iHeal Faster Now With HoMedics iHeal

HoMedics iheal, a clinically proven medical device1, doesn’t just mask the pain like a topical analgesic or other pain management products would - it actively reduces healing time of soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis2a, carpal tunnel syndrome2b, inflammation around arthritic joints2c, sports sprains,2d, repetitive strain injury2e and tennis/golfer's elbow2f

HoMedics iheal is the world’s smallest, most effective and versatile PEMF (pulsed electro-magnetic field) therapy unit, speeding up the body’s natural healing process of most soft tissue disorders by up to 30%1.
 
HomedicsIt produces a steady stream of PEMF waves to the targeted area. This sustained therapy has two effects on the body’s natural healing: blood capillaries within the damaged tissue enlarge, bringing more blood to the treated area and the cell metabolic rate speeds up, increasing natural cell repair.
        
PEMF waves are completely painless and as a result allow the patient to get on with their everyday life without disruption.

The primary use of HoMedics iheal is to speed recovery of soft tissue injuries, and can also be used for swelling, bruising, poor circulation, leg cramps, aching muscles and restless leg syndrome.  

Sammy Margo, MSC MCSP HPC MMACP AACP Chartered Physiotherapist says, “Physios have been using this well proven technology for years which helps optimise recovery from soft tissue injuries.  Now this effective form of electro-therapy can be delivered in a small, portable, easy to use way that you can put on yourself during the day or even while you sleep.”

HoMedics iheal is a non-invasive device that is easy to use.  Simply strap or stick it on to the painful area and turn on, leaving it to work while you concentrate on other things.  The device can be held in place by an adjustable strap or the hypo-allergenic sticky patches that can be fixed directly on to the skin.  The iheal is incredibly lightweight and small, measuring only 38mm long, so you can wear it for up to 10 hours per day without noticing - it can even be used whilst sleeping!

HoMedics iheal is £49.99 available from selected larger Boots stores and independent pharmacies nationwide now.  For further information, visit www.homedics.co.uk.
