What is AVACEN®?
AVACEN® is a noninvasive, over-the-counter (OTC) heat therapy system indicated for:
- Minor muscle pain and joint pain, and stiffness
- Joint pain associated with arthritis
- Muscle spasms
- Minor strains and sprains
- Muscle relaxation
- Temporary increase of local circulation
How Does AVACEN® Work?
AVACEN® products are intended to improve local circulation in muscle tissue in as little as 20 minutes of treatment, facilitating and improving microcirculation throughout the entire body. Since 2009, the benefits of AVACEN devices have impacted thousands of people worldwide, with over 20 million safe treatments to date. AVACEN is an FDA Cleared Class II medical device that is safe, effective, noninvasive and easy to use.
When the hand, enclosed in a special patented mitt, is placed inside the vacuum chamber, negative pressure and heat are applied to safely increase the temperature and blood volume flowing through high volume arteriovenous anastomoses (AVAs). It is important to note that the application of heat without negative pressure is ineffective.
Infusing heat into the circulatory system reduces blood thickness (viscosity) and increases microcirculation. Thinner blood facilitates more efficient flow through the skeletal muscles on its route to the smaller vasodilated capillaries (microvascular circulation) which the body uses to radiate the excess ATM produced heat.
An increase in microcirculation enhances oxygen delivery and nutrition to the skeletal muscles while carrying away carbon dioxide and waste. The result – healthier, more relaxed muscles throughout the entire body.
