I-Therm                                           

The healing power of deep penetrating heat is widespread and profound. Molecular Hyperthermia Therapy (I-Therm) is a therapeutic technology that artificially raises the temperature of targeted areas of the body to promote healing. I-Therm utilizes the body’s natural response to heat to provide the desired therapeutic effect. 

A dramatic increase in regional blood flow is the most important physiological response associated with I-Therm.  When local muscle tissue temperatures exceed 42°C (108°F), the body naturally counters with a surge of cool blood to prevent the muscle from overheating.  This in turn increases nutrients and oxygen to the treated area, critical for anabolic processes and necessary for tissue repair. Sekins and colleagues successfully demonstrated that muscle tissue heated to 45° C (113°F) increased blood flow up to 1500%.

Increased blood flow accelerates the removal of both necrotic debris and excess fluids.  Hyperthermia enhances apoptosis, and advances production and secretion of cytokines that reduce inflammation and encourage cellular repair.  Unlike drugs that exert their anti-inflammatory affect systemically, I-Therm exerts its affect only to the targeted area.

I-Therm puts forth its analgesic affect by washing out inflammatory cytokines from the affected area.  Heat has been shown to increase ATPase activity thus increasing the elasticity of the collagen in connective tissues. 

The patented technology produces a shortwave electromagnetic field at the optimized UHF frequency to induce hyperthermia in targeted tissues up to 15 cm (6 in) beneath the skin.  It is engineered to maximize the specific absorption rate, resulting in optimal therapeutic warming temperatures within 5 minutes and maintains these temperatures for the duration of therapy. 

Unlike side-effect producing drugs that simply mask the symptoms associated with disease, I-Therm works in concert with the body’s natural immune processes to unlock the body’s amazing power to heal.The healing power of deep penetrating heat is widespread and profound.
