BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF TCARE
The electrical equilibrium (difference in membrane potential) of the cell and the physiological molecular movement that characterizes its matrix, form the basis for the health of any organism. Applying a capacitor (TCARE) to tissue, creates a displacement current due to attraction/repulsion charges that effects what is called the basic non-specific Pischinger tissue, i.e. the relationship between cells and their microenvironment, where life is created and destroyed. The oscillation that is reactivated by the displacement current, exerts its beneficial effects on all components of the affected tissue (venous, arterial and lymphatic microcirculation, matrix and cell membrane).From a subjective point of view, as we shall see later, this effect can be perceived by the patient as an increase in endogenous heat.While heat produced externally can have some beneficial effects, it can also produce some negative therapeutic side effects; an endogenous increase in temperature never causes any side effects.Experience acquired in the field of the capacitive effect on several thousands patients, has confirmed the physical assumptions already highlighted in literature. For this reason, we must emphasize that for the first few minutes, despite the applied current output, the patient will not feel sensations of any kind, or perceive any muscle or nerve stimulation.In other words, the capacitor effect does not apply any external electrical stimulation, as in the case of electrostimulators, for example, but instead allows the human body’s internal currents to create the necessary conditions to resume their physiological capacity (Brownian motion).It is through this continuous movement of electric charges that information passes through the matrix to cellular receptors.The biological activity of the current is therefore manifested in two ways: 1. the energy effect, supplying energy to intra and extra biological cellular tissue and transforming ADP to ATP; 2. the thermal effect, due to increased impact of ions against one another, producing a local hyperemia which causes an increase in blood flow and consequently an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients.In most treatable pathologies it is essential to increase temperature either directly or indirectly in order to supply oxygen and nutrition to damaged tissues: this is accomplished by applying short bursts of high electrical potentials. The thermal effect varies in relation to the active surface of the electrode and the type of tissue treated. In addition to the biostimulation effect, there is a local indirect increase of arterial circulation and an important effect on venous and lymphatic drainage.
BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT
Resistive Capacitive Energy Transfer (C.R.E.T.) and integrated transdermal transfer currently represents one of the most requested and cost-effective rehabilitation therapy in Italy in other country.
Chinesport strongly recommends taking part in their multi-level training courses for operators that intend to use the TCARE Cellular Regenerator. These courses cover the application / clinical methods for correct use of the equipment and raise awareness as to usage limits. The courses are therefore open to various professional categories, such as doctors, highly specialised nurses, and other specialists, even though they always have to work under the control of a doctor, not so much due to the dangerousness of the equipment, as to achieving adequate efficacy when providing treatment.

REASONS FOR CHOOSING THE TCARE CELLULAR REGENERATOR
Using the TCARE Cellular Regenerator introduces a new feature of the application, in the form of the Capacitive effect of Direct Coupling, compared to current practice. The new features this device introduces are as follows:
The warming sensation generated inside the body depends on various factors, and can be perceived by the patient at intensities that range from warmth to intense internal heat. When using capacitive electrodes, the diameter of the electrode and speed of movement must be considered in particular. For the same amount of power applied, larger diameter electrodes increase the temperature more gradually and, in addition, the faster the electrode is moved, the less the heat sensation felt by the patient.
Direct coupling means using the TCARE Cellular Regenerator with uninsulated metal electrodes. The action mechanism, caused by polarity reversal of the current, produces a quicker and more intense increase in heat in tissue deprived of water and electrolytes. Since the active electrode is not insulated, the current that moves the charges and the temperature generated in the body are less concentrated in the area immediately below the active electrode, producing a directional aspect guided by the passive electrode.
The operator gets the patient to move their knee into flexion/extension to concentrate Tcare action in the inflamed zone and gain a wider range of motion (e.g. knee collateral ligament)
