HealFast Therapy uses modulated radio frequency (RF) to induce a low frequency electric field in the tissue. Because HealFast Therapy is placed right on the skin, we are able to use a lower energy field than traditional machines. HealFast Therapy units emit a 27.1 MHz RF shortwave modulated at 1 KHz using 100 microsecond pulses. The RF waves create an induced electrical field in the damaged tissue in an eddy pattern which restores the normal cell metabolism. This innovative therapy packs the healing of PEMF into a low power wearable and affordable patch. There is no sensation from the treatment and it is safe.
The peak power density is 73 microwatts per square centimeter. The healing field is generated from a 3 volt battery. The 1 KHz modulation constitutes the physiologically active component of the signal, which exerts the electromechanical force on the cell population. Recent measurements indicate that less than 1% of the treatment energy is responsible for cell synchronization. The magnitude of the induced 1 KHz electric field in the tissue during HealFast Therapy treatment is on the order of 100 μV/cm at the skin level. The area of effective treatment of an HealFast device mirrors the size and shape of the area of the patch and antenna as shown in the diagrams with the particular products.
The HealFast battery life allows for multiple treatments up to a total of 720 hours in all models (except the Quick Relief Loop which has no ON/OFF switch lasts for 100 only hours of continuous use). Using the on/off tab for activation, a tiny red light comes on to confirm “on” status. The patch has to be positioned over the injured tissue. No skin prep is required, no actual skin contact is required, and in cases of wounds or incisions, the unit will work when placed over dressings or bandages. We recommend eighteen to twenty-four hours of continuous treatment, but the unit may be left on for a few days without risk. The unit should be periodically checked to make sure the light is still working. Six hours of HealFast treatment delivers the equivalent of 20 minutes of treatment by the high voltage, high frequency, expensive PEMF coil machines used in clinics. Another advantage of HealFast is that once the unit is positioned - the horse can be allowed to move freely in the stall or paddock. The patch may also be used during a long trailer haul.
