HCR 1002

HCR 1002 is a fundamental tool within the Human Tecar
MO: by acting on microcirculation, it maximizes the body’s capacity for recovery,
preserves and restores balance, and enhances performance.

Human Tecar HCR 1002 is an electromagnetic stimulator of microcirculation. It works by means of a medium-frequency radio signal that, placed in contact with biological tissue through two specific types of conductive electrodes – high and low-impedance – triggers metabolic activation of the tissue itself, stimulating blood flow/lymphatic circulation in more or less extensive body areas, depending on whether therapeutic goal is affecting the entire body, restricted body areas or segmental districts.

HCR 1002 is based on the principle of capacitance, well known in physics and applied to this type of electro-medical device for the first time here.

The electromagnetic signal (i.e. medium-frequency radio signal) does not propagate through space; rather, it is conveyed to tissue by direct contact, acting from the inside, without any energy loss. In biological terms, we may speak of the mobilization of electrical charges – called electrolytes – that are naturally present in the body. These can influence cellular metabolism, triggering the need for more oxygen and nutrients and therefore, an increase in blood flow to a given body district.

Power, precision and sensitivity of device enable practitioners to adjust energy intensity, even by minimal degrees, adapting a given therapeutic protocol to the precise requirements of the person being treated at all times. This translates into more focused and effective treatment of inflammatory conditions, both acute and chronic, and even swifter and more successful pain therapy.

Operating principle

The mobilization of electrolytes and their accumulation in the
desired body district occurs in three distinct stages:

Level 1

On a first level, there is biostimulationwith an increase in endocellular energy transformation, increased oxygen
requirement due to the action on tissue biochemistry, and an analgesic (painkilling) effect, thanks to impact on free nerve endings.

Operating principle

The mobilization of electrolytes and their accumulation in the
desired body district occurs in three distinct stages:

Level 2

On a second level, we have intracellular oxygenation, chemical microhyperemiain the capillary and precapillary districts, associated with degranulation of the specific receptors, an increase in speed of blood flow due to the ‘shunt effect,’ and finally endothermia due to the acceleration of metabolism in the
substratum.

Operating principle

The mobilization of electrolytes and their accumulation in the
desired body district occurs in three distinct stages:

Level 3

On a third level, we have mechanical vasodilation associated with an incrementin deep temperature, increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage.

Low-impedance electrodes

Particularly suited to selective, in-depth action; treatment with low-impedance electrodes is currently considered the treatment most effective on fibrous connective tissue and bone tissue, biophysically more resistant tissue (bones, cartilage, large tendons, aponeuroses).
Low-impedance or resistive electrodes are powered by the same radio frequency signal. The practitioner assesses which intensity level he had best apply, depending on the required endogenous response. This consists of concentrating circulation and increasing temperature in osteoarticular and tendinous tissue as well as in the presence of fibrotic tissue and scars, i.e. in areas with low levels of electrolytes. Instrumental in resolving biological damage in all forms of chronic and acute pathology characterized by degeneration and fibrosis.

High-impedance electrodes

Particularly suited to treating soft tissue (muscular, adipose, vascular, lymphatic). High-impedance (capacitive) electrodes induce an endogenous response, reactivating blood flow in low-impedance soft tissue with high water content. In practice, hypotrophic muscletissue is revitalizedthanks to intense vascularization, which acts on edema, pain and inflammation; with all the benefits of better blood flow.

Capacitive Electrodes

High-impedance (capacitive) electrodes, coated with a special insulating material, are made with a multi-layer coating technique (wafer technology), with one or more biocompatible materials, so as to reactivate deep circulation in deep tissue. HCR 1002 is equipped with a series of high-impedance electrodes in different shapes and sizes, which enable treatment of every possible body district.

Ergonomic Smart Use handpieces

In order to carry out high-precision treatment and achieve immediate and enduring results, the practitioner will often
need to change the type of electrodes (lymphodynamic or thermodynamic, flat or convex) and corresponding diameter several times during a single treatment session; particularly in case of inflammatory pathologies and pain therapy, where minimal variations in temperature can immediately affect results.In order to make it easier and faster to change electrodes, each of these has been made to fit special handpieces with Smart Use connections, which makes replacing electrodes extremely swift and easy.
Each electrode-bearing handpiecehas been ergonomically designed and made with special materials that make it light and easy to use.

Universal Electrolytic Emulsion

Treatment with HCR 1002 cannot do without the Universal Electrolytic Emulsion, a functional cosmetic product with high levels of conductivity that constitutes an indispensable factor +in reducing superficial tissue’s resistance and facilitating the internal mobilization of electrolytes, responsible for the consequent circulatory response.
It is a highly technological product that, correctly utilized, strongly affects response time to therapy:

  • Guarantees tissue’s thorough hydration
  • Reduces skin resistance
  • Optimizes electrode’s smooth movement over skin
  • Prevents therapeutic activity from focusing solely on tissue’s superficial layers
  • Makes treatment a very pleasant experience

Establishingtherapy

The practitioner identifies the problem and applies the most suitable therapy for the person being treated. He programs a customized, “made-to-measure” treatment – thanks to his professional experience, combined with the versatility of application of the HCR 1002 technology.

The human factor holds a crucial role in the Human Tecar world. Technology and professionals complement each other. Both the meticulous monitoring of devices and training those who will be using these devices are essential to the Human Tecar culture. It is the combination of these two aspects that ensures therapy’s success.

Stimulation levels

Stimulation thus acts on biological tissue’s metabolic balance in an extremely gradual, modulated manner, according to the particular pathology, the person undergoing treatment, and the stage of treatment itself.

Homogeneity of response in deep tissue

One of the major advantages to HCR 1002 is the homogeneity of response in deep tissue: this is because energy is exclusively conveyed by means of the attraction and repulsion processes of the electrical charges drawn by the active electrode from the various body districts, so it acts from within rather than without the body.

Flexibility of technology

Practitioners can utilize HCR in a very flexible manner, since its use is highly focused and precise, acting locally and prompting variations in temperature in a given body district and therefore, differences in temperature between that district and one close to it or adjacent to it.

Selective action

Thanks to high- and low-impedance electrodes, the HT specialist can focus treatment on a given type of tissue, modulating therapy protocol according to needs and maximizing precision and effectiveness.
