The AVACEN 100 incorporates heat therapy and negative pressure to increase local circulation and infuse heat into a unique vascular network, located in the palm of the hand. Raising the blood temperature at this “single point treatment” (the palm) increases blood temperature throughout the body naturally via the circulatory system. This can benefit the entire body.
Sessions are 20 minutes. Simply place your hand into the AVACEN 100 for a comfortable treatment session. Easy to understand instructions are presented on the device Display Screen. The AVACEN 100 works with the body’s natural adaptations. It’s easy to use and noninvasive.
The AVACEN 100 uses the AVACEN Treatment Method (ATM) – a noninvasive pain management technology platform for people at normal body temperature. This technology platform uses a microprocessor controlled chamber to surround the hand with a slight negative pressure, while adding heat to the palm. This negative pressure expands the volume of blood in the palm’s unique vascular networks while heat is simultaneously transferred from the computer managed palm pad into these expanded vascular networks.
No. The body has a thermoregulation system that protects it from too much external heat or cold. The key to this regulation process is the body’s ability to vasoconstrict (close) the heat exchange vascular networks; this happens when the hand is placed in very warm water. The AVACEN 100 methodology uses negative pressure to dilate (open) these networks in the palm so it can continue to infuse heat at a safely managed level.
