SYN: neutral faradic bath


from Dr GK Abbott's Prescriptions...

For general procedure see Neutral Electric Baths

  • Need a large induction coil to supply strong current and an interruptor for both rapid and slow frequency
  • Not as good as Sinusoidal Tub Bath as alterations are sharp and therefore more uncomfortable. Use the sinusoidal where possible.
  • Slow or medium - Stimulating or Tonic - 5-6min
  • Rapid - Sedative - given at lower current strength (amps) for 10- 15min
