"DEEP OSCILLATION® was very well received"

doppull up

DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy was extremely well received by the attendees at the Scottish AACP Conference 2014; largely due to it's non invasive application through vinyl gloved hands or applicators and the results achieved in less then twenty minutes of application (reduced pain, swelling and improved range of motion).  The depth of tissue permeated (8cm) was of great interest to visitors at the PhysioPod stand, a fact proven by the Cuban AB Burns study.  Orders have already been taken from CSP's attending the event. PhysioPod™ UK Ltd are delighted to have accepted the kind invitation of AACP to attend their prestigious Annual Conference on 9th-10th May 2015 which will be hosted by The Hilton in Coventry near Birmingham.
