The SCENAR Professional is a practitioner level device capable of delivering the most effective treatment protocols. The SCENAR Pro uses interactive and intelligent energy-neuro-stimulation to reduce pain, reduce disability, and improve physiological functionality.
The SCENAR Professional creates an interactive dialogue with the body, finding, measuring and treating problem areas (asymmetries) through the skin. SCENAR (Self-Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator) was developed in Russia during the space race and today it is used widely as a medical modality with many applications.
The basic mode of operation of Scenar devices is to deliver a “dosage” of electrical stimulation impulses to the body via an in-built and/or remote electrode in direct contact with the skin surface. These impulses have been tailored to mimic the electrical discharges of the nervous system, in order to elicit the organism’s response with optimum efficiency and minimum disruption to cell function, depending upon the unique requirements of the presenting pain disease dynamics (or lack of the same). The action is aimed at both the “fast” pain blocking A-fibres and the “slow” pain producing and peptide generating C-fibres.
The signal stream, comprising waveform, signal strength (voltage and current) and frequency, can be varied in a number of ways, either by preselection by the operator or automatically by the control circuitry of the device. The “dosage” can be delivered automatically or overridden at the discretion of the operator, with guidance from visual indicators on numeri LED display.
The basic signal component is a bipolar pulse, consisting of a negative square-wave followed by a positive saw-tooth, starting and finishing at zero and lasting for a few microseconds. A number of these pulses may be packaged into a discrete burst (intensity) which itself may be repeated at a fixed default frequency. The individual pulses in these bursts (intensity more than 1) can themselves be spaced out (Z=10/close together, to 80/wide apart) to give a concentrated (deep) or diffuse (shallow) penetration, depending on local body density or depth of pain location.
How It Works:
The SCENAR device works through your skin (transdermal). It uses computer-modulated, electrical impulses to stimulate your brain (electroneuro-stimulator). The brain responds with it’s own signal which is picked up by the SCENAR device.
The SCENAR device then interprets the brain’s response and modifies its next impulse back to the brain to work at restoring balance to the body (This is called active reflex biofeedback) The brain, in turn, sends a modified response (and so on) until equilibrium is achieved (homeostasis).
During this ‘conversation’, of constantly varying electrical frequencies and waveforms, the brain also instructs the nervous system to generate Neuropeptides (the key biochemicals needed by your body to heal itself – the body’s own pharmacy). This is what the body was designed to do.
After an injury or onset of disease the communication system between the brain and the affected body part can ‘break down’ or ‘get used to’ the signal from that body part. The brain begins to accept the abnormal signal as “Normal”. This is a reason why many conditions become chronic and unresponsive to treatment. SCENAR breaks the body out of this habit and restores correct communication resulting in effective and more complete healing.
The electrical pulses from the SCENAR device have been specifically designed to contain numerous random features to prevent your body from ‘adapting’ to the stimulation and to help the body continue the healing process to its completion.
Because of its unique, computer controlled biofeedback capabilities and ability to stimulate Neuropeptide generation, the SCENAR achieves excellent healing results.
SCENAR is very different from other electrotherapy instruments such as TENS or Electroacupuncture. Tens units are mainly used to provide pain relief. Electroacupuncture instruments have a broader range of application, but they lack any bio-feedback capability. Only the SCENAR combines energy measuring functions along with real-time feedback and constant adjustment to deliver just the correct type and amount of energy to the body.
SCENAR produces both;
- Local effects by stimulating the skin, blood and muscle vessels
- General influence by influencing nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
Overall, SCENAR is an effective, non-invasive medical technology, which works by stimulating the body’s inherent self-healing mechanisms, with no undesirable side effects.
Scientific Definition of SCENAR
SCENAR is an acronym for Self Controlled Energo-neuro Adaptive Regulator.
SC – Self-Controlled The SCENAR device establishes a biofeedback link with the body when in use, constantly changing the properties of the applied electric impulses, in response to the measured reaction from the body.
EN – Energo-Neuro The effect of SCENAR is based on electric impulses of a specific shape; patterned after the natural nerve impulses of the human body.
AR – Adaptive Regulator The SCENAR device not only provides direct therapeutic effect, but also activates the natural defenses of the body.
