MicroDoctor® therapy unit has been
available in the UK since July 2001 and is manufactured and marketed by
Microcurrent Devices Ltd. owners of the
MicroDoctor® registered Trade Mark.
MicroDoctor® therapy unit is based on the
success of the Harley Physio 3000 manufactured for the professional medical
industry. In 1998 Mr. Kevin Lidlow BSc. MCSP SRP Chartered Physiotherapist to the
British Olympic Team used it extensively to treat many of the British Athletes
including former world javelin champion Steve Backley.
After extensive research and development and more importantly listening to our
clients a decision was made to manufacture an affordable hand-held micro-current
unit for everyday use both by professional athletes and consumers, to treat not
only tendon and ligament problems but to also include arthritic and back pain.
MicroDoctor® micro-current technology is
not a pain relief unit similar to TENS, which merely blocks the pathway of pain
and becomes less effective over time.
MicroDoctor® acts positively to regenerate
An incredible fact is that the
MicroDoctor® therapy unit
in association with a formal rehabilitation
has also been used to treat many world-class
racehorses with tendon injuries, allowing the horses to get back to racing from
eighteen months to six months.
Microcurrent Devices Ltd.
therapy unit has Medical Directive Device (MDD Notified Body
0120) for use throughout Europe as a medical device whose scientific claims have
been independently authenticated.
