APS Therapy is a type of electrotherapy, using a micro-current of electricity. Micro-current therapies transmit an electrical current through the human body, using electrodes to make contact with the skin, at biological frequencies. In other words, the same type of electrical signal that our bodies use naturally.
APS stands for Action Potential Simulation.
Action potential = passage of electrical energy along cells. Simulation = ‘ a copy’.
The APS therapy wave form is an direct copy of an action potential, the body's own electrical signalling system, which is what makes it unique.
We are often asked if this is the same as TENS. The answer is no. To compare, a TENS machine uses a current of a thousandth of an amp, or 0.001, to creat a tingle that distracts from pain. APS Therapy uses a current of 0.00 0001, or a millionth of an amp., to get the cells firing more effectively, to address the underlying cause of pain, amongst other things.
'The change in electrical potential associated with the passage of an impulse along the membrane of a muscle cell or nerve cell.'
The wave of electricity passing along cells, and referred to as a 'nerve signal' 'nerve firing' or 'cells firing' is an Action Potential.
This wave is used to transmit information, and to kick start almost all processes within the cells.
Pain Levels Are Considerably Reduced
" I have had my machine since 2008 and have found it of immense benefit before and after major spinal surgery. I now manage without a walking stick, and pain levels are considerably reduced." -Sue Kemp
