The ARPwave Device

The RX100 is the heart of ARPwave fitness, performance, and rehabilitation program.  Many of the ARPwave RX100’s characteristics are unavailable in any conventional therapeutic neuromuscular electrical stimulator.

The ARPwave RX100 uses direct current (DC) combined with a patented background waveform to produce tiny muscle contractions which increases active ranges of motion and permits eccentric (lengthening) contractions as well. The ARPwave RX100 is a class 2 medical device authorized by the FDA for the following uses:

ARPwave RX100
  • Muscle Reeducation: Eliminating compensation patterns.

  • Relaxation of muscle spasms: Reducing pain in the affected muscles.

  • Increased local blood circulation: Shown to speed up healing.

  • Prevention and retardation of disuse atrophy: Building muscle strength quickly.

  • Maintaining and increasing range of motion: Increasing the muscles’ ability to absorb force and prevent muscle-related injury.

 

The electrical stimulation device (the ARP) possesses specification characteristics that are not found in any conventional therapeutic neuromuscular electrical stimulator (interferential, micro-current, galvanic, Russian stim, iontophoresis).

ARP Wave uses direct current compounded with a high frequency double exponential, patented background waveform. This background wave is harmonious with the body and significantly reduces skin and fatty tissue impedance allowing much deeper penetration of the direct current without the side effects of skin burning.

Also, the unique waveform produces minimal inhibitory protective muscle contractions allowing active range of motion during therapy and training. This permits eccentric (lengthening) contractions to occur which are critical to treatment.

 

 

Technical Specifications:

  • Waveform: Compound, double exponential asymmetric with high levels of direct current.

  • Power: High power with NO surface burning or surface pain at 0 to 2.5 watts.

  • Main Pulse: 40 to 500 pulses per second.

  • Background Frequency: High-frequency carrier signal at 10,000 cycles per second. Polarity Direction of electron flow is reversible.

  • Depth of Penetration: Deepest soft tissue penetration resonates with the human system, causing the body’s natural resistance to drop out.

By reducing inhibitory protective muscle contractions, the protocols allow more voltage output to be delivered to the treated tissue. Once maximum voltage is delivered, unique methodologies in strength training are then used to accelerate recovery.
