EMS Primo Combination Unit 860

The Primo Combination 860 offers dual frequency ultrasound (1MHz and 3MHz) and the complete range of stimulation outputs that can be used individually or simultaneously in combination therapy.

The Primo Combination 860 unit provides 4 pole and 2 pole interferential therapy as well as a wide range of other electrical stimulation waveforms. Therapeutic voltage and current waveforms may be applied to a wide range of conditions with successful outcomes. These include acute and subacute traumatic and inflammatory conditions, chronic rheumatoid and arthritic conditions, and for pain relief.

Combination therapy with the Primo Combination 860 involves the simultaneous application of ultrasound with an electrical stimulation therapy. By combining ultrasound with interferential therapy, the advantages and effects of each treatment modality can be realised - but lower intensities are used to achieve the effect. The accommodation effects that normally accompany interferential therapy are reduced (or even eliminated). The main advantages of such a combination are in localising lesions (especially chronic), in ensuring accurate localisation of ultrasound treatment to provide increased accuracy / effectiveness in treating deeper lesions, and in treating trigger points.
