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.

the NEW LOOK website

The updated and revamped web site appears to be doing what it was supposed to. As of June 2014 I have had visits from users in 148 countries/territories with over 31000 different people accessing the site in the last month and 120,000 new users 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 (for the moment at least)

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 will keep the service to recent research publications rather than letting you know what I had for breakfast etc!  Follow here: @ElectroTim

Canadian Contraindication Document Available:
The 2010 extensive document published in the Canadian Journal of Physiotherapy appears to be openly accessible HERE. It is considered on the CONTRAINDICATIONS pages

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

Updated Handouts / Downloads:
There are several (but not all I am afraid) of the download materials which have been updated in 2014 with updated reference lists and support material. These include : Key Concepts with Electro Physical Agents: Ultrasound Therapy : Ultrasound Dose Calculations : Pulsed Shortwave : NMES (Muscle Stimulation): Shockwave : Russian Stimulation and Burst Mode Alternating Currents : Pulsed and Static Magnetic Field Therapy : Iontophoresis. All freely available as pdf files from the DOWNLOAD page. I appreciate that some of the others are in need of an update - rest assured, they are on my list.
