- Need a large induction coil to supply strong current and an interruptor for both rapid and slow frequency
- Not as good as Sinusoidal Tub Bath as alterations are sharp and therefore more uncomfortable. Use the sinusoidal where possible.
- Slow or medium - Stimulating or Tonic - 5-6min
- Rapid - Sedative - given at lower current strength (amps) for 10- 15min
