Electrotherapy on the Web is a site that provides current, non commercial information on various aspects of Electrotherapy. It is not presented as a replacement for current texts but attempts to provide an independent view of the current state of the art. The range of pages and topics continues to expand, and some of the long standing pages get updated whenever I can. There are still some new pages to write and new developments to add all the time

New Website - on the way
Thank you to those who have volunteered to assist with web testing. New site (completely redeveloped) well under way, so hopefully everybody will be able to see an easier to navigate set of pages soon.
More than a MILLION hits!
The website has now clocked up more than a million hits - which is not bad for a site that was originally developed as a way to help students gain access to information - in fact it has gone from 1 million to 1.5 million in the last 6 months!
I am going to try and provide a Twitter service - letting followers know about new Electrotherapy related publications as I find them. Follow here : Follow @ElectroTim
New Chapter on Electrotherapy out in 15th Edition of Tidy's Physiotherapy
For those of you out there in studentland, just to let you know that the new (15th) edition of Tidy's Physiotherapy (2013) edited by Dr Stuart Porter, supported by a host of specialist authors is now out. I was daft enough to volunteers for the Electrotherapy chapter, so you will find a quick resume of some key modlities in there (plus a LOT of additional material). Links to the book on the BOOKS page - as you might expect!
FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions . . .
The FAQ page covers some of the queries that I get through week on week and are largely related to contraindications and associated issues. At the present time I have info on Electrotherapy in . . . . . Pregnancy, Children, Cancer, Metal in the Tissues, Pacemakers, Haemophilia, Diabetes and Anti-Coagulants. There is more to come, but this combination covers the majority of my routine contraindication queries.
Updated Download Materials
Apologies to those of you who downloaded the Feb 2013 Therapeutic Ultrasound handout and struggled with the Dose Chart (last page). There was a formatting error which I had missed. This has now been corrected (April 2013 version now available). There is also an updated Ultrasound Dose Calculations pdf file and an update to the Interferential file. All of these files are MORE UP TO DATE than the web pages - which I will update when the NEW WEB SITE goes live. All the new pdf files can be downloaded HERE
