AcuScen

AcuScen is an Adaptive Compact Universal Self-Correcting Electro Neuro Stimulator *.

AcuScen device is not a SCENAR (or S.C.E.N.A.R.), but it has included all privileges of any previous insisted technologies applied for electrical pulse therapy. It generates bipolar electrical pulses, which resembles the natural pulses of the neural cells.
The operator can modify the amplitude, frequencies, and form of the pulse.
During treatment, as a result of interaction between patient’s skin and the AcuScen device, some aspects of subsequent pulses can be changed automatically, so that a form of biofeedback takes place during treatment. When the device is in SCAN mode (AcuScen-Pro) it detects these changes and displays them on the screen.

Electro-Pulse Therapy by AcuScen device:
A variety of normal biological responses and adaptation mechanisms are involved in the therapeutic processes during AcuScen therapy.

Application of AcuScen device can produce anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, anti-allergic, pain-relieving and other effects; and also it can stimulate various aspects of immune and endocrine system functioning, as well as normalizing microcirculation, and metabolism. It has important effects on the neuropeptides production.

AcuScen can be applied within conceptual framework either of modern classic medicine or traditional Oriental medicine. Both approaches have proved highly effective in the treatment of a wide variety of diseases, including pathologies of digestive, respiratory, cardio-vascular and nervous systems. It has been successfully applied in podiatry, dermatology, psychiatry and other fields (see Clinical trials).

Example of the therapy by AcuScen device is presented below:
This patient was suffering from varicose veins. Monitoring the skin temperature has been done with the Infrared imagine system. The total time between the 1st and 3rd picture is 30 minutes only. At the hottest points (red area) temperature has changed from 34.3 till 29.8 oC. After one session of treatment pain and heaviness in the leg has been abated.

The adjustable characteristics of the AcuScen output are:
Frequency: The single pulses are delivered in blocks, and therefore their frequency is a product of the frequency of the blocks and the number of pulses within each block. On the AcuScen “Frequency” denotes the number of blocks (n) per one second [f = 1/n] and can be adjusted from 10 to 383 Hz.

Depth is used to denote the number of separate pulses per one block from 1 to 8.
The actual frequency of separate pulses therefore can be found by multiplying Frequency (i.e. of the blocks) by Depth. For example, if the frequency of the blocks is 120 Hz and Depth is 5, the pulse frequency is 600 Hz.

Damping: By this option AcuScen device reduces the second and subsequent pulses amplitude to avoid painful feelings in case of high sensitivity to electrical pulses.

Modulation refers to the alternation of impulse blocks and pauses: the longer the period of pause, the less electrical power is applied within a given time.

The followings modes of operation are available in AcuScen devices:
MANUAL mode enables operator to adjust energy, frequency, depth and other characteristics of the pulse. Usually this mode is effective when it is necessary to apply movable technique of treatment. 

AUTO mode: Practitioner needs to adjust parameter of Energy only. During treatment AcuScen device changes pulse characteristics in accordance with the body response and informs when treatment is already done. This mode is usually applied by nonprofessional user or in case of local pain.

Double Variable (DVar) mode: This operation mode provides variation of the block frequencies from the 10 till 120 Hz and Depth from 1 till 8. As a result separate pulse frequencies are changing continuously from 10 till 960 Hz. This mode is very effective to act on deeply located problem or acupoints.

SCAN mode is applied to assess electrical parameters of the skin and to define the most effective area for the treatment. By this mode one may monitor therapeutic process on the screen.

Myo-Stim mode: In this operation mode device generates electrical pulses for classic myo-stimulation. So, this mode can be applied for treatment of different muscle diseases. Also it can be effective for weight reduction and cellulite treatment.

AcuScen device is capable to hold in memory several programs, which have been set by practitioner, then he can load or change these settings.
AcuScen has an option to test battery status. Device informs that it cannot provide adjusted parameters because of low battery or limitation of the power supply unit.

There are 2 models of AcuScen device only: AcuScen Pro Plus and AcuScen Premium.
AcuScen Pro Plus (black case) has been designed as a device for professional application.
It has five modes: MANUAL, AUTO, DVAR, SCAN and MYO-STIM:
AcuScen Premium (white case) has been designed for semiprofessional application. It has three modes: MANUAL, AUTO and DVAR. The previous name of AcuScen Premium device was AcuScen [home use].

Additional external probes (electrodes) can by applied with AcuScen device (see Accessories).

AcuScen device has been registered at Health Canada as a Biofeedback TENS for symptomatic pain relief and stimulation of acupuncture points.
