The Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment  is happy to announce a new partnership program with MedFaxx, Inc.   MedFaxx is one of the oldest electrotherapy companies in the U.S.   Specializing in pain management using electrotherapy devices such as tens units, and the new combination tens and interferential therapy unit, - video on Infrex Plus.    MedFaxx has specialized in helping patients in chronic pain since 1977 and continues to do so.

      For every tens unit, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator, sold MedFaxx will contribute $50 to the GJCAE.  For every Infrex Plus combination tens and interferential unit sold MedFaxx will donate $100 the the GJCAE.   The donation does not apply to Medicare/Medicaid patients.

    The Board of MedFaxx is happy to be part of the GJCAE efforts to raise levels of self confidence and self esteem in youth with arts programming.

Lowering Skin Resistance For Effective Interferential Treatment Print E-mail



     One of the main benefits of interferential is that the stimulus itself overcomes the resistance of the skin so the subcutaneous tissues can be reached.  There are methods one can use to decrease the resistance and thus increase the efficacy of the treatment.
Prior to treatment one may.... wash the treatment area in hot water.  The heated water will produce a faster blood flow to the area as the blood is trying to move the heat away and have the treatment area come into homeostasis with the surronding tissues.  This increased blood flow now provides blood closer to the skin surface and blood itself is a conductor of electricity.  This increase will allow greater ability to stimulate the nerves in the area.  Also the use of water on the skin is very good as the skin when dry is not conductive but once the area is wet then it allows less resistance and greater conductance on the surface.  The water will permeate into the uneven skin surface area, eliminating air ( resistor ), and allow for a more even conductive area and greater distribution in the affected area.

    The combination of hot water providing conducatance and the advance of blood into the subcutaneous tissues will enhance the overall effect of interferential treatment for the patient.
