SCENAR is an acronym for Self Controlled Energo-neuro Adaptive Regulator.
SC – Self-Controlled: The SCENAR device establishes a biofeedback link with the body when in use, constantly changing the properties of the applied electric impulses, depending on the measured reaction from the body.
EN – Energo-Neuro: The effect of SCENAR is based on electric impulses of a specific shape; patterned after the natural nervous system discharges of the human body
AR – Adaptive Regulator: The SCENAR device not only provides direct therapeutic effect,but also activates the natural defences of the body 1 2.
The effect is achieved through the stimulation of reflective zones and acupuncture points on the skin surface.
Overall, SCENAR is an effective, non-invasive medical technology, which works by stimulating the body’s inherent self-healing mechanisms.
Its direct effect is several times stronger than of other physiotherapeutic devices, with no undesirable side effects. 3 4 5 6 7 8.
