ActiPatch is FDA approved for the treatment of swelling (edema) following blepharoplasty.
Product Description & Benefits:
Actipatch RecoveryRx Breast Augmentation/Reduction Swelling, Bruising & Scar Recovery Kit helps restore cellular action to accelerate healing. Recommended by numerous doctors, the Actipatch RecoveryRx Breast Surgery Recovery Kit is the most cutting-edge solution for reducing post-operative bruising, swelling, pain, and redness, and minimizing scar appearance. Approved by the FDA and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, this drug-free, painless electromagnetic device delivers a pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy to accelerate healing of soft tissue injuries. The reduction of pain and swelling allows you to return to normal activities much sooner and facilitates your recovery. Actipatch RecoveryRx also helps restore cellular action to accelerate healing. This therapy eliminates major barriers for patients considering major surgery by reducing the recovery time and cost of therapy. The rapid restoration of normal activity prevents atrophy, collateral injury, and days lost from work. The kit comes with two 12cm (4.7 inch) RecoveryRx loops.
Electromagnetic Energy Therapy Benefits:
Reduces inflammation and bruising, and restores cellular action to accelerate healing and reduce pain.
Rapid restoration of normal activity prevents atrophy, collateral injury, and days lost from work.
Flexible and comfortable
No know side-effects.
Dramatically reduces cost of therapy.
Excellent patient compliance.
FDA approved for use in reducing the swelling following Mammaplasty.
Evaluated and approved by the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
The technology and dosage of the RecoveryRx device has been validated by the by the State University of New York, Bioelectromagnetics Research Laboratory.
How does Actipatch RecoveryRx Work:
When soft tissue is damaged, the cells separate to prevent the transmission of infection. 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 recharging it. The pulsed energy delivered by ActiPatch drives of the edematous fluid along with by products of the damaged tissue thereby reducing swelling. The mechanisms provide an environment in which cell-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 surgery. As a result of the above changes, a decrease in the pain associated with soft tissue injury often occurs.
This patented technology is based on clinically proven, widely accepted PEMF or commonly called: pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy. The clinical effectiveness of the product has been well established with testings performed at the Bioelectromagnetics Research Laboratory at the State University of New York that have shown that the ActiPatch Therapy provides an adequate dosage of electromagnetic energy for the treatment of soft tissue, and that its power at the skin level is equivalent to that of traditional high-power devices. The power level is six to nine orders of magnitude higher than that which is required to show a biological effect. It also demonstrated that the cumulative effect of continuous delivery provides a greater therapeutic benefit than sporadic treatments.
Instructions for Use:
1) Your surgeon will place RecoveryRx over each breast in the operating room to be worn continuously for 48 hours to reduce pain and swelling.
2) Do not bind or wrap an injured muscle. Early moving and stretching is key to recovery.
3) The night of surgery start range of motion arm exercises and take your prescribed medication.
4) Get back to your active lifestyle the next day!
Applicable Procedures: Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction.
