Advanced Physical Therapy



"HIVAMAT® is a unique, patented treatment method. This advanced therapy gets its name from a description of what it does: (HI) Histological (VA) Variable (MA) Manual (T) Technique. When done with soft tissue mobilization by a clinician, HIVAMAT utilizes an intermittent electrostatic field to create what is known as Deep Oscillation. These electrostatic waves create a kneading effect deep within the damaged tissues, rapidly relaxing muscles, alleviating pain, and reducing swelling while restoring flexibility and blood supply to the affected area.Its special structure allows biologically effective oscillations in the treated tissue using electrostatic attraction and friction. In contrast to other therapies, these pleasant oscillations have a gentle and deep-acting effect on all tissue components (skin, connective tissue, muscles, blood and lymph vessels)."

The following physiological effects of HIVAMAT® are clinically proven:

Pre and post-operative therapy

With HIVAMAT® therapy, swelling, redness, and edema can be relieved pre- and post-operative considerably faster than with conventional therapies. Because it can be used at an extremely early stage, wound healing processes are stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation is inhibited and pain is significantly reduced over a sustained period. Scar quality is improved. Trauma c and neurological damage. For traumatic and neurological injuries and damage, HIVAMAT® has a significant edema-reducing effect, directly stimulates self-mobilization in areas relieved of pain, and enables an earlier return to active forms of therapy and activities of daily living. In brain stroke rehabilitation, it is used for gentle and effective lymphatic drainage.

Pain syndromes

For chronic pain conditions, such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, HIVAMAT® has a strong pain-relieving effect. This establishes the possibility to tackle impairments in daily life, fatigue, muscle stiffness, fears and depression:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Effective in resorbing edema
  • Promotes wound healing
  • Muscles are relaxed
  • Alleviation of pain is enhanced
  • Mobility is promoted
  • Highly effective in reducing pain

The HIVAMAT can be used to treat anyone with the need to reduce swelling, relieve soft tissue pain or recover faster from an injury. Including conditions such as:

  • Muscle tension, spasms, and cramps
  • Numbness, tingling, and other indications of pinched nerves
  • Whiplash and other trauma
  • Joint sprains, muscle strains, and sports injuries
  • Tennis elbow, tendonitis, and other repetitive movement issues
  • Arthritis, bursitis and other degenerative joint concerns
  • Hip pain, sciatica, and stiffness
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Migraine headache
  • Plantar fasciitis
