Benefits for the patient
A wide range of treatments
Both in the field of ultrasound therapy and in the case of electrotherapy treatments, PhysioGo 300A offers a wide range of therapeutic options. The device allows electrotherapy procedures to be carried out using uni and bipolar currents such as: microcurrents, Kotz currents, TENS currents, currents dedicated to spastic paralysis therapy, diadynamic currents, impulse currents (rectangular pulses, triangular pulses, Trabert current), tonolysis, galvanic currents and others.
Moreover, PhysioGo 300A unit in the field of ultrasound therapy generates ultrasound waves with a frequency of 1 MHz, which allow the treatment of deeply located lesions, and 3.5 MHz allowing the treatment of diseases located shallow below the surface of the skin. The therapist using an ointment in the form of a gel with the active substance during ultrasound therapy has the option of performing phonophoresis.
Another advantage of the device is the ability to perform combination therapy in a special mode. It is a combination of therapeutic effect of electrotherapy and ultrasound. During the combination therapy, both therapies work on the patient’s body simultaneously. This method is very popular among therapists worldwide.
Safe physical therapy
The self-test procedure, which has been implemented in PhysioGo 300A – enables current monitoring of the device’s functional status each time it is turned on. In the case of ultrasound therapy, the device constantly monitors the contact quality of the ultrasound head with the patient’s body during the procedure. The user can be sure of reliable and effective dosing of the ultrasound waves on the area being treated. PhysioGo 300A also gives the opportunity to check the consumption degree of the electrodes used in electrotherapy treatments. Two independent electrotherapy treatment channels make the device to be recognized as two separate devices. In order to provide patients with maximum safety during therapy, in this case galvanic separation was used between the circuits, and thus between patients.
PhysioGo 300A also gives the possibility to conduct semi-automatic electrodiagnostics of the neuromuscular system – I/t curve. This is the starting point to begin targeted electrostimulation to improve the fitness of the muscle undergoing therapy. After completing the procedure the device will automatically display the rheobase and chronaxia values. However, the value of the accommodation factor together with the value of the accommodation quotient will be automatically presented in a graphic form to the therapist on a legible 7” display together with a comment and visual assessment presented on a specially created scale.

Built-in treatment programs
The device user can choose to work in manual or program mode. The manual mode gives the opportunity to determine the treatment parameters independently, and its use is recommended for advanced users. PhysioGo 300A is equipped with a database of 204 built-in treatment programs combined with an encyclopedia describing and illustrating the methodology of performing treatment procedures. Additionally, the user can create a handy list of favorite treatments based on available built-in programs. The modern approach to electrotherapy treatments has been emphasized by 38 built-in treatment sequences. It is a combination of several types of current in one treatment procedure. PhysioGo 300A memory allows to save 150 own treatment programs and 10 user-defined sequences. In contrast, three independent channels give the opportunity to perform electrotherapy and ultrasound treatments to one or several patients simultaneously, which significantly reduces the duration of therapy.
PhysioGo 300A allows to perform advanced physical treatment procedures outside the therapy centers. The device owes its mobility to small dimensions and a specially designed bag that allows safe transport for the unit along with its equipment. In addition, especially for physiotherapists conducting treatments in home healthcare environment, the ASTAR has created the PhysioGo 301A version equipped with a battery. It allows to work with the device up to 4 hours even when it is not possible to connect it to a power source.
