Applicators Shortwave diathermy treatments can be applied using either the inductive field or the capacitive field method. Inductive Field Method A coil housed in a drum is placed over the body part where its magnetic field produces high frequency currents for effective deep heating of tissue and muscle with low impedance. Capacitive Field Method The body part is treated within the electromagnetic field of two plate electrodes, which warms superficial and high density tissues such as skin, tendon, ligament, joint capsule and bone more effectively. Capacitive electrodes require optional left...
