With the development of modern medicine, doctors and physicians have perfected many treatments to reduce and eliminate pain. One development, first researched in the 1970's and then published in leading medical journals in 1984 was the use of vibration therapy to treat joint pain.
The Kneease device generates high-frequency vibration to pass pulses through the skin to the affected area. Pain is transmitted as impulses in the large sensory fibres of the body and by applying a certain frequency to the area of pain, it interacts with the pain impulse transmissions, causing disruption. The pulses are effectively ‘scrambling’ the sensory impulses to the extent that they cannot be interpreted as pain signals by the brain. This helps to alleviate the pain from the condition.
Kneease comes in two variations, single frequency and a pulsed device with 10 pre-programmed settings for amplitude, frequency and pulse. The settings in the pulsed device are pre-set and controlled by a micro-controller inside the device. Repeated pressing of the activation button cycles through the pulse modes.
