The purpose of the Niagara devices
The Circulation Stimulation Therapy Pad (CSTP) and the Niagara Hand Unit type HU75 are used for Cyclo-Therapy (cyclodial vibration therapy). The CSTP pad has been designed for people with lower leg circulation problems due to chronic illness or disability such as diabetes, vascular conditions and high blood pressure.
Clinical studies have shown that Cyclo-Therapy increases circulation, reduce pain and assist muscle relaxation.
As a result the CSTP pad can:
Improve blood circulation,
Improve local and general blood flow for a better feeding of the muscles of the body and all organs to eliminate waste materials,
Assist muscle relaxation,
Improve the mobility and flexibility by increasing the production of synovial liquid in the joints,
Soothe most rheumatic pains
Improve lymphatic drainage to eliminate the tissue fluid,
Regenerate the tissue, blood and lymph drains for a better convalescence,
Secrete mucus in the lungs,
Decrease blood pressure by hypertension,
Produce the ability to rest and relax easily and naturally,
Ease simple nervous tension.
We should emphasise that Cyclo-Therapy is not a cure for the cause of these conditions but it can do much to help alleviate the symptoms associated with them. It is designed to complement the range of current therapies available. Its use can always be discussed with a health care professional if you feel necessary. You should not discontinue any current therapies without seeking professional advice.
The Cyclo Therapy should not used in the following circumstances if you have any of the following conditions:
Active Deep Vein Thrombosis,
Severe active wound infection and not receiving antibiotic therapy,
Skin in an inflamed state (red and hot),
Severe tissue necrose,
Unstable bone structures,
Over an area of a recent joint replacement.
WHAT IS CYCLO-THERAPY OR CYCLOÏDAL VIBRATION THERAPY (CVT)
Cyclo-Therapy is a Cycloidal Vibration Massage therapy. The unique eccentric motor produces an elliptical movement rather like a gyroscope. This ultimately creates cyclodial vibration with a multi-directional, three way wave, moving North/South, East/West and in a circular direction all at the same time. Cycloidal Vibration is a mechanical form of oscillation vibration producing a three dimensional movement of varying magnitude longitudinal, vertical and transverse to the vibrating surface (fig.1 and 2).
It has a frequency range of between 5 Hz and 105 Hz and an amplitude range of between 0,02 mm and 1,40 mm.
This results in a gentle but deep - penetrating massage with a multitude of therapeutic benefits with no known harmful effects.
