The scenar was invented and designed 40 years ago by two Russian doctors (Dr Revenko and Dr Karasev) in order to help astronauts stay healthy in space. After the collapse of Russia, this technology has been made available to the medical and healthcare community.
Scenar combines the most up-to-date bio-electrical technology with the ancient healing art of the East. It enhances the body's own healing mechanism by building a new nervous system response. The aim of the Scenar is to induce the release of enough neuropeptides to relieve pain and initiate a healing response through the body's own active feedback mechanism.
It's a bio electrical medical device used by healthcare professionals to treat acute and chronic pain, sports injuries, arthritis, back pain and inflammation among other things. It is non-invasive and gentle, working with the body as a bio feedback system to reinstate a process of homeostasis.
The Scenar works on the skin to reach directly the central nervous system stimulating the natural adaptive process of the body and nervous system so that the body can heal itself. The therapist is able to find the primary and secondary site of an issue that the client is dealing with, for example, inflammation, muscle spasm, pain, swelling and loss of sensation. It is proven to provide a quick and sustainable pain relief promoting increased function and quicker rehabilitation.
The difference between the Scenar and a Tens machine is its ability to react to changes in the body's response to those impulses by adjusting strength, frequency and timing for optimal and fast healing to the area.
