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.

IFOMPT Reference List

I have uploaded the full reference list for the presentation at IFOMPT in Glasgow {Expanding our Understanding of the Inflammatory Process and its role in Pain and Tissue Healing] to the DOWNLOAD page, but in case you do not want to go that far into the site, here is a quick LINK 

The Website

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.

TWITTER Service: 

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

Update PUBLICATIONS

Which include WCPT posters/papers (available on WCPT page HERE) and new 'Tim' papers on Ultrasound, General issues in Evidence Based Electro and Review on Radio Frequency including continuous and pulsed shortwave. Detalis on PUBLICATIONS page. I have also added LINKS to as many of the publications as I can for those who want to follow them.

NEW paper on RadioFrequency (Chronic Conditions - Review Part II) now out in Physical Therapy Reviews - second in the series (as the title suggests!) is now out - see PUBLICATIONS page

 

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. FAQ Page
