For the first time the effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® on the tissue was visualized with diagnostic ultrasound. Dr. MSc. Luis Felipe Medina C. Lic. TF has summarized his complete examination in an impressive documentation.
Many medical studies show that DEEP OSCILLATION® reduces pain. The effect in the case of trauma-induced pain is seen in a reduction of noxious inflammatory potential (inflammation syndrome and, among other, Calor, tissue acidosis and prostaglandin) of TRPV1 pain receptors, explained by the mechanical distribution and intensified interstitial drainage via DEEP OSCILLATION®.
In an ex-vivo study Boisnic and Branchet (2013) found significantly fewer TRPV1-expressing keratinocytes than in the control group following DEEP OSCILLATION® treatment. The findings from ex-vivo skin models also confirm a statistically significant pain-reducing potential through DEEP OSCILLATION®.

How it works
In contrast to externally applied, mechanical forms of therapy, (e. g. vibration), the therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® takes place in the tissue itself and works through the entire depth of the tissue. This causes DEEP OSCILLATION® to be especially gentle and makes it an unmatched treatment alternative for fresh trauma, from Day One post operatively, for acute pain and in the area of open wounds.
DEEP OSCILLATION® is a unique, patented treatment method. Its special structure allows you to create 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 DEEP OSCILLATION® are clinically proven:
- Highly effective in reducing pain
- Effective in reabsorbing oedema
- Promotes wound healing
- Improves the trophicity
- Rubor reduction
- Improves the quality of the tissue
For the treatment, the patient holds a titanium neutral element loosely between the fingers. The pleasant therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® is created beneath the gloves of the therapist or the hand applicator, which is moved in a circular motion above the tissue.
Due to its non-invasive, non-traumatic and highly effective approac, DEEP OSCILLATION® is particularly suitable for the following applications:
With DEEP OSCILLATION®, oedemas and haematomas can be relieved pre- and postoperatively considerably faster than with conventional therapies. Because it can be used at an extremely early stage, wound healing is stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation processes are inhibited and pain is significantly reduced over a sustained period. Scar quality is improved.
DEEP OSCILLATION® is therefore frequently used as a routine adjuvant post-operative therapy, for instance in oncology, neurology and traumatology. Due to its very gentle therapeutic effect it is used as a first line therapy for conditions after e.g. mastectomy, Caesarean section, osteosynthesis, endoprosthesis etc.
Use of DEEP OSCILLATION® reduces volume in the case of primary and secondary lymphoedema. The therapy is also increasingly used with success for lipoedema. DEEP OSCILLATION® has a preventive and anti-fibrotic effect: incipient fibrosis in particular can be treated effectively. Skin conditions and lymphatic drainage are improved.
In the case of traumata and damage from overstraining, DEEP OSCILLATION® has a direct oedema- and pain-reducing effect and consecutively stimulates self-mobilisation in pain-relieved areas, thus enabling an early return to active life. For sportspersons it means an earlier commencement of active forms of therapy and training, for ‘normal‘ patients a swifter return to activities in daily life.
DEEP OSCILLATION® is being increasingly used for secondary wound healing, regrettably often as a last resort. DEEP OSCILLATION ® is an efficient adjuvant treatment option in the case of both post-operative and diabetic wound healing disorders and oedema-induced secondary wound healing.
In the case of second-degree burns wound healing is significantly accelerated and qualitatively improved by DEEP OSCILLATION®.
In indications such as fibromyalgia syndrome, Sudeck´s dystrophy etc., which are accompanied by chronic pain, DEEP OSCILLATION® has a strong pain relieving effect, which often allows for a reduction of medicine intake. The treatment promotes mobilization to a great extent, alleviates muscle stiffness and tackles impairments in activities of daily life, with consequent positive effect on fatigue, fears and depression.
In brain stoke rehabilitation DEEP OSCILLATION® is used for semi-paralysed regions of the body to improve trophicity and reduce spasms in affected areas, and also for lymphatic drainage, for instance to treat lymphoedema in the head area. The therapy is also used with great success for children with cerebral palsy and tetraplegia to reduce spasms and treat bowel obstipation.
