Oscillation Therapy



Deep Oscillation ® is a patented electromechanical therapeutic procedure using resonant vibration of the tissue with Deep Oscillation ® equipment from Physiomed, Germany.  A special design makes it possible, using electrostatic attraction and friction, “to produce mechanical vibrations in treated tissues of the body, not only at the skin on the surface but also in deeper tissues” (Brenke and Siems 1996)

The frequency can be varied in the range from 5 – 250 Hz.  The treatment applicator/therapists vinyl gloved hands and the patient are connected to the equipment (voltage source).  A vinyl film between the applicator, and/or vinyl gloves and the patient functions as a dielectric.  This results in a weakly conducting capacitative layer between the contact surfaces.  In action, pulsed electrostatic attractions draw the tissue to the applicator/gloved hand and release it at the rhythm of the chosen frequency.  The therapist sets the pressure gradient, speed and direction of the movements.

For the treatment, the patient holds a titanium neutral element loosely between the fingers or toes.  The pleasant therapy effect of Deep Oscillation ® is created beneath the hand applicator, which is moved in a circular motion above the tissue.
