Please check out the following responses to your important questions about the HIVAMAT 200®.

What is the HIVAMAT 200®?

The HIVAMAT 200® gets its name from a description of what it does: (HI) Histological (VA) Variable (MA) Manual (T) Technique. In other words, this Deep Oscillation Therapy® piece of equipment is a revolutionary therapeutic device that can treat swelling… relieve soft tissue pain… and help an injury recover faster. The HIVAMAT 200® works with a wide variety of health-related problems — saving treatment time and practitioner energy — while delivering positive results on a daily basis.

How does the HIVAMAT 200® work?

The HIVAMAT 200® makes use of a unique and safe alternating electrostatic field to very quickly — but gently — pull up and down the tissues under the practitioner’s hands. The body parts that are powerfully affected include skin… muscle… blood vessels… and connective tissue. The low-frequency electrostatic field generated by this Deep Oscillation Therapy® device creates a soft pulsating influence that can treat swelling… relieve soft tissue pain… and help an injury recover faster.

How does the HIVAMAT 200® treat swelling? 

The HIVAMAT 200® can quickly and effectively treat swelling due to the rapid oscillations produced within the tissues contacted. These Deep Oscillation Therapy® pulsations enhance the movement of lymph through the lymphatic system, reducing lymphedema in the area being treated. When lymph is drained out of a congested tissue region quicker, it will then reduce swelling in that body part.

How does the HIVAMAT 200® relieve pain from muscles, joints, and more?

The HIVAMAT 200® can quickly and effectively relieve pain from muscle and connective tissue areas (such as joints) due to the fast and pronounced oscillations generated within the structures contacted. These Deep Oscillation Therapy® pulsations do three key actions: they help bring more blood to the region, providing an increase of oxygen and nutrients to minimize pain from a local decrease of oxygen (hypoxia); they help break up excess fibrous tissue (fibrosis), providing more pliability to minimize pain from restricted movement; they help mobilize tissue substances involved with the transmission of pain through the nervous system.

How does the HIVAMAT 200 improve injury recovery time?

The HIVAMAT 200® can decisively shorten the amount of injury recovery time due to the fast and pronounced oscillations produced within the tissues contacted. These Deep Oscillation Therapy® pulsations do two key actions: enhance the movement of lymph through the lymphatic system to reduce any swelling in the area due to inflammation; limit pro-inflammatory cell movement in the wound region to minimize inflammation and encourage more rapid tissue healing.

How does the HIVAMAT 200® minimize the appearance of cellulite?

The HIVAMAT 200® can effectively decrease the presence and extent of cellulite due to the fast and pronounced oscillations generated within the tissues contacted. These Deep Oscillation Therapy® pulsations do three key actions in the skin regions of cellulite: positively influence blood and lymph flow (optimizing nutritive availability and metabolite/toxin removal); break up fibrous formation and encourage greater elastic quality (minimizing the “orange peel” appearance); minimize any inflammatory tendency (reducing edema).

How does the HIVAMAT 200® decrease post-surgery scarring and adhesions?

The HIVAMAT 200® can decisively decrease the extent and excessive fibrous reactions from surgical trauma due to the fast and pronounced oscillations produced within the tissues contacted. These Deep Oscillation Therapy® pulsations enhance the movement of lymph away from the lesion site (minimizing the edema that tends to encourage undesirable scar tissue and adhesions) and break up or prevent fibrous formation (that can lead to excess scar tissue and adhesions).

Is the HIVAMAT 200® difficult to use?

The HIVAMAT 200® is easy to set up and use within a therapy setting. This Deep Oscillation Therapy® device involves a simple treatment approach using exam gloves (for hygiene), powder (to reduce skin friction), and a lead from the HIVAMAT 200® piece of equipment attached to the practitioner. The recipient lightly holds a small bar with a lead to the HIVAMAT 200®. With these connections in place, the HIVAMAT 200® is set to the desired frequency and the practitioner begins applying massage therapy to the recipient. The frequency range can be adjusted at any time as needed.
