What is Tecar energy Technology?
Tecar 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.
Studies conducted over the last thirty years have shown that its therapeutic effects naturally stimulate tissue regeneration and reduce pain.
Tecar energy (a high frequency current) is very popular with athletes and many other patients at Physioneeds due to its therapeutic benefits.
Tecar is an energy technology delivered by physiotherapists that promotes faster functional recovery.
