100% Drug-Free Pain Relief Technology.

An evidence-based approach.

The Physiokey delivers non-invasive, interactive neurostimulation via the patient’s skin with little discomfort to the patient. The most unique characteristic of Physiokey Therapy is that it can induce changes in the parameters of its impulse automatically and in accordance with the body’s response to the device. While conventional physiotherapeutic devices are passive, Physiokey involves active feedback. The design and highly variable waveform of the Physiokey allows the therapist to deliver patient-individualised and specific treatments using a new, fast, and simple treatment methodology. Physiokey treatment can be applied locally to the painful area, directly over the spine or over orthopaedic metal implants. The device is applied directly to the skin without the need for conductive gels.

Physiokey technology relies on the body’s mechanism of adaptation, ensuring homeostasis. Regulation of the body’s vital functions is achieved through close connection and interaction of the nervous and endocrine systems. The effects of these systems result in the release of biologically active chemical modulators, called neuromediators.

Examples of these neuromediators are:

  • amine: acetylcholine, noradrenalin, adrenalin, dopamine, serotonin epinephrine, norepinephrine, histamine
  • amino acids: glycine, glutamic, aspartic and gammaaminobutyric acid
  • purine nucleotides: adenosine, cytidine, guanosine, thymidine
  • neuropeptides: enkephallin, neuropeptide Y, cholecystokinin, substance P, neurotensin

During Physiokey application, it is the neuropeptides that are the most important chemical modulators. Neuropeptide-producing nerve fibres make up more than 70% of the body’s neural tracts and can therefore be stimulated from many areas of the skin. The main goal of Physiokey Therapy is to induce the secretion of a sufficient amount of neuropeptides to relieve pain and initiate a healing response.

Physiokey Therapy functions on two physiological principles:

  • the body has its own healing capabilities and
  • we can promote this ability to heal by stimulation of the areas of the brain responsible for regulation of the autonomic       nervous system and homeostasis.
