GENESIS is one of the latest medical devices developed by WaivLength, exploiting the properties of ultrasound, phototherapy and PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) for speciﬁc therapeutic applications on the feet and legs. This device also has the added benefit of TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), which works in synergy with ultrasound to increase the effectiveness of both treatments. Similarly, the pulsing of electromagnetic fields synchronised with the infrared and blue light phototherapy complement one another, making the total effect greater than the sum of its parts.
The patient simply has to choose their program option from a range optimised for various pathologies, place their feet on the emitters, sit back and relax. During treatment, the patient or therapist can adjust the power of the TENS output to a comfortable level using the remote control supplied with the device. The intuitive interface is simple and easy to use so that both medical professionals and patients alike can easily apply therapies without the need to manually set the power, frequency and pulse rate for each treatment session.
We also offer a wide range of optional extras for the application of high frequency (HF) magnetotherapy to specific parts of the body, including vests, leg pads, arm pads, neck bands, face bands, shoulder and knee bands, and even mattress covers so that patients can have the benefits of HF pulsed magnetic fields applied to the entire body whilst they sleep. These accessories can be used in conjunction with the foot emitters on the main console, giving the option of applying therapies to two different parts of the body in the same treatment session, or even treating two patients at the same time.
This device is particularly useful for patients with chronic foot, ankle or lower leg conditions who would like to be able to continue their treatment at home. The simple interface makes it easy to apply treatments at the click of a button, without the need for prior medical training. This is massively beneficial for those with mobility issues or for whom it is difficult to make the daily trip to their local hospital or clinic to receive therapy. It can also help save on the costs of private treatments.
GENESIS can also be used by athletes to increase the speed of recovery after workouts and training sessions or by physiotherapists in combination with traditional therapies to optimise the benefit of their treatments, boost healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
The device features 23 programs for conditions affecting the feet, ankles and lower legs, with settings tailored to optimise the combination of ultrasound, magnetotherapy, phototherapy and TENS for each specific pathology. GENESIS features universal ultrasound and TENS programs and an adjustable universal magnetotherapy program, so trained professionals can adjust the output manually to treat an even greater range of pathologies than those listed in the manual.
