The different forms of physical energy: mechanical, electrical and magnetic are able to influence some functions of our organism.
Taking UV radiation as an example: they are not perceived by the human eye but are capable of stimulating the production of melanin in the skin.
Similarly, the mechanical forces acting on the musculoskeletal system during exercise, stimulate the neoformation of bone tissue, which is reduced during periods of inactivity or immobility.
It is therefore possible to use specific forms of physical energy for therapeutic purposes.
Not all signals are the same
A therapeutic signal is characterised by its intensity, frequency and waveform. The combination of these characteristics can result in:
An effective signal that leads to the patient’s condition being healed
An inert signal that wastes precious time
A harmful and potentially dangerous signal
If we go back to the example of light radiation, where different signals result in completely different biological effects:
Ultraviolet radiation - tanning: effective signal
Visible light - natural colours: inert signal
Ionising radiation - cell death: harmful signal
It thus becomes clear that even things we are not able to perceive can influence our healing. The physical stimulus, undetected by our sense organs, interacts with the membranes of the target cells (bone and joint) and modifies their behaviour: proliferation, secretion of growth factors, inhibition of the release of inflammation mediators.
How do I recognise an effective signal?
Only solid scientific research can ensure the effectiveness and safety of a biophysical signal.
Each IGEA Therapy follows a rigorous development pathway, just like a drug from pre-clinical phases in cell cultures and animal models to international clinical trials (learn more in the Medical Area).
This long process allows us to identify the best combinations of different signal characteristics to provide you with a safe and effective therapy.
No device on the market is able to equal patented IGEA therapies.
