ActiPatch resolves the swelling and inflammation associated
with heel pain.
Allows patients to return to their life style
activities sooner and in comfort.
Each ActiPatch delivers a minimum of 720 hours of effective therapy.
That's up to 90 overnight treatments.
We use the same Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field (PEMF) technology used in bone
You already know PEMF works and you know it's safe.
ActiPatch is an affordable, wearable, patch that delivers a
safe low-power Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) to injured tissue.
ActiPatch works locally and directly on the site of injury. The patient
feels no pain or sensation from ActiPatch while it's working.
Over the last 20 years, the medical use of electromagnetic
therapy has established an excellent record of safety and has been used by a
variety of doctors on thousands of patients for the safe treatment of bone
and soft tissue conditions ActiPatch received a 510k FDA clearance for use
in the reduction of edema (swelling) following blepharoplasty - a facial
plastic surgical procedure.
When soft tissue is damaged the cells leak fluid and cellular
components break down while the cellular debris causes inflammation,
swelling and pain. ActiPatch stabilizes the leaking cell membrane by, in
effect, recharging the membrane. The pulsed energy delivered by ActiPatch
drives out the edematous fluid along with by-products of the damaged tissue.
- ActiPatch causes a reduction in the swelling ('edema')
and inflammation that occurs after tissue injury ' a true and beneficial
acceleration in the inflammatory process which occurs in virtually all
wounds and tissue injuries, and, which is, an integral component of normal
- ActiPatch facilitates improved micro-vascular perfusion
of damaged tissue. The result is faster clearing of edematous fluid, and
more rapid elimination of noxious agents [nitrous oxide, histamine, etc.]
that are released into the surrounding tissue following an injury.
- These mechanisms provide an environment in which
cell-to-cell communication is re-established in the area of the injured
tissue This provides a well demonstrated and significant overall
improvement in the restorative and recovery process following injury.
- As a result of the above changes, a decrease in the
pain associated with soft tissue injury often occurs.
The body reacts to injury to prevent infection. The
visible signs are redness, heat, and swelling of the soft tissue. This
condition inhibits the tissue from a rapid recovery.
ActiPatch delivers PEMF to
re-establish cell to cell contact. Tissue rapidly passes through the
inflammatory process and begins the recovery process.
This bruise is healing less than 24 hours after injury. You can clearly
see where the ActiPatch was applied.
'I have been using ActiPatch for approximately one year
am impressed with the results. It reduces pain and edema
without medication. The amount of pain relief and
edema reduction is remarkable with ActiPatch. The ActiPatch unit is a safe,
low cost, small, portable and a narcotic-free device.'
'I have found that BioElectronics' new product ActiPatch
usually resolves pain associated with heel pain conditions such as plantar
fasciitis in as little as 2-3 days. The potential for ActiPatch in the
treatment of inflammatory conditions such as heel pain and acute sports
injuries is enormous. The PEMF technology is safe and has been used for
years, but until now it has not been available in a patch that a patient can
wear at home.'
