Product Description
Fluidotherapy is the only name in dry heat therapy. Dry heat therapy relieves localized pain, increases localized blood circulation, increases range of motion and relieves minor pain and stiffness associated with nonrheumatoid arthritis. Fluidotherapy provides a massaging action of warmth, increased blood circulation and pain diminishing effects to help increase joint range of motion. Fluidotherapy is defined as a modality of dry heat that uses a suspended air stream with the properties of a liquid. It simultaneously performs the functions of applied heat, massage, sensory stimulation, levitation and pressure oscillations. This device works by transferring thermal energy to soft tissues by forced convection. Convection is defined as the process of heat transfer through the forced movements of heated air and Cellex (made of natural cellulose) particles in the chamber, which together are circulated around the extremity being treated. Another key effect of fluidotherapy is limb buoyancy which allows patients to freely perform a variety of resistive exercises with increased mobility and decreased pain. The fluidized Cellex particles act like a low viscosity fluid, allowing limbs to be suspended much like in a liquid state. Comes with 10 pound container of Cellex dry heat media designed for Chattanooga fluidotherapy units.
