The use of honey for healing goes back thousands of years, to ancient Greece and Egypt. In recent years, a resurgence in the science and use of honey has driven research and clinical testing to understand the healing properties and effectiveness of medical-grade honey in wound healing. Most specifically, the Leptospermum species or Manuka plant has shown to produce a unique honey optimal for wound healing. As a result, clinicians worldwide are championing the use of medical-grade honey across the spectrum of care.
MEDIHONEY® is the global leading line of medical-grade honey products for the management of wounds and burns. Derived from the Leptospermum species of plant in New Zealand, these unique dressings have properties which are beneficial throughout all phases of wound healing. MEDIHONEY® offers a full line of dressing solutions, providing versatility for varying wound and wound management needs.
What is MEDIHONEY® with Active Leptospermum Honey? MEDIHONEY® is an advanced wound care dressing that is supported by over 234 pieces of evidence demonstrating its clinical ability to promote the removal of necrotic tissue and advance a wound toward healing. In a randomized controlled trial, the mean healing time was significantly faster for wounds treated with MEDIHONEY® impregnated dressings when compared to conventional dressings.
TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased
Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.
IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.
Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.
Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
