Posted by Daniel R. on 2/19/01 at 11:07 (039387)

Dr. Z I wrote you 3 weeks ago about i was looking for a machine ossatron in México, I found one clinic in Monterrey N.L, I had my first application for my plantar fascitis, but I am the first patient, and the doctors don´t have the experience for to know what is the funcional energy for operate, and what is the normal frecuency, they told me that i need 1 session of 20 minutes every week ( 3 sessions), Could you give me information about the funcional operate the machine....

In my first aplication i am feeling some changes in my Right foot, the pain diminish 30 % i think is a good advance, i need to complete my treatment for to have better results.

Daniel - FYI, I just had my first treatment on Friday - mostly done with 16,000 volts (started out with less), 3,600 pulses. Basically, he started out low and increased the voltage until I reached my tolerance (probably pretty low). I also felt immediate improvement. Best of Luck!

The Ossatron # by the Fda is 18kv with 1500 pulses at 2 hz. If your Drs. did not know this call Healthronics to let them know. Jasmine it sounds like you has the Orbasone not the Ossatron. These # are to low to work with the Ossatron. This is why you have to know What machine is being used.
Glad to hear you are doing good.
