The Super Inductive System using healing effects of the high-intensity electromagnetic field, represents a perfect treatment of the painful conditions of the neuromuscular and joint-skeletal system. Ingenious applicator construction allows for therapy delivering without need of direct skin contact and with patient‘s and therapist‘s comfort in mind.
The therapy is based on the interaction between the high-intensity electromagnetic field and human body.
Once the electromagnetic field is generated by a coil placed in the applicator, neuromuscular tissue is depolarized and muscle contraction occurs. With the Super Inductive System you can effectively treat various disorders of neuromuscular and joint-skeletal system.
The Super Inductive System pain management is based on three different neurophysiological pain control theories. Each of them varies in frequency spectrum. Wide range of frequencies assures that the Super Inductive System can be indicated in all stages of painful conditions.
Endorphins are endogenous opioids in humans, which are naturally released in response to pain. The secretion of analgesic opioids is achieved by stimulating nerve endings with the SIS using frequencies in the range between 2–10 Hz. The most common indications are chronic conditions (i.e. chronic back pain or chronic joint pain).
Pain is transferred to the brain interpretation center through nerve fibers and the ‘spinal gate’. Thin diameter nerve fibers open the spinal gate and carry pain to the brain. Large diameter nerve fibers close the spinal gate and pain is not transferred to the brain. When stimulating treated area with SIS using frequencies in the range between 60–100 Hz, large diameter nerve fibers are affected. The most common indications are acute and subacute conditions (i.e. acute condition after distortion).
Pain is sent as coded information through peripheral nervous system to the brain interpretation center, where it is decoded and interpreted. When stimulating a painful spot with SIS using high frequencies in the range between 120–140 Hz, the coded information is not interpreted as pain. The most common indications are subacute painful conditions (i.e. rheumatoid arthritis).
Joint mobilization is a gentle repetitive movement to relieve blocked joint, usually over the spine.
Muscle strengthening can be performed to maintain muscles as well as to prevent any further deterioration of the muscle tissue.
Healing process of the bone usually takes about 6 weeks. During this period, it is desirable to boost the blood circulation, which will enhance the formation of the new bone.
To decrease spasticity effectively, combination of relaxation and consequent stimulation of affected muscle groups is desirable.
A great benefit of the Super Inductive System is that the therapy can be delivered without the need of direct skin contact.
For your complete comfort, the therapy can be applied even over clothing.
Watch how the therapy is done
The Super Inductive System is suitable for patients suffering from neuromuscular and joint-skeletal disorders. Consult your condition with your physiotherapist and learn more about the indications.
No, the therapy does not hurt. According to the treated area and therapy parameters, the patient experiences muscle contractions or may feel slight tingling. Muscle contractions occur during strengthening or joint mobilization, whereas slight tingling is perceived during pain management therapy.
Number of sessions depends on your condition. Although the Super Inductive System therapy brings immediate relief, to maintain long-term results it is recommended to attend up to 5 therapies in acute conditions and up to 10 therapies in chronic condition.
The therapy is harmless and without side-effects. To ensure maximum comfort, the intensity of stimulation can be fully adjusted during the therapy according to patient’s subjective perception. The Super Inductive System is equipped with Therapy Targeting Mode, which ensures precise delivery of the therapy to the affected area.

Joint mobilization is achieved through repetitive contractions of the muscles surrounding the joint capsule. This repetitive contraction leads to joint play restoration and substitutes manual joint mobilization.
Interaction of the electromagnetic field with neuromuscular tissue, results in nerve depolarization and muscle contractions. Based on the selected stimulation frequency, muscle facilitation or strengthening can be achieved.
The high-intensity electromagnetic field enhances blood circulation in the affected area and supports formation of the vascular and cartilage callus. Consequently, progressive cartilage mineralization and bone remodeling are initiated.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition of the wrist caused by compression and swelling of the median nerve. Nerve compression may result in a loss of grip strength and functional deficit, which is usually accompanied by pain and tingling. Patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome treated with the Super Inductive System, will experience the immediate pain relief and recover their muscle strength.
Nerve regeneration is the ability of the nerve to repair after an injury. Injuries differ from simple compression to total nerve interruption, which requires comprehensive therapy, including prevention of muscle weakness, pain reduction and local blood enhancement. Intense stimulation of the impaired neural tissue by the Super Inductive System, boosts blood flow and relieves the pain in the affected area. As the nerve is well nourished, proper muscle function can be observed.
Breathing issues are a result of inherited or acquired respiratory disease. Patients usually describe discomfort during breathing due to muscle discoordination and insufficiency, which can be diagnosed by spirometry. In such condition, improvement of muscle activation and coordination of the breathing pattern are desirable. Stimulation of the breathing muscles with the Super Inductive System improves their strength and guides the patient to breathe more efficiently.
Cartilage discs, situated in between each vertebrae of the spine, are exposed do every-day physical effort. Mechanical damage of the discs, which can slip out to spinal pathway and compress the nerve roots, may occur. This leads to back pain connected with numbness and muscle weakness. Due to frequency-specific pain management, the Super Inductive System can be indicated in all stages of painful condition to suppress the pain according to different pain control theories.
Patellar tendinopathy stands for painful condition of the knee and patella, which is common among athletes performing jumping sports. Tendinopathy results from an increased demand on the knee extensors and their tendons. To treat tendinopathy effectively, it is important to restore the muscle balance and relieve the pain. The Super Inductive System targets the demands of the therapy. Overloaded muscles are relaxed, whereas pain in the muscle tendons is suppressed.
Impingement syndrome is a painful condition, which occurs in the shoulder or hip joint. Upon movement, rotator cuff tendons or hip flexor tendons are irritated and inflamed as they pass through the subacromial or acetabular space. Patients report pain, muscle weakness and loss of active movement. Due to stimulation with the Super Inductive System in the affected area, patients experience significant pain reduction and their range of motion is increased.
Spasticity is defined as an abnormal increase of muscle tonus, which usually occurs in central motor impairment such as traumatic brain or spinal cord injury. Increased muscle tonus is accompanied by muscle weakness, which disables patient to move freely. By relaxing spastic muscles and consequently stimulating weakened muscles with the Super Inductive System, a muscle balance and decrease of spasticity in the affected muscle group are achieved.
Spinal mobilization is a gentle passive movement of a spinal segment performed by a physical therapist to increase the range of motion and flexibility of the spine. The Super Inductive System can be applied over the patient's spine and by repetitive contractions of the muscles surrounding the joint capsule of the spine, mimics the manual joint mobilization. This repetitive contraction leads to restoration of spine flexibility and mobility.
Muscle atrophy, a loss of muscle mass, occurs in bedridden patients due to restriction of active movement or in neurogenic diseases. Aim of the therapy is to maintain and potentiate muscle capacities and strength. The Super Inductive System selectively targets neuromuscular tissue, in which muscle contractions occur. Therefore it can be used to prevent atrophy and maintain muscle strength from the very beginning of the rehabilitation process.
A bone fracture is a medical condition, in which damage of the bone continuity occurs. It takes around 6 weeks to heal the damaged bone. The healing process requires increased blood supply, which can be achieved through early application of the high-intensity electromagnetic field. The Super Inductive System enhances blood circulation in the affected area and supports cartilage mineralization and bone remodeling.
