Neurodyn Aussie Sport

Neurodyn Aussie Sport is electric current application equipment for applying electrical current via electrodes in direct contact with the patient. It is a transcutaneous neuromuscular stimulator which uses microcomputer technology, that is, it is controlled by a computer, and is operated by touch screen. All the information related to the parameters selected by the physiotherapist will be shown in the alphanumeric liquid crystal display.

Neurodyn Aussie Sport stimulator produces AUSSIE CURRENT (also called Australian Current), a “new generation” of electrical current for stimulation with some advantages on the traditional methods of stimulation (Russian, Interferential, TENS e FES). This technique is non-invasive, non-addictive, and without undesirable side effects.

There are four output channels with independent intensity controls which permit or not simultaneous stimulation of four different areas during a treatment section. Aussie current is a kind of sinusoidal current with carrier frequency of either 1.000Hz or 4.000Hz with burst duration of 4 ms or 2 ms, modulated in pulse trains (bursts) of variable frequency ranging from 1 to 120 Hz. The stimulation can be provided in the following ways:

• Continuous Mode in which the sensation of stimulation is continuous and constant.

•Synchronized Mode (with ON, OFF, Rise and Decay ramps) in which the four channels operate at the same time, that is, synchronized. The sensation of stimulation is according to the time chosen in the ramps.

• Reciprocal Mode (with ON, OFF, Rise and Decay ramps) in which channels 1 and 3 operate alternately with channels 3 and 4. The sensation of stimulation follows the selected time chosen on the ramps.

• Pre- programmed protocols are available. The program just needs to be selected and, the intensity of the treatment needs to be defined.
