AVACEN FAQS

Why use the AVACEN 100?

The AVACEN 100 is the answer for many people who need or prefer an easy to use, drug-free alternative for temporary relief of pain, which might be associated with a variety of chronic and acute medical conditions such as Arthritis. Besides avoiding the detrimental effect of possible damage to the heart or liver by some pain medications, additional reasons for this preference may include:

• Values or philosophical orientations

• Insufficient response to pain medications

• Pregnancy, nursing, or pre-pregnancy

What is the AVACEN 100 and Single Point Treatment?

The AVACEN 100 is a patented and FDA cleared Class II medical device that uses cutting edge technology developed by AVACEN Medical. It 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.

How do I use the AVACEN 100?

Simply place your hand into the AVACEN 100 for a comfortable treatment session.  Session duration can range from twenty to thirty minutes depending on your needs. 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.

What is The AVACEN Treatment Method?

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.

Can’t I just put my hand into some very warm water?

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.

Who are the right people to use the AVACEN 100?

Those who need temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness; the temporary relief of joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor strains and sprains; and muscular relaxation.
