What is Hako-Med Horizontal Therapy?
Hako-Med Horizontal Therapy (ProElec DT 2000) has been a breakthrough in electromedicine, combining all known forms of electromedical therapy, in addition to this new revolutionary therapy. Hako-Med is clinically proven and the only patented therapy that allows the simultaneous creation of biochemical and bioelectric effects in the same tissue. It is the most sophisticated form of electrotherapy available.
A German company engineered and manufactured this state of the art, computerized technology to create a unique electrotherapy treatment concept called Horizontal Therapy. The field of electromedicine has evolved over the years and provided us with electrical muscle stimulation, TENS therapy, microcurrent, interfential therapy, and other forms. Each of these methods of electrotherapy has a particular role in treating a variety of conditions, but none of them approach the therapeutic effects which are combined in the PRO ElecDT 2000 with Horizontal Therapy.
Communication between cells takes place in two ways: bioelectrically and biochemically. Whether the cells are in bone, muscle, ligament or nerve tissue, communication occurs via electrical currents and chemical messengers. When cellular communication is impaired, pain and disease occur, so that the normal functional state is lost. This causes a further breakdown in cellular communication.
In the past, either the bioelectrical or the biochemical communication could be enhanced with electrotherapy at one time, but not both at once. With the Hako-Med, both bioelectrical and biochemical components can be treated all in one treatment session. By holding the bioelectric intensity constant while changing the frequency, Horizontal Therapy can have a broad spectrum physiologic effect. The PRO ElecDT 2000 preset programs are designed to do this automatically.
What Types of Conditions Are Treated with Horizontal Therapy?
The Hako-Med had been shown to be clinically effective for the following conditions:
• Back Pain
• Neck Pain
• Knee Pain
• Shoulder Pain
• Sciatic Pain
• Hand and Wrist Pain
• Foot Pain
• Peripheral Neuropathy
• Nerve Stimulation
• Relax Muscle Spasms
• Improving Range of Motion
Is Horizontal Therapy Safe?
It should be noted that the bioelectrical currents that are used in the PRO ElecDT 2000 are entirely safe. They have been rigorously tested and have surpassed all standards required for biomedical devices. The current is painless and, in many cases, barely felt. It should also be noted that there are some conditions for which this type of electrotherapy should not be utilized, including over areas of infection, blood clots, local infections, near a pacemaker, and in those patients who have cancer or abnormal cardiac rhythms. The electrodes should also not be placed on the head.
