwide with more than 2,500 centres taking up the technology in 3 years.
WINBACK energy is a high frequency current oscillating between 300 kHz and 1 MHz. It accelerates “the natural regeneration” of organic tissue. Its low intensity means the energy is completely non-invasive and 100% natural for the human body.
High frequency current has more than demonstrated its effectiveness in the domains of orthopaedic surgery, cosmetic medicine and more recently in the field of rehabilitation. Studies conducted over the last thirty years have shown that its therapeutic effects naturally stimulate tissue regeneration and reduce pain.
C. Gabriel’s research team highlighted the permeability of cell membranes at frequencies of 300 kHz – 1 MHz by analysing several types of biological tissues in their study entitled “The dielectric properties of biological tissues”. Membrane polarization can no longer occur thanks to the use of WINBACK energy, as it facilitates intra- and extra-cellular exchange.
The theoretical aspects and major conclusions of this research have been mentioned in several scientific studies: Arsonval 1890 – Rudolf Hober 1910 – Schwan and Schwan 1957 – Foster 1980 – Stuchly and Stuchly 1980 – Pethig 1984 – Pethig and Kell 1987 – Foster and Schwan 1989 – C. Gabriel 1996. This community of researchers was interested in the cellular properties of biological tissues and the dielectric phenomena that were produced under high frequency current. In the majority of these studies, researchers agree that cellular responses are a function of the frequency and the type of biological tissue.
