Interferential Therapy (IFT)
What is Interferential Current Therapy (IFT)?
Interferential Current Therapy Device transmits electrical impulses through the skin into deep underlying injured tissues.
The specific type of electrical impulses has been proven to be beneficial for pain relief, muscle stimulation, increased local blood flow and reduction of edema.
Indication: Who would benefit from VESTA therapy?
