Modalities, References, News & Presentations
Electrotherapy on the Web 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.
The website is sponsored by Indiba Activ, to whom grateful thanks are extended.
A new page has been provided with links to the current version of the Electrophysical Framework - a 'map' the links all electrophysical agents/modalities/interventions into a single integrated structure. The Framework page can be accessed HERE
This is an ongoing development and active interaction (opinion, discussion, comment) is encouraged at the Electrophysical Forum
Inflammation Presentation at IFOMPT 2016
There is a YouTube video of my recent presentation (IFOMPT, Glasgow, July 2016) which considers issues on Inflammation and Tissue Healing. I also proposed in that talk that there may be a 'common mode of action' for several - possibly all - therapies along the lines of cytokine and chemical mediator systems. It appears to be open access at : www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpMFI7UPwMo if you want to have a peek. The reference lists for that talk have been on the DOWNLOAD page for a while
It provides a place for discussion, exchange of ideas and a community of people who can assist with your questions relating to the use of electrophysical modalities
There is an panel of experts from around the world who have volunteered to assist in answering queries - so why not pay a visit and make the most of a resource which is free and open access??

The web site appears to be doing what it was supposed to. As of October 2015 I have had visits from users in 201 countries/territories with over 304,000 people accessing the site in the last year .
I have taken down the manufacturer / machine images from the slideshow (a) to try and speed up page loading and (b) some people thought that I was 'advertising' and receiving payment - NOT TRUE - so they are gone.
If you do find an error, a broken link or anything else along those lines, PLEASE do let me know and I will do my best to put it right. For those of you who have experienced difficulty in finding it, the MANUFACTURERS lists are found from the top menu under the LINKS tab.
The TWITTER feed now shows the most recent Tweets and it appears to be sufficiently popular to carry on with the service for the moment. I try to put uyp one Review and one new research paper each day - concentrating on Electro Physical Agents and Tissue Repair. Follow here: @ElectroTim
